First and foremost, Avantasia is Tobias Sammet, singer of Edguy, an extremely popular Power Metal-Band from Fulda, Germany. But Avantasia also are Alice Cooper, Michael Kiske (Unisonic), Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray), Jørn Lande (Ayreon), Klaus Meine (Scorpions), Bob Catley (Magnum), Sharon del Adel (Within Temptation) and many more stars from the world of Metal and Rock. Avantasia isn’t just a band, it’s a Metal Opera. The records tell stories about the magical world of Avantasia, of involuntary heroes, of life, love, death and time itself. This unique project is as ambitious as it is moving. And it is another evidence of how diverse Metal can be.
