The mighty Rhapsody are back with a new label after years of legal battles. The question is; have the past years exhausted the band, or is The Frozen Tears Of Angels the masterpiece they claim it is?

There's no doubt that The Frozen Tears Of Angels is a Rhapsody album; flamboyant, colourful, cheesy and theatrical, the kings are back. This isn't the absolute masterpiece you might have been waiting for however, but neither is it a disappointment. Opening "Sea Of Fate" might show us that Luca Turilli's fingers haven't ceased up, and the silky smooth "Crystal Moonlight" might be mildly catchy, but these songs fall short of the wild energy and pomposity you might have experienced on the Dawn Of Victory or Power Of The Dragonflame albums for example.

Rhapsody Of Fire is a name synonymous with power metal. Anyone who has ever delved even the smallest bit into this genre undoubtedly has heard of this band. This fact is with good reason: Rhapsody Of Fire is a freaking powerhouse of talent and epic ability. Unlike their last couple albums, The Frozen Tears of Angels satisfies every bit of the unicorn riding, dragon slaying fantasies of Rhapsody Of Fire nerds, while maintaining super solid, well written metal songs.

As far as I know, the last known date was april 30th but it had yet to be confirmed.

I hope it will be along the lines of the old albums and not anything like SOEL II or TOA because both are utterly boring. TOA is especially bad.

Well since it is "3rd Chapter" following the previous two...i dont think it will be so very different...but i find SOEL II quite good (though older really are better) so i wont mind an album like that...another album like TOA will be disaster

Not too good song for a promo, they should make a song like a "Silent Dream" in the previous album

I got it today. Great album. Will need time to digest properly, but it seemed good - not outstanding (apart from one really great track) - but good. Time will tell.

How can you have it today=O!! its going to be out on April 30th and you have it today=O=(!! LUCKY=P... So i got a question is it much better than Triumph or Agony?=) because i think it's there weakest album of all time (in my opinion).. When i listen to Sea Of Fate it remained me of Power Of The Dragonflame and Dawn Of Victory=)!!!M/..

I'm anxiously waiting for this album. It's been too long since I've heard from Rhapsody of Fire. Their last album wasn't all that great.

I hope this isn't going to be a letdown like Luca's " The Infinite Wonders of Creation" which was a blasphemy after the awesomeness that was "Prophet Of The Last Eclipse" which is one of my all time favorite albums.

I heard the demo on their sire though. Keeps my hopes up!

I can't stop listening to that excerpt from Reign of Terror. This is simply amazing! The music, the screams and the choir all together are awesome, and unexpected too.
I bet this is a fairly long song. I doubt they would put such an awesome moment in a 4 minutes song.

Probably one of the best moments in a Rhapsody song I've heard so far!
