The pre-order for Avantasia‘s new album “A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society” has launched here.
Avantasia mastermind Tobias Sammet comments:
“There are still some special voices and artists left that I wanted to work with; one of them being Nightwish singer and frontwoman, Floor Jansen. ‘Misplaced Among The Angels’ was already finished when I asked Floor to contribute to the song. She said she could imagine singing it, although she wasn’t 100% sure in the beginning if the lower range passages would suit her rather higher range singing style. But without further ado, she gave it a shot and she delivered unbelievably. I personally think that ‘Misplaced Among The Angels’, complete with Floor’s strong voice, is one of the best ballads of my entire career”.
“A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society” consists of eleven magical songs and features numerous prestigious guest stars. The album was produced by Tobias Sammet alongside Avantasia guitar player Sascha Paeth, with cover artwork by Swedish illustrator Alexander Jansson.
