AVANTASIA “Moonglow” – Releases On February 1st, 2019

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on November 1, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Here is the official press release of The record label:

The wait is finally over! Tobias Sammet is pleased to announce the release of the upcoming AVANTASIA masterpiece Moonglow on February 1, 2019 through Nuclear Blast. Comprising 11 tracks, the new opus once again features several guest vocalists. This time round, Tobias worked not only with well-known faces such as Ronnie Atkins, Jørn Lande, Eric Martin, Geoff Tate, Michael Kiske or Bob Catley but also with new singers like Candice Night, Hansi Kürsch and Mille Petrozza who help to vitalize the new AVANTASIA record. Its cover artwork was created by Alexander Jansson.

Comments Tobias Sammet: “It’s alive! After more than two years of hard work – and what felt like 71 overnight shifts back to back recently – we’re ready to unleash Moonglow upon the universe. I believe it’s the most adorned and detailed album we’ve ever produced. Not over ambitious, but there is a lot of love for detail in there. AVANTASIA is the ultimate playground for a musician’s wildest fantasies to come true: Celtic elements, world music elements, big choirs, atmospheric stuff, amazing guest vocal performances and of course all that wrapped up in what I consider to be the typical AVANTASIA sound. Someone in the music business just told me that the embellished nature of the sound makes it hard to market it, it doesn’t fit in the contemporary musical landscape and “if you take a look around, no one really sounds like that.” – EXACTLY! THANK YOU! I can’t wait to release Moonglow, take my friends of the AVANTASIA family and hit the road for the big Moonglow World Tour.

Moonglow – Track List:

01. Ghost In The Moon
02. Book Of Shallows
03. Moonglow
04. The Raven Child
05. Starlight
06. Invincible
07. Alchemy
08. The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
09. Lavender
10. Requiem For A Dream
11. Maniac
Bonus Track:
12. Heart

From Nuclear Blast:

Forever Warriors, Forever United – 100 days to go until the release of DORO‘s highly anticipated new studio album. 100 days of waiting until the metal queen unleashes 25 (!) brand new songs, her first double album ever, upon the music world.

On Forever Warriors, DORO channels her inner wild warrior, with tracks like ‘Bastardos’ or the first single ‘All For Metal’ (release: June 8th) affirming this. Her duet with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg ‘If I Can’t Have You…’ is sure to bring any metal head to their knees. This is DORO like you’ve never heard her before!
