AVANTASIA have released a brand new song!
The new song, titled The Inmost Light, is from the symphonic/power metal band spearheaded by Tobias Sammet‘s upcoming new album, A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society, which is scheduled to be released in October this year. The new song features a guest appearance from HELLOWEEN‘s Michael Kiske.
Speaking about the new song, Sammet says, “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.”
