Event Details

The Italian kings of symphonic-metal RHAPSODY OF FIRE are releasing a new album and coming to present it in November in ZLÍN!

For over thirty years, fans of symphonic melodic metal can count on one thing: RHAPSODY OF FIRE do nothing by halves! These Italian masters of music can look back at their impressive catalog of 14 studio albums, three EPs and two live recordings to date, all of which contain warm heart, passion and an inexhaustible amount of ideas. Since 1993, the main brain of the band has been its founder Alex Staropoli, who is referred to as the creator of the film music genre and his band as one of the most charismatic acts in the world of metal. In addition, Staropoli recruited a highly creative world-class guitarist, Roby De Micheli, who joined them in 2011 and contributed plenty of harsh metal riffs and virtuosic solos to contrast the band's symphonic style.

This year, exactly on May 31st, RHAPSODY OF FIRE will release a new record 'Challenge The Wind', which they will present to Europe! To ZLIN, Masters of Rock Café will the "Challenge The Wind" tour arrive on 22nd of November, 2024!

RHAPSODY OF FIRE's new album 'Challenge The Wind' is the fastest and hardest in the band's history to date. "Compared to all previous Rhapsody Of Fire records, the current album consists entirely of fast numbers, not a single ballad," reveals the songwriter and keyboardist. "None of our records have had as much pure and unadulterated metal as 'Challenge The Wind'!"

With RHAPSODY OF FIRE expect this time very dynamic and intense musical adventure! In addition, a special guest of the tour is the very popular German melodic-power metal band THE UNITY with their energetic "The Hellish Joyride"! Don't miss it!

Tickets, at a super introductory price, valid until the end of August, can be ordered at this website or in the Ticketportal network.
