    On August 16, 2011, Rhapsody of Fire announced the friendly departure of long-time guitarist, song-writer, and founding member Luca Turilli and bassist Patrice Guers. Following his departure, Turilli founded his new Rhapsody band, Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, with Guers, his friend and former Rhapsody of Fire session and live guitarist Dominique Leurquin, an unspecified new lead singer and Rhapsody of Fire drummer Alex Holzwarth who became a member of both bands.[2] On January 30, 2012, the band announced their first album, Ascending to Infinity.

    On March 30, 2012, the band finally revealed their new singer, Alessandro Conti. In 2012, Holzwarth left the band due to the impossibility to be fully in both bands. Following his departure, the band announced his new drummer, former Annihilator, Axxis and Stratovarius member Alex Landenburg.

    On May 22, 2012, the first single from the upcoming album Ascending to Infinity, titled "Dark Fate of Atlantis" was released with a music video. On June 22, 2012, the new album was released. The band then started its "Cinematic World Tour".

    On October 8, 2012, the band revealed that Leurquin seriously injured his left hand with a circular saw, almost losing it: "After the complicated surgery and everyone around thinking it will be difficult for Dominique to play his beloved instrument once again, the doctors spent some more optimistic words to describe the situation, speaking about a long period of rehabilitation and some major problems eventually related to the thumb only. Therefore it seems there will be again the possibility for Dominique to play a guitar, and maybe sooner than what can be expected." The injury made it impossible for Leurquin to be a part of the band for almost two years; instead of replacing him with another guitarist for the upcoming Ascending to Infinity Tour, Turilli arranged all the songs to add Leurquin's parts on the backing tracks at lower volume. His return was eventually announced on August 9, 2014, with the band's concert at the Made of Metal Festival on August 15 being his first show with the band.

    On 23rd March 2015, Nuclear Blast announced Prometheus: Symphonia Ignis Divinus for release on June 19th in the EU, June 22nd in the UK and June 30th in the US
