AVANTASIA

The release also features the video from your 2004 show in Sao Paulo. But outside of the rock operas and heavy metal, what music inspires and influences Tobi? We come here to shoot videos, so why not come here to play a live show! We have so many singers on stage and we have so many songs, we can simply play two more Jorn songs or two more Bob Catley songs. Two of the new songs are quite cheesy, but good cheesy, not bad cheesy. Do you have any final messages for your fans in Serbia and our readers? Given that you spend a lot of time together all the time and the tours last for several months, are there any fights or tensions between you, except for when Jorn sings drunk while everybody is sleeping? F irst and foremost, I would say. The man behind German power metallers Edguy and symphonic powerhouse Avantasia has something of a knack for making big, bombastic heavy metal. It marks a new chapter in the Avantasia story, both metaphorically and conceptually.

Tobias Sammet Interview: Avantasia is not a Trophy Collection

Tobi sammet

I tried to find a vehicle that is strong and gives me the chance to put my thoughts and my personal feelings and emotions into individual lyrics. When I write a song in the back of my mind I have Michael Kiske or Eric Martin or Bob… You approach a song differently when you write it for Bob. It looked dangerous but at the same time it was a bit Rocky Horror Picture Show. Inviting younger musicians who were influenced by you. And I felt really happy having so much freedom and no stress. These people mean something to me. Look for adventure and follow your heart! I listened to it over and over and eventually began to like it and that was the start of my love affair with Kiss.

And for the first time in my life, I was completely free. The most humble person I have met. When I was young I never seemed to be able to find a mold to fit or a group to belong to. But before his metal opera project brought him worldwide acclaim, Sammet started out fronting a band with a rather silly name,. I like pictures of moonlit landscapes.

What you said, touring and album, touring and album… Tobi: Yes, and you have to protect yourself from it. Or one night in Israel in 2000, it was the first time we all got drunk together. Besides that: make sure, if you get advice, that the person it comes from is a person whose advice matters to you. Avantasia Live in Kavarna Photo: Jovan Ristić Since Micheal Kiske will be busy doing the hyped Pumpkins United tour, did you consider who might replace him? Were you ever afraid that the younger sibling would overshadow Edguy and become a priority? All the pictures I have at home are replica art paintings of John Atkinson Grimshaw. Tobi: I know this thing has been flogged to death, the whole topic. He had done the demo for somebody else, and then we left it. Yes, I was a bit sad as I knew it would mean that Michael is not allowed to play with Avantasia anymore, but I have waited for this moment as much as everyone else.

Tobi sammet

Going on stage supporting Iron Maiden and having Steve Harris come to our dressing room to congratulate us on a good show. It was still built like a story and sometimes the story and the idea of writing a story is a hindrance of doing something that leaves room for the individual poetic aspect and lyric. And I envisioned the captain to sing with the accent of Pepe le Pew. Without spoiling too much, what can you tell me about the story the new album is going to start? Tobi: Dealing with myself pretty much laughs. I want to do it because I believe in it and if it feels right.

It may be something different tomorrow. The creature feels that there is no place for it in that beautiful, glossy, shiny reality of the bold and the beautiful. I imagine his stage moves and it becomes a Magnum-ish Avantasia song. It was only later that I found out who this character is: the guy wearing leopard bell bottoms and making mid-air splits while singing about fornicating on a plane toilet in this other band called. Tobi: The glow of the moon laughs.
