Avantasia Streaming New Song "Dying For An Angel"

An edited version of the track “Dying For An Angel," which is off the upcoming Avantasia album "The Wicked Symphony," is now available for streaming here. "Dying For An Angel" features guest vocals by Klaus Meine of the Scorpions. The song also features Tobias Sammet on vocals & bass, Sascha Paeth on guitars, and Eric Singer (KISS) on drums. The North American street date for Avanatias’s new albums "The Wicked Symphony" (physical release) and "Angel Of Babylon" (digital-only release) is May 4th, 2010.

On the decision to release the next Avanatisia chapter in two separate CDs, Tobias stated: "I have always given my very best, but this new chapter in Avantasia's history too ambitious to be just a regular album. I knew the story would be spread out over two albums when we started working on it in 2006 'cause we had written a real rock opera of over 20 songs even back then. [This] may be the last big epic I will be able to afford, and I want it to be the biggest piece I have worked on so far.”
