The new Avantasia track The Wicked Rule The Night feat. Ralf Scheepers. The new Avantasia album A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society is out October 21st via Nuclear Blast Records!
Tobias Sammet is the front man in Edguy but he also have the Avanasia project and will release its ninth album, A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society, on October 21 via Nuclear Blast. The disc will be the follow-up to Moonglow, which came out in 2019.
Sammet comments on The Moonflower Society: «A moonflower is a creature of the night that blossoms when the world is asleep. For me, it stands on one hand for the weird characters I populate my songs with, and on the other hand for the weird characters I surround myself with in Avantasia. Just let yourself fall into a wonderful, mysterious journey».

Sammet previously stated about The Wicked Rule The Night:« I’m so happy with the upcoming album that you could put out any song as the first single. But somehow, after the last two years, I felt the need to go full steam ahead as soon as I’m let off the leash. And honestly, it’s also cool to know that many would probably have expected a less extreme track to accompany Avanatsia`s re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere».
«But Avanatsia is not stylistically fixed — anything goes, commercial, epic, grotesque or full on the bell, doesn’t matter: all that is part of Avanatsia very own world. We have found our own pigeonhole and different laws apply there. The fans of the first hour know that. And so I have the feeling that ‘The Wicked Rule The Night’ is unpredictable, exciting, fresh and new, despite my trademarks, as you know them partly from Avantasia or also Edguy. Playing it safe is a lot of hogwash!».
