Rating:
7.0
There comes a time as part of life as a fan when you have to resign yourself to the fact that the band will probably never top those earlier albums you have gloriously laid on display in your bedroom shrine, and learn to not expect too much when a new album arises and just be satisfied with it. From Chaos To Eternity comes after only a short wait after the band's last EP The Cold Embrace Of Fear and album The Frozen Tears Of Angels saw release. Since the band's new record contract, they have clearly been hard at work getting their backlog of ideas onto CD.

Rating: 10 Yes!

I just saw the news on facebook. Looks like it's their final album or at least the last in the universe Luca created.
Well, I hope this one will be the ultimate RoF Album!

I hope It's not! RoF is one of the most talented bands nowadays. They shouldn't end up their career with this album!

Well, I think it would probably be a good thing to see the end of the saga. Things must end one day or another and it is best to do it before it becomes too ridiculous or whatever.
I wouldn't mind seeing the end of RoF too, but only if the members starts a new band together. Like what Arjen Lucassen did with Ayreon, when ending the saga and moving forward with Star One.

I'm quite sure Luca will continue his career on his own... or mabye his Dreamquest. Anyway I will miss RoF when they dissapear.

Rating: 9 You guys are mistaken. This will be the last album of the saga, that started with their debut, but not the last album of ROF.

Dargor - 28.04.2011 at 23:26  
Rating: 10 I'm reading early reviews on their official forums, someone who got the promo from Nuclear Blast yesterday, and it seems to be a very shocking but also very promising RoF album!
The guy says they're getting darker (like more harsh vocals) and are adding a lot more progressive elements in their music.

I quote here: "Some will hate this album, I'm afraid... but it may be the biggest surprise of the year in terms of "band evolution". Really."

  Yeh, I've listened to it just once so far... it's a little different from their usual, but nothing drastic.

Rating: 9 It has leaked, and I can proudly say that it is the best Rhapsody album since Symphony of enchanted II... Already preordered!
Zelse - 04.06.2011 at 19:32  
  This album is incredible. Blew me away. It's darker, heavier, and has a couple progressive elements in it, but it still has that Rhapsody sound. The chorus on the title track is one of the most anthemic they've done in a long time.

As for the final, long song... amazing. Perfect ending to 14 years of fantasy!

Rating: 9 A good album,really i enjoyed it.but not on par with their previous release i think
Andreas - 18.06.2011 at 16:18  
  Sounds good so far. I'm not going to vote yet, needs more spins.
Therapy? - 20.06.2011 at 14:16  
Rating: 8 Phew I'm overwhelmed with all the Rhapsody releases lately. First they vanish for four years and now they suddenly release two CD's and an EP in just over a year. I've only just bought their previous album and not even the EP yet. Gonna download this (of course buy it soon too) and compare both albums.

Rating: 10 Amazing album, love everything, Aeons Of Raging Darkness and Heroes Of The Waterfalls' Kingdom, best Rhapsody songs ever, but the whole cd is awesome.

Here. Take the president of my country, Sebastian Piñera, and you can give me Rhapsody of Fire. It's fair enough

Rating: 8 A good album,but i'm a little disappointed,
i think they'll never make another album as great as SOEL DoV.....
NEO-CRUSADER - 08.08.2011 at 06:32  
  It is very sad to see the band that introduced me to power metal skirt so close to black metal. every one else here does great as musicians except lione. I mean dont get me wrong i do like aggressive vocals but more like thrash aggressive not black\death aggressive.The few songs they had done in the past like when demons awake or the black order where great but this extensive use of these screams is very dissapointing, one of the biggest reasons i listen to power metal is for the operatic vocals like Dio,Dickinson and Halford, hope they dont continue down this path
R'Vannith - 08.08.2011 at 09:12  
Rating: 8 Does anyone know who does those harsher vocals on 'Aeons Of Raging Darkness'? They sound very familiar..
I like these vocals, wouldn't really say that they're black or death though.

Edit: Surely it has to be the vocalist for this band: http://www.myspace.com/thirdeyeband

Oops, must have missed this post, thanks mate. And really? Fabio? Goes to show how diverse his vocals can be!

  I usually dont listen to power metal except it was something symphonic power stuff like epica.im not sure what i feel about this album.but i liked Aeons Of Raging Darkness very much
JakeTheSage - 09.09.2011 at 04:44  
  Loved it. Easily my favorite album this year.
Ellrohir - 23.08.2012 at 19:51  
  For me this is quite a letdown, instead of "grande finalle" of Dark Secret saga...assuming Luca Turilli's new album scored 7 in my review, this would have like 5 decent cover art though

Rating: 10 This album is perfect. It have everything great on Power Metal.
AngelofDeth - 26.03.2013 at 19:47  
Rating: 8 Definitely has a more progressive vibe and orchestration seems to be less prominent, though it has some kickass guitar tracks and catchy choruses.

Probably my least favorite by RoF but its still decent.
