    I was wondering the same damn thing! They highlight all the stars, but never once answer that question..... Hell of a cast of singers though. Cannot wait to hear this!

    God, I hope not. It'll just be a Strato album with a bunch of guest singers.

    DO WANT!

    The snippets sound like your standard symphonic metal to me. I don't care. I WANT.

    I don't think it's exactly a state secret considering some of the public comments on facebook previously from those that were just announced for the project.

    You may as well get your disappointment out of the way now and focus on that warm & fuzzy AoRish opera that you are jazzed about.

    Sounds good to me. Frontiers is good at quality control, I don't think they'll let Tolkki get all weird. It should be straight metal/hard rock goodness.

    Damn straight Tobi's Avantasia has competition. And much-needed competition too, IMO.

    This sounds killer. Can't wait to hear the rest.
