Tobias Sammet’s AVANTASIA releases its 8th studio album “Moonglow” on February 1, 2019, and will surprise its fans with it: Opulent, detail-loving, melancholic and above all personal, it is as artistically outstanding as the fascinating cover artwork of the renowned Swedish draftsman Alexander Jansson . In addition to famous AVANTASIA guest singers such as Michael Kiske (HELLOWEEN), Ronnie Atkins (PRETTY MAIDS), Eric Martin (MR.BIG), Geoff Tate (Original QUEENSRYCHE), Jorn Lande and Bob Catley (MAGNUM) , new guests such as Candice are also brilliant Night (BLACKMORE’S NIGHT), Hansi Kürsch (BLIND GUARDIAN, DEMONS & WIZARDS) andMille Petrozza (KREATOR) . For two years, Tobias Sammet has taken time to gather new ideas, to immerse himself in other worlds, to turn his heart out and to open new AVANTASIA chapter with “Moonglow” . With no time constraints or obligations, and detached from concessions to the music market, the singer and songwriter barricaded himself in the specially designed “The Great Mystery” studio, writing day and night on the new material until eventually eleven tracks merged into a work called “Moonglow “ And also sets new standards for the artist himself.
