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 of ex-Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate. Watch the new lyric video for “Alchemy”.

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 opus, Moonglow is a masterpiece in rock, that intentionally refuses to follow the spirit of today and goes out to all the fans that are ready to be taken away on a fantastic journey to another world. Only few of the spectacles that nature offers us are as ambivalent as moonlight is. Without the pressure of time or obligation and free from the constraints of the music industry, the singer and songwriter barricaded himself in his own “The Great Mystery“ studio and worked on new material night and day, until finally 11 tracks were put 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 about his first #1 in his home country.
