Turilli describes his playing style as "classical" and arpeggio-based rather than "bluesy" and scale-based (Can you say Yngwie?). He moves little along the fretboard, and instead works across it, creating sweeps of notes that often span several octaves.

. The video features T. fitted with medieval
clothes, headed for his coronation as "king of the nordic twilight". He is accompanied by singer Olaf Hayer
