Avantasia released a new magic chapter entitled Ghostlights.
Tobais Sammet as frontman of powermetalband Edguy again did one hell of a job gathering some of the very best voices and some highly rated musicians to create a majestic album full of powerfull and very cathy melodic powermetal anthems.
There is no other act to compare with this.
Together with longtime co producer Sasha Paeth Sammet has made a perfect continuation of Avantasia's discography.
From the Meatloaf influenced first song and single Mystery Of A Blood Red Rose to the Queensryche styled Seduction Of Decay with Tobias Sammet and Geoff Tate duelling perfectly on vocals.
But there is so much more..
Also on vocals we have none other than Jorn Lande, Ronnie Atkins, Dee Snider, Michael Kiske, Robert Mason, Marco hietala, Sharon den Adel, Herbie Langhans and last but not least Bob Catley.
All metalfans can start drooling now...!
This album is so diverse and beautifully arranged i think it will be very hard for any band to top this release this year.
Absolutely worth the 5 stars..!
That Iron Maiden has recorded 4 instrumental tracks in their entire career, 3 tracks are featured on their first two albums. They are Transylvania, The Ides of March, Genghis Khan and Losfer Words from the Powerslave album.
