After triumphantly storming the worldwide charts with new album Moonglow, TOBIAS SAMMET’s AVANTASIA is premiering an official lyric video for the track ‘Alchemy’, which features the distinctive vocals of ex-Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate.
TOBIAS SAMMET comments: “When I wrote ‘Alchemy’ I had no one but Geoff Tate in mind. He is one of the most influential singers in the history of Melodic Metal and I have always adored albums like QUEENSRYCHE’s ‘Rage For Order’ and ‘Operation Mindcrime’. And that type of singing was exactly what I imagined to hear in AVANTASIA. When we were in the studio there was magic in the air, Geoff delivered and even though thousands of singers have been inspired by him, there is only one Geoff Tate. What a great addition to the AVANTASIA family. I can‘t wait to travel around the globe with Geoff and the team in a couple of days.”
