Avantasia: Ghostlights

Album Review

The stars align for an ambitious rock opera

Edguy frontman Tobias Sammet’s Avantasia project indulges his love of rock opera, inviting various special guests along the way.

Alice Cooper has already bought into the Avantasia concept, as have members and alumni of Saxon, the Scorpions, Kiss, Helloween and Symphony X. Now Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel, ex-Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate and Nightwish bassist Marco Hietala join the cast of Avantasia’s seventh album, which feels like a Broadway musical stuffed with soaring hard rock anthems.
