AVANTASIA – release a new lyric video for ‘Alchemy’

After triumphantly storming the worldwide charts with new album MoonglowTOBIAS SAMMET‘s AVANTASIA are premiering an official lyric video for the track ‘Alchemy’, which features the distinctive vocals ofex-Queensrÿchesinger Geoff Tate. Watch the new lyric video for ‘Alchemy’https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loKZyb0xOz0

TOBIAS SAMMET comments: “When I wrote ‘Alchemy’ I had no one but Geoff Tate in mind. He is one of the most influential singers in the history of Melodic Metal and I have always adored albums like QUEENSRYCHE’s ‘Rage For Order’ and ‘Operation Mindcrime’. And that type of singing was exactly what I imagined to hear in AVANTASIA. When we were in the studio there was magic in the air, Geoff delivered and even though thousands of singers have been inspired by him, there is only one Geoff Tate. What a great addition to the AVANTASIA family. I can‘t wait to travel around the globe with Geoff and the team in a couple of days.”

AVANTASIA’s latest opusMoonglow is a masterpiece in rock, that ignores the conventional way of creating music and transports fans into a new and magical world. Barricading himself in his studio, aptly called The Great Mystery,Tobias worked tirelessly on new material, until finally 11 tracks were brought 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 on his first #1 in his home country.
