Comments Tobias Sammet:
“I really can’t wait to unleash »Moonglow«. First reactions by press and friends are the most enthusiastic comments I have ever gotten in my whole career of 27 years. No bullshit, it’s the truth, Sascha and I are overwhelmed!
In order to avoid boredom, in the middle of promotion and tour preparations I was getting myself involved in every detail of the album sleeves, booklets and packaging, to make sure the album drags the listener into a different world. I wanted »Moonglow« to be an overall experience for escapists like myself.
My favourite edition is the giant super strictly limited art book edition with bonus track and a bonus CD. A massive coffee table book with photos, interview, liner notes and illustrations of Victorian painter Grimshaw who has been very inspirational to me. This book edition is everything it takes to invite the listener into the world of »Moonglow« and its productional process.
There is also a smaller digibook version that features one bonus track and that is limited and beautiful as well. And of course there are also vinyl editions to hug, feel, watch, smell and caress.
I am extremely proud of all these little treasures and can’t wait to unleash them!”

Comprising 11 tracks, the new opus once again features several guest vocalists. This time round, Tobias worked not only with well-known faces such as Ronnie AtkinsJørn Lande,Eric MartinGeoff TateMichael Kiske or Bob Catley but also with new singers Candice NightHansi Kürsch and Mille Petrozza, who bring a new flavour to this AVANTASIAalbum. The magical cover artwork was created by Alexander Jansson.
