Pure magic, mesmerizing listeners with the combined artistry of metal, classic rock, and whatever other ingredients needed to be AVANTASIA. No one puts more blood in their songs than AVANTASIA Is.

Tobie Sammet about the new album: From the early song ideas in 2018/2019 to the production, orchestration, keyboards, arrangements, details, I was personally involved so deeply in every little aspect and detail of this album, that you just can’t get an album more personal or closer to my vision than this one. I had time, nothing else to do for the past two and a half years, it was a life of slow motion with music and my studio Mysteryhausen serving as a portal to another world, full of music and original encounters with my muses keeping me sane and hopeful. I’m super proud of the album, some of my best songs, some of my most emotional and extreme vocal performances, some of the the best guest performances ever. I couldn’t be happier with the result and when you hear it you’ll know why!

A paranormal evening with the Moonflower Society features eleven magical and powerful songs featuring many prestigious guest stars. An adventure that captivates audiences with freshness, liveliness, sophistication and enchantment.
