Avantasia's outstanding seventh album features yet another all-star metal cast, including the likes of Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Geoff Tate (ex-Queensryche), Marco Hietala (Nightwish), Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation), Michael Kiske (Ex-Helloween), Ronnie Atkins (Pretty Maids), Bob Catley (Magnum), Jorn Lande, Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss) and Robert Mason (ex-Lynch Mob).
Ghostlights is another elaborate concept piece that melds Tobias Sammet's love for symphonic, progressive and heavy metal. "The album's concept deals with time and how science tries to manipulate and speed up people's perception of time to align society's pace... I'm taking a look at this, presuming that time is the key to being aware of the spiritual side of our existence," he explains. "The 'story' is set in the 18th century... In England of course..."
