Singer Fabio Lione says: “While our first single "Phoenix Rising" mainly represented a bridge connecting our artistic past and future, with "D.N.A. (Demon And Angel)" we intend to show the modern side of our new band, presenting a song based on heavy guitars, electronic synths and featuring as special guest Elize Ryd of Amaranthe. We all love Elize’s wonderful voice and we immediately thought of her for the duet of this song!”...

Guitarist/keyboardist/pianist Luca Turilli adds: “Lyrically, "D.N.A. (Demon And Angel)" investigates the deepest inner nature of the human being in accordance with some of the most revolutionary studies related with psychoanalysis, focusing on the "shadow archetype" and its relation with the "psychological projection" based on which we tend to see in the other people that dark side we are not able to accept as being part of ourselves. The "mirror" of Carl Gustav Jung doesn’t reflect any illusion and it simply reveals the only way for someone to evolve is based on the fundamental acceptance of his dark side, first step to become conscious of the own shadow, being able to control it and finally transform it into a sparkle of light”.

Guest appearances by Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) and Mark Basile (DGM) among others round off Turilli / Lione Rhapsody’s first studio album. The contemporary cover artwork was designed by Stefan Heilemann (Epica, Pain, Lindemann etc.), who has previously worked on both Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody records.

Luca states: “"Zero Gravity (Rebirth and Evolution)" is much more than an album title. It is a real band mantra underlining the evolution of a great artistic collaboration, a modern day approach and the intention to evolve the band’s sound to a new frontier, conceptually, musically and lyrically. This debut album will definitely present the multiple faces of our new band: modern ultra-heavy guitars, a vocal roller-coaster inspired by Queen’s masterworks, dramatic arrangements, breathing soundscapes enriched by ethnic music elements from different continents and surely the most emotional and intense lyrics we ever had. The new artwork realized by Heile represents the synthesis of such evolution and the deep heartfelt message related with it!”...

Adds Fabio: “"Zero Gravity (Rebirth and Evolution)" represents the perfect evolution of a musical vision we had, a great artistic collaboration to create a new fresh sound with amazing ideas, great production, hard work from great musicians and people involved and most importantly, a fantastic start for this new band. The new artwork realized by Heile represents the synthesis of such evolution in music and an amazing work that underlines the musical adventure you will have and feel listening to the record”.

In support of the album, the band setup a crowdfunding campaign to finance the recording process, through which they collected an overwhelming amount of €60,000 from their loyal and dedicated fanbase.
