Finally! On you find the first audio samples, plus a view into the recording studios of AVANTASIA’s upcoming record „The Mystery Of Time“, which will be out in March 2013. Tobi comments the 2-minute trailer with even more informations: "Hey friends, as you know I am currently working on a new Avantasia album. It's a lot of work, but I am so proud of what we are creating right now - it's amazing stuff. As my little Christmas gift to, and to make Christmas even a little more exciting for you, I'll reveal some secrets today: Of course, Michael Kiske is on board again! I bet you expected this, you can hear him loud and clear, and he is still the number one vocalist in that range - unbelievable! But, what is really new: For the first time in the history of Avantasia, we're working with a real symphonic orchestra: The German Film Orchestra Babelsberg! You may remember it, they have worked with Rammstein, Bryan Adams, Shania Twain, and also with Edguy on the Hellfire Club album. It's an enchanting fairytale we are working on, so we really have no choice but to finally have a real orchestra - after all it's an epic Rock-, or probably Metal Opera! If you click on the clip below, you can check out the orchestra recordings and also, you'll hear a little sample, a rough mix of what's to come in March 2013: THE MYSTERY OF TIME! Enjoy… and Merry Christmas! - Tobi" Watch the clip at: THE MYSTERY WORLD TOUR 2013 European leg: 13.04.2013 (CH) Pratteln - Z7 14.04.2013 (CH) Pratteln - Z7 16.04.2013 (I) Milan - Alcatraz 18.04.2013 (D) Ludwigsburg - MPH Arena 19.04.2013 (D) Kaufbeuren - All - Karthalle 20.04.2013 (D) Fulda - Esperanto Halle 22.04.2013 (D) Berlin - Tempodrom 23.04.2013 (D) Hamburg - Große Freiheit 25.04.2013 (D) Oberhausen - Turbinenhalle 26.04.2013 (D) Lichtenfels - Stadthalle
