Italian symphonic power metal band Rhapsody Of Fire has released a new single, ‘Chains Of Destiny’. It is taken from the band’s new album Glory For Salvation that will be out on 26th November through AFM Records.
“‘Chains Of Destiny’ is an epic, uplifting and intense song, characterised by catchy melodies, fast paced rhythm, great vocals and choirs.” said keyboard player Alex Staropoli. “We always wanted to shoot a videoclip on the Alps and finally we did it. The amazing rocky mountains displayed in the videoclip are just a few hours away from our home town Trieste. Being able to show how beautiful this territory is to the entire world make us very proud.
We decided to make this shooting happen around fall, so we would get some low clouds, light rain and wind. It turned out the coldest weather we could imagine. Altitude of almost 2.000 meters on the sea level and temperature touching the zero, it was truly an epic challenge for the band and the amazing crew we had.”

The Rhapsody Of Fire line-up on the album features Giacomo Voli (vocals), Alex Staropoli (keyboards), Roby De Micheli (guitars), Alessandro Sala (bass) and Paolo Marchesich (drums).
“Terial The Hawk’ represents the best example of how I like to blend baroque and celtic elements with the energy of heavy metal,” said Staropoli, regarding the band’s previous single.
“This song features the Uillean Pipe, Celtic Harp, Violin, Cello and of course the magic Baroque Recorders from Manuel Staropoli! Looking forward to play it live soon!”
