The new single from Rhapsody is somehow disappointing... with such great artcover (the best in their collection so far) and this furious song name : Holy Thunderforce I awaited something powerful and melodic in the same way, in the vain of the Emerald Sword. Unfortunately, although the song starts quite well, it kind of lose it's interest in the chorus... really this was like the best way to lead us to the best hymn like song and what do we get : lalala lala la lala kind of folkloric and really boring chorus. It's not awful, but it's far behind what they usually deliver and I'm a bit afraid that they may have reach their limit and are turning in circles (but I strongly hope not !).

Altough the second song, also coming in the forthcoming album is better than the first one, I still not feel any attraction to it .It's more in the vein of the last album, alterning fast and quiet moments, almost progressive in some way, actually not in some way, it IS progressive. So this one is better and on track 3 you'll find a special version of Rage Of The Winter from the first album and one of Rhapsody's best song, although I doubt that this version tops the one recorded on the album, but still it's my favorite on that realease as well (do you get why I'm worried now ?). Anyway, it's maybe just me and I never thought I'd say that but I'm not really eager to listen to the album, and that's sad :(

Killing Songs :
The new mix of Rage Of The Winter is cool, although it's not really new !
