Avantasia Premiere New Song “The Inmost Light” Featuring Helloween’s Michael Kiske

Avantasia, the project featuring Edguy’s Tobias Sammet, have premiered a new song titled “The Inmost Light.” This track features Helloween’s Michael Kiske and it will appear on the band’s new album “A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society,” which will be released on October 21.

Sammet commented:

“Michi Kiske is not only a good friend of more than 20 years, he has been with Avantasia right from the beginning. His singing inspires me when I compose songs, and while finalizing the writing for a duet with him, it always ends up in a very powerful missile like ‘The Inmost Light’. The sound is in my DNA. It always was an important component of my songwriting, and maybe that is the reason our voices form a strong unit together.

It is always a challenge to work and sing with this kind of expert. You have to put a lot of effort into it in order to not secede.

Michi’s singing and the sound of early Helloween influenced my career.

I wrote ‘The Inmost Light’ in the wake of just throwing everything overboard which would not be essential. I wanted to deliver a short and tight rocket.”

Avantasia Premiere New Song “Misplaced Among The Angels” Featuring Nightwish’s Floor Jansen

Avantasia, the project featuring Edguy singer Tobias Sammet, have premiered a new song titled “Misplaced Among The Angels.” This track features Nightwish singer Floor Jansen and it will appear on the band’s new album “A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society,” which will be released on October 21.

Sammet commented:

“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.”
