LUCA TURILLI’S DREAMQUEST
Female fronted operatic techno metal? Yup, that’s what Rhapsody’s guitar man (exclusively on the keyboards on this project) Luca Turilli unveils with LOST HORIZON, a grandiose 12-track affair ready-made for an over the top Vegas-esque stage show, a figure skater’s latest program, or the bastardized matching of Meatloaf and Evanescence with elements of Abba and Dream Theater thrown in. Heavy on the Euro metal tip with massive orchestration and glass-shattering operatic vocal overtones, tracks like “Energy” and “Virus” exhibit unmistakably dramatic structures that literally scream out to be made into a colossal production. Perhaps one day LOST HORIZONS will be arriving on Broadway, but for now, fans of superfluous symphonic metal will have to settle for this offering.
