AVANTASIA’s latest opus, “Moonglow“ is a masterpiece in rock, that intentionally refuses to follow the spirit of today and goes out to all the fans that are ready to be taken away on a fantastic journey to another world. Only few of the spectacles that nature offers us are as ambivalent as moonlight is. Without the pressure of time or obligation and free from the constraints of the music industry, the singer and songwriter barricaded himself in his own “The Great Mystery“-studio and worked on new material night and day, until finally 11 tracks were put together to form “Moonglow”.

„It’s beautiful to see how this worked out for me with a sound, for which – according to the opinion of some experts – there is no place in this generic mainstream-world. And the best thing is: Fans all around the world love the record and we can kick off our world-tour knowing of their support and have lots of fun!“ comments TOBIAS SAMMET about his first #1 in his home country.
