About the song itself AVANTASIA mastermind Tobias Sammet says:

“In my humble opinion is the perfect overture to the seventy-minute journey which the full album is going to be. Although MYSTERY OF A BLOOD RED ROSE is a rather short composition compared to most other  AVANTASIAsongs, yet I wanted to embellish and amplify it with flamboyance and all  AVANTASIA trademarks. I wanted to make it a detailed piece of fantasy art, but at the same time it was a big challenge to make that painting look inherently consistant if you view it from the distance. The layered choirs took us forever to record and yet nothing distracts from the main theme and flow of the song. Everytime you give it a listen you will discover something else going on. I have a feeling that I have never managed to create such an epic and dreamy atmosphere in just four minutes. I gotta admit, I am slightly proud of it!
