Luca Turilli's Rhapsody Announces Trick Or Treat Frontman Alessandro Conti As Singer

Luca Turilli has finally made the long awaited announcement as to the new Luca Turilli's Rhapsody singer, which has been bestowed upon Alessandro Conti (Trick or Treat). The following announcement was made on the band's website:

"[T]oday, March 30th 2012, is a great and very important day for our band. We are finally proud to present the new singer of LT’S RHAPSODY to the world, the person who, thanks to his unique vocal talent, will contribute to the artistic perspectives of the band in the years to come. The secret is finally revealed: the new singer is Italian and his name is ALESSANDRO CONTI."

Luca Turilli commented: "Alessandro is the singer of our band since many months already but we wanted to present him in the way he deserves, and this means: through his voice!. For this 11th RHAPSODY album we wanted to have a singer able to sing in different ways and offering different ‘colors’. Such ability is fundamental for me as in every RHAPSODY album I like to compose different styles of songs, passing from the most cinematic and epic impact of some songs to the operatic majesty of other ones, from celestial voices to more aggressive tones. Alessandro was just the best choice in this sense as, in between the multitude of all his vocal colors, he has a great high tone but also an operatic approach that makes the difference. He studied at the ‘Corale Lirica Rossini’ of Modena as first tenor, the same school attended by the great and unforgettable Luciano Pavarotti."

The band has also posted song samples of the new album "Ascending to Infinity" below. The album is expected for release on June 29, 2012 through Nuclear Blast.
