Avantasia will release their eighth full-length album, “Moonglow” soon. The latter will indeed be available 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.
On this upcoming release, Tobias Sammet comments:
“Yes, we’ve found a song on the new album that is below the 4 minutes benchmark and it would work as a single. And despite being rather short it’s also representative for the world of AVANTASIA.
Somehow in hindsight I think that my admiration for Mike Oldfield shines through here, which wasn’t intentional but you can’t really control that. And by and large I find the song to be a typical AVANTASIA song nevertheless.
The enchanting Candice Night did an amazing vocal job, and in all modesty, I think so did I, ha! ‘Moonglow’ is a declaration of love to the moon, the night; it’s about entering a different world and the sacred experiences that go along with it.”
