    Alright, so I know there's a few people on here who like, uhh, this "band", but I think they need more attention. Anyway for those who don't know, Avantasia is a compilation of mostly power metal musicians who unite under the leadership of Tobias Sammet. Anyway I think that this is one of the coolest things to happen to power metal in a long time, so enjoy!

    noticed you only put up songs from the first album, which is easily the best one by a significantly large margin.

    Yeah that wasn't really by accident...
    ;)
    Although I do enjoy it all, the first one is the best, followed by the second.

    This thread fails without this track ;) :



    Oliver Hartmann's tone is pure sex, especially during that solo in the middle.

    I had no idea Hartmann played guitar. That dude is a boss, he can sing anything, absolutely amazing pipes. I'd say that in the last 10-15 years in prog/power metal, probably only Russel Allen tops him.

    It's a shame he was never in a great band.

    Sammet's vibrato is annoying as hell though, almost unbearable.

    Even though I prefer Ayreon music when it comes to multiple singer rock operas, Tobias did a damn good job with the Metal Opera albums. I've yet to hear the Wicked Trilogy though for some reason

    You might want to check out Genius as well. Similar idea

    I like some of Avantasia's stuff.



    Michael Kiske FTW. I love the guitar solo too.

    I must say though, Tobias Sammet annoys the hell out of me for some reason even though I don't really mind his voice. Not sure what it is.
