I saw Olli Hartmann was on the roster, and thought it was Olli Herman. Got excited for a minute.

I love Herman but Hartmann is a much better singer imo.

It was more the idea of the direction this be album would be taken if Herman was on it that got me excited. If that makes sense.

Mhm. I love Tobias Sammet. Everything he releases is good. Really consistent. I'll always buy new albums from Avantasia and Edguy.

I haven't followed this project, but I'm really diggin' that tune above. How are his other albums? and how do they compare to the track above?

 

Hard question to answer. There is a lot of material to sort through, but in short... yeah, if you like that you'll dig the other stuff. The albums vary from ballads to "power metal" and everything inbetween... and there's so many albums (including double albums) and songs to sift through. Some solid stuff in there, but also a lot of very weak stuff too, imo.

Well now. Geoff Tate hasn't sounded this good in over twenty years. Perhaps that has to do with him having nothing to do with the music here. Thank you Toby for giving us a respectable offering from Tate. Even if it is only one song.

I agree with KarpeyRyd. Really enjoy this album.

 

 

Ronnie Lee, Jorn and Robert Mason. Magic.

 

 

 

 

Absolutely love this one. It's interesting, there's quite a few songs lately that have a "sympathy for the devil" vibe.

Fate - If not for the Devil, Gus G - Blame it on me, to name a couple.
