Luca Turilli is Rhapsody of Fire's (formerly Rhapsody) guitarist and composer.Read More...
Turilli was born in Trieste, Venezia Giulia. Due to the influence of his father, he became interested in classical music and learned to play piano and guitar. In 1993 he founded the band Thundercross, which was renamed Rhapsody after releasing the first demo, and renamed once again to Rhapsody of Fire for copyright reasons in 2006.
In interviews, he has said that Manowar, Blind Guardian, Helloween, and Crimson Glory are influences on him and the rest of Rhapsody Of Fire.
He is one of the founders of the symphonic power metal band Rhapsody of Fire. He also worked on a trilogy of solo albums as Luca Turilli. He has now formed a second side band, named Luca Turilli's Dreamquest, alongside Dominique Leurquin, which released its first album, Lost Horizons, in the summer of 2006.
Luca Turilli created his own power metal band in 1999. 3 Full-length albums have been released since: "King of the Nordic Twilight", the very cosmic-electronic-power metal oriented "Prophet of the Last Eclipse" in 2002 and "The Infinite Wonders of Creation" in 2006. Vocals performed by Olaf Hayer and in Infinite Wonders of Creation by Bridget Fogle (Dionysus).

- LyricsConfutatis maledictis
Tragedy storms him when demons spare her life
And all discover she has a demonheart, demonheart
Feeling trapped in with the slimy creatures
- LyricsSon of twilight lord of shadows caress of the moonlight
Chasing wisdom over darkness he soon found his way
He beheld the tyrant father hated lord of Kalgor
Close to death he left his castle running through the marsh
He swore to the clouds he'd be born again
- LyricsThe sky became darker when the news there came
His cruel father was coming too fast
Leaving behind him cancer and sorrow
So satisfying his thirst for vengeance
It's time to call the wisdom of the wind
- LyricsTo the wind I will sing the tale of the king
That reigned in peace and love
Of the one of the man who crossed the path
Of the ancient forest of elves
Old lands and red dragons filled his open eyes
- LyricsWelcome to shadow world far under northern skies
Mountains and raging seas, valleys and icy winds
Inter futmina et in tenebris
Mihi horror membra percipit
Quantum mortalia pectora
