Rhapsody Of Fire - Drummer Alex Holzwarth Leaves


It seems like the drama circling around Rhapsody Of Fire's fate refuses to end as shortly after vocalist Fabio Lione's decision to leave the band, now comes an announcement from Alex Holzwarth, who served as the drummer of the band since 2000, that states his departure is to "focus his energies on other projects."

Alex Holzwarth explains: "Some of you may know, I wanted to do something different since a long time and I feel the time is right to focus my energies on other projects. This means I won't be able to play with Rhapsody Of Fire anymore. My bandmates have known about this and they are supportive. I know it comes very soon after Fabio's leaving but I feel that's the best moment to do it as the band is already working on the new line-up. I wish the band everything positive and best luck for their new chapter with a new singer and new drummer. There will be a fresh line-up for an exciting future. I really trust Rhapsody Of Fire for finding the most suitable musicians. All the best to my Rhapsody Of Fire family, friends and fans. See you on the road somewhere!"

I sense a 3rd Rhapsody band in the making. More bands, more money!

Thank you Rhapsody for all those magnificient albums, and also for the 'only good' ones
At least they finished with the enjoyable 'Into The Legend' and not with the horrible 'Dark Wings Of Steel'.

Out of the two "Rhapsody's" I thought this would be the one to survive. WRONG

In some years they will create the "RhapsodyFest" with all the Rhapsody bands.

It's sad

culminating in EVERYONE from each Rhapsody spin off taking the stage at once for a 60 minute mega encore song, "Riding the winds of the emerald destiny wielding the obsidian sword of the great king's revenge... of fire."
