(members bio: http://www.fenixtales.it/biography/members/?lang=en)

In the beginning, the band started out with a very strong Gothic personality (a melodic line harmony that get’s its’ inspiration from the classical music tradition; a singer with a powerful and incisive voice but with a bright vocal timbre; a genre that is borderline between classical and contemporary music; very modern lyrics still with a dark and existential content though), but is now heading towards a symphonic style with a cinematographic impact, thanks to the Metal rhythm which is getting increasingly clear and defined, as well as the choirs and orchestral arrangements. The big variety of musicians taking part in the band affects it in a many-faceted manner with the following inputs as a result: Classical from keyboards and voice, Folk Celtic from the violin, Rock from the bass and the guitar, and, eventually Metal from the drums – all of which contribute to obtaining the special and original sound

“…FENIX TALES vient rappeler une nouvelle fois qu’il est toujours possible d’allier beauté sonore à réussite et l’art lyrique à l’agressivité des décibels…” “…un instant délicat et magique au milieu de ce monde de brutes et de ses avancées incessantes. Un beau conte dans un monde sonore merveilleux !”


“If there is a country operatic metal should come from it is Italy. ” “…FENIX TALES does it great. You get the dramatic feel of an opera listening to this CD. It is almost like you’d want to go to a classical opera (but only just)
