Christmas is drawing near, and Tobias Sammet got his "Nutcracker suit" on already! If you listen to the Tobias Sammet Rockshow on Radio Bob (radiobob.de) on Dec 9th, 21.00 German Time you will get a world-exclusive pre-listening of the new AVANTASIA tune. On December 11th it'll be digitally available from iTunes and other platforms officially. Tobi comments: "'Mystery Of A Blood Red Rose' is a song I originally wrote with MEAT LOAF in the back of my mind - but for some reason the collaboration didn't happen, so I did the song myself. The choirs alone took more than 40 hours to arrange and record - for a four minute song! That pretty much says it all. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing and "More is more"! Have a great day!"
