Turilli the guitar wizard from Rhapsody is back with his 3rd solo album.
After the release of “King of the Nordic Twilight” in 1999 and
“Prophet of the Last Eclipse” in 2002 two outstanding Symphonic
Power Metal releases,
my expectations for ”The Infinite Wonders of Creation” were very
a couple of spins in my CD-player I was actually in a state of shock, I
was expecting some Symphonic Power Metal but what I got was a mixture of
Hard Rock and film score music with big orchestrations???
big change is that half of the songs have female vocals, nothing wrong
with that but I was expecting that Olaf Hayer was singing all of the
songs like on the other two albums.
after 15 to 20 spins I was actually hooked by some of the tracks,
especially “Mother Nature” a hard rockin’ tune with great vocals
by Bridget Fogle, and the last two tracks “Mystic and Divine” and
“The Infinite Wonders of Creation”.
Infinite Wonders of Creation” is a good album but it never comes close
to the first two Luca Turilli albums, it’s sad but true.
