Avantasia Reveals "The Mystery Of Time" Artwork

After announcing a series of guest musicians to appear on the album, Avantasia has now unveiled the cover artwork for new release "The Mystery of Time."

Check out the artwork below, created by British fantasy artist Rodney Matthews. Tobias Sammet of Avantasia comments:

“It is a great honour for me to have Rodney create the artwork of ‘The Mystery Of Time.‘ Since the new album is a conceptual album and its story has a magical and enchanting atmosphere, there was no other painter I could think of to create the artwork. I've had several creative conversations with Rodney during the process and I had the feeling that the concept was inspiring to him right from the start.

"I put a lot of energy into producing a very detailed and fascinating album, and Rodney had that same enthusiasm to create an artwork just as detailed and fascinating. This is a new chapter in Avantasia's history and I think it didn't deserve less than a magical painting by my favorite painter and childhood hero: The one and only Rodney Matthews!"
