Rhapsody Of Fire have released their new lyric video for single ‘Master Of Peace‘ .
The band states:
“We are thrilled to release a new lyric video of our song “Master of Peace”, taken from our upcoming album “The Eighth Mountain” (out February 22nd). In this new song, our hero is facing the challenge to bring peace and make his army victorious while being painfully constraint to watch the battlefield turning red and witness the loss of countless lifes under his command. All victories have a price.“

The album was mixed and mastered by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan), an acknowledged expert of haunting sounds. The lyrical content of The Eighth Mountain marks the beginning of a new story, developed by Roby De Micheli and Alex Staropoli under the title of the ‘Nephlins Empire Saga’ which is based on those fascinating fantasy elements (including the narration courtesy of prestigious British Dracula actor Christopher Lee on the final song ‘Tales Of A Hero’s Fate’) that Rhapsody Of Fire are renowned for, in this instance – roughly speaking – lost, corrupted souls.
“People will find out more details of the saga when they listen to the lyrics,” says Staropoli, not wanting to give away all the album’s secrets. Just this much: “It’s about which path in life you choose. The story may be fictitious but quite obviously relates to reality the way we experience it every day.”
