Avantasia - Detail Next Full Length Instalment

October 21st 2022 has been set as the official release date of Avantasia's new record, A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society. The latter was produced by the band's mastermind Tobias Sammet with guitarist Sascha Paeth, who's also responsible for the mixing process. Cover artwork was painted by Swedish illustrator Alexander Jansson.

Tobias Sammet on the new album: "From the first song ideas back in 2018 / 2019 to the production, orchestration, keyboards, arrangements, details, I have been personally involved so deeply in every little aspect and detail of this album, that you can’t get an album any more personal or closer to my vision than this one. I had the time, nothing else to do in the past two and a half years, it was a slow movement life with music and my Mysteryhausen studio serving as a portal to another world, full of music and quirky encounters with my muses, that kept me sane and hopeful. I am super proud of the album, some of my best songs, some of my most emotional and extreme vocal performances, some of the strongest guest performances ever. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and when you’ll hear it, you will know why!"

While I'm excited for a return to their original sound, I hope they don't lose what they've created over the years. I don't care what people say, but they've created such character with their sound from The Wicked Trilogy to Moonglow, and it'd be a shame for it to be all gone. I really enjoy the Mystery of Time era albums because of the larger symphonic sound, and if they could combine all the stuff they've done over the year in one album, this could be the album of the year for me.
Europower rules.

I don't like neither the title nor the first single, but I'll wait for the final outcome.
My rest seems now calm and deep
Finally I got my dead man sleep
