||"King of the Nordic Twilight" is
a very impressive album by Luca Turilli. This is Luca's first solo
album. You may know Turilli from his guitar playing in his band Rhapsody.
Now I am looking for just about anything by this amazing guitarist
and band. The best way to explain the sound is to cross the sound
of Stratovarius and Therion. If you do that you will have a good understanding
on what this band sounds like. This German band is simply amazing.
Throughout this album, the songs keep interesting. Not once was I
bored with this album. From the heavy paced riffing to the slower
melodic tones to the great solos, this album is well written. If you
are into any form of metal, especially power metal, you will like
this album. A few of my favorite songs include "Black Dragon,"
"Legend of Steel," "The Ancient Forest of Elves,"
and "Where Heroes Lie." This 11 track CD sits on the verge
of 50 minutes of listening pleasure. This is yet another great pick
up by SPV records. "King of the Nordic Twilight" is the
first album by this band, just think how good they will be on their
next album and into the future. It's definitely something that I would
like to see.
