Timo Tolkki Begins Work On Second Avalon CD

After the success of Timo Tolkki’s Avalon debut album "The Land of New Hope," which entered the top 100 album charts in 7 European countries (including a glowing Top 10 entry in Tolkki’s home country Finland), Timo Tolkki has started working on a sequel to his first Metal Opera, slated for a 2014 release on Frontiers Records.

Fans can follow the progress of the making of the new album, including writing and recording sessions and special cameos from the musicians and singers involved, from the new website www.avalonopera.com.

The entire cast of musicians will be revealed one by one in separate video blogs. Fans will be able to interact and take part to different phases of the production through the website and in the social media pages.

The confirmed cast of musicians/singers is once again full of internationally acclaimed artists, with some interesting twists and surprises. It will surely guarantee another masterpiece from one of the forefathers of Symphonic Melodic Power Metal.

The first singer from the cast is Simone Simons of Epica. She is not singing the main role on AVALON II - working title for the album - but will contribute greatly to the release.
