    I've only heard a little bit of their stuff, but it's so great. The most dramatic metal I've ever heard. And the dragon comes in the night, indeed. It makes me laugh, but it's so cool. Very well written stuff. I'm gonna pick up one (or more) of their CDs sometime in the future, what would you recommend for my first purchase?

    Legndary tales or Dawn of victory. Both good albums. Unfortuantely, very repetitive.

    And ditto : Rachmaninov's - Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini" !! ;)

    (How many Rhapsodies are there - this could be a long thread!)

    There's Queen's Bohemian one...

    Although, to be truthful, I couldn't tell you much about the bassline on that off the top of my head :)

    you can pick any record...they are all the same

    the fast drums, the guitar solo from a paganini song, the bass always doing the
    dou dow da dow

    bnut if you like tho heard the bass doing fast scales

    the last records are the ones that you want because they put ...alessandro lotta on bass and he es preatty amazing to

    algo i recommend yngwie malmsteen in the records he plays bass and it is almost the same

    also check stratovarius

    i really dont like power metal
    its it same almost the drums doing really fast and the snare goes like ta ta ta ta ta ta t a (giak)

    except for angra and blind guardian but just beacuse of they vocalist

    Yeah I guess one guy writes all of Rhapsody's stuff, guitar, bass, drums, vocals, orchestra, choir... whatever... the guitarist I think. And he released a solo album. You'll never believe this but it sounded like... Rhapsody.

    Yeah that would be Lucca Turilli. He released three solo albums. The new one is basicaly another Rhapsody record only the setting is in outer space.

    I'd recommend Dawn of Victory; still, as mentioned, once you've heard one you've heard 'em all.
