Written by John Deaux


Italian symphonic metal legends RHAPSODY are currently touring the globe with their ‘20th Anniversary Farewell Tour’. In February/March they’ll finally enter European club stages, which will include a show at London’s Islington Academy! Today, the band can reveal two support bands for this upcoming journey: opening will be Romanian metal outfit SCARLET AURA. Direct support will come from no less than up and coming heavy metallers and label mates BEAST IN BLACK, presenting their recently released debut album ‘Berserker’. This package is definitely not to be missed!

BEAST IN BLACK comment: “We can’t tell how honoured we are for getting the chance to participate in RHAPSODY’s ‘20th Anniversary Farewell Tour’! They are the pioneers of symphonic power metal and influenced a whole generation. It’s going to be a great adventure for us supporting them!”
