Rhapsody's new album, again?!
Discuss it at M-Board

Alex Staropoli commented in the new Rhapsody album: "It's a big secret,. We have a lot of ideas, and we might be doing some new directions, but it's still a secret. The black metal idea is a good one, and we might incorporate some black metal on the next album. So, since we're putting that style on a full Rhapsody release, we really don't see the need to create a full black metal record." The album will be a concept one and release is scheduled for September 2003.

Discuss it at M-Board

Former CRIMSON GLORY vocalist Midnight is still slated to work with guitarist Luca Turilli from Italys RHAPSODY on a forthcoming project, but according to the singers official web site, things have slowed while the two parties work out contracts to make the project workable. In other Midnight news, no progress has been made on the writing or recording front for the planned project between Midnight and CRIMSON GLORY guitarist Jon Drenning. However, Midnight remains fairly adamant that he is in no way interested in a CRIMSON GLORY reunion with him on vocals, and is continuing work on a solo album, which will reportedly feature guest musicians.
