Avantasia, the all-star rock opera spaceship piloted by Edguysinger, songwriter and producer Tobias Sammet, release their eighth full-length album, “Moonglow”, via Nuclear Blast Records on February 15th.
This new 11-song record sees Sammet, among the most talented and popular names in German hard rock and metal, reunited with some familiar faces from previous Avantasia albums. These include original Queensryche lead singer Geoff Tate, Pretty Maids frontman Ronnie Atkins, Michael Kiske of Helloween, Jørn Lande (ex-Masterplan), Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Magnum’s Bob Catley. “Moonglow” also introduces new collaborators Hansi Kürsch of Blind Guardian, Kreator’s Mille Petrozza and Blackmore’s Night frontwoman Candice Night in truly spectacular fashion.
Avantasia released the first (of three) interview trailers, providing an insight about the cover artwork, the album title and the lyrical concept.
