Comments Tobias Sammet,

“It’s alive! After more than two years of hard work – and what felt like 71 overnight shifts back to back recently – we’re ready to unleash Moonglow upon the universe. I believe it’s the most adorned and detailed album we’ve ever produced. Not over ambitious, but there is a lot of love for detail in there. AVANTASIA is the ultimate playground for a musician’s wildest fantasies to come true: Celtic elements, world music elements, big choirs, atmospheric stuff, amazing guest vocal performances and of course all that wrapped up in what I consider to be the typical AVANTASIA sound. Someone in the music business just told me that the embellished nature of the sound makes it hard to market it, it doesn’t fit in the contemporary musical landscape and “if you take a look around, no one really sounds like that.” – EXACTLY! THANK YOU! I can’t wait to release Moonglow, take my friends of the AVANTASIA family and hit the road for the big Moonglow World Tour.”
