Coming out of the neo-classical, theatric, fantasy-oriented school of prog metal is Rhapsody. Their style, while definitely way over the top, is rather above and beyond a lot of their ilk due to quite authentic classical/operatic elements. These elements include orchestral sections and choir-type vocal portions. Their brand of metal is certainly not lacking, though, with great intricacy, speed, and skill. The arrangements are very well done. If fantasy-oriented prog metal is your flavor, then this album is for you. It is one of the best of that style.
