Avantasia

"Avantasia (The Metal Opera) is a symphonic metal project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist and frontman of the power metal group Edguy."
Tobias has announced that he'll be working on new Avantasia material. It should eb amazing. Go here, to Tobias' official site for the confirmation: http://www.tobiassammet.com/
Does anyone like the band? It's amazing, really worth checking out. I can't find any links to the music though.

Part II is fookin mint

Seven Angels is one of the most epic power metal songs ever, I can feel myself being tempted to make poses just imagining it

Sound pretty cool for an epic metal band. Slightly 80's sound. I like Lord better.

Avantasia is amazing. Sign of the Cross is by far my favorite. They are a very good power metal band, but aren't really known. They deserve more respect.

I really dig these guys. Metal Opera - Part One is a great album. Farewell is such an amazing song.

I used to listen to these guys aaaages ago. Haven't listened to them in ages.

Awesome stuff. I prefered part 1 to part 2.

Reach Out for the Light, Breaking away, The Tower = Epic win (from what I remember). My Fave song on Part 2 would probably be The Final Sacrifice. That was probably the heaviest song on the whole two albums as well lol.

Funny thing is, they used over 10 different vocalists on the project, and I couldn't tell the difference between any of them lol (except for the female singer of course).

The new album "The Scarecrow" is awesome! It features loads of great guest musicians.... I mean, the ****ing elite of power metal... Jorn Lande and Michael Kiske (who does an exceptional job) and also "the" Alice Cooper makes an appearance! But what's great about the album is the songwriting. I've truly underestimated Tobias Sammet in everyway! Didn't know he could write such epic stuff. And his singing is great too.... I command each and everyone of you in the metal forum(and the universe) to go out and buy this album!

The title track is pure genius!

In my opinion the new album can not touch the older stuff. It's just a bunch of song with Tobias Sammet with some guest vocalist here and there, it doesn't form a whole like the older albums did. Besides that I think he is trying to hard not to be a standard powermetal writter which he is.

On the other side Jorn Lande and Roy Kahn are my favourite vocalists so their contribution is great to hear.

I still think his songwriting and those great vocalists could be much better.

I'm listening to The Seven Angels and had to bump this.

Avalon + Fantasia = epic power metal band
