Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus (Latin: "Prometheus, Symphony of the Divine Fire", also sometimes stylized as Prometheus — Symphonia Ignis Divinus or Prometheus: Symphonia Ignis Divinus) is the second and final studio album by Italian symphonic power metal band Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, created by Luca Turilli after his departure from Rhapsody of Fire. It was released on June 19, 2015 via Nuclear Blast.[1]

It is the first album with Alex Landenburg on drums, following Alex Holzwarth's departure shortly after the recording of the previous album Ascending to Infinity in order to focus on Rhapsody of Fire. The first single, "Rosenkreuz (The Rose and The Cross)" was released April 24, 2015.[2]

Composition[edit]

The creation of the album involved seven months of composition, three months of production, over 50 days of mixing, working with two choirs, several special guests, including Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear), Dan Lucas (KARO), and David Readman (PINK CREAM 69).

The album contains 70 minutes of epic music, sounding cinematic, bombastic and dramatic. The music is meant to lead the listener on an emotional and memorable journey between quantum gates, parallel dimensions, myths and legends hiding cosmic truths, ancestral secrets and spiritual revelations.[3]
