Avantasia streaming Ghostlights

Avantasia is arguably a notable power metal act and perhaps one of the EU’s most profitable exporters of cheese. Man can’t live on cheese alone, but DMU occasionally attracts fans of mainstream power metal, and sometimes for all its goofiness it’s less idiotic than whatever else is trendy. Ghostlights will officially release tomorrow, but the German entertainment news site Bild (at least I think it’s lightweight news; meine Deutsch ist nicht sehr gut) is currently offering a stream of the album for those who want to preview the album. As is typical for this band, Ghostlights will feature an all-star roster of power metal musicians, and is generally very accessible and poppy; saccharine even once listeners acclimate to the sound. We might give it a review someday; no guarantees.

    Judging by the photo, this album is a Bollywood remake of Sgt. Pepper.

    This guy (Sammet) and all his projects are the epitome of everything that went wrong with Power metal.
    On the other hand, Paeth did some good stuff with Heavens Gate, mainly their second LP, which is one of the best German Power metal albums.

    Metalunderground.com also provides irrelevant metal news…..
