Avantasia Enters The Recording Studio, Posts Video Update

Avantasia has posted a video update online about returning to the studio for a new album, which can be viewed below. The band also comments:

"Tobias is currently in the studio working with a legion of guest instrumentalists and vocalists on a new Avantasia album to be released in spring 2013. The album will once again be a Rock Opera based on a conceptual story very similar to the early Avantasia albums."

Tobias also stated, ""The new material sounds very fresh and new and yet you can hear the old classic Avantasia vibe on the album, it will be an enchanting fairytale again, far away from any musical trends. Our latest album was our most successful album of all time, but I guess it was only that successful because it came from the heart. That's the only proven remedy I wanna stick to. I tried to lay down any thought of expectations, but instead just do a completely unseasonable, unfashionable and even unreasonable piece of art. Anyway, I feel at home when I listen to those melodies, choirs and guitars. I just talked to Michi Kiske and he said that the stuff reminds him a lot of the old classic Avantasia material in the good old Keeper style. As a fan, now that sounds even exciting to me, so the circle shuts. For myself it's hard to describe the material in words, I had and have so many ideas that I had to restrain myself a little, otherwise the album would become too long, and I'm trying not to do a double album this time. However, I am really excited, and I just thought I'd let you know how excited I am. I'll try to give you more updates from now on."
