    Re: Avantasia

    Was updating my collection thread and these guys were in the mix! These guys are one of the best bands bar none I've discovered through the forum so I figured this thread deserves a bump with a song I just discovered I like! :grinthumb

    (kind of an electronic 80's vibe IMO, really creative and different)

    This is AWESOME man! I've always heard these guys as a power pop outfit in the same way as Meatloaf and early Bon Jovi with just more a Metal influence! I'm going to buy this on the strength of the single alone! One question though, who's the chick and has she done anything on her own? :)

    Hear a lot of this band but not heard their material. Any of their heavier stuff to recommend to a newb? :heheh:

    There's heavy stuff on all the albums. More so than ballads. Here's a cool one from the new CD

    Dweller In A Dream

    Did you get the duluxe 2 CD release with the instrumental disc MP?

    I picked it up a couple days ago but haven't listened to it yet.

    The album is great! This track right here is perfect aaaand I just barely found out one of the vocalist is Eric Martin from Mr. Big! :grinthumb

    Metal, I know you might find these cheesy comparisons for a Metal group but with the three albums I own I hear what I think is a really cool fusion of Meatloaf or at least Steinman type compositions with a Bon Jovi pop rock approach. Don't get me wrong it's all Metal but it stands out because of these pop sensibilities! :)
