I was also asked if I’d like to write songs for other artists and I refused, because if I write a cool song it is supposed to be an Edguy or Avantasia song.
Tobias Sammet showed once more that he is one of the best songwriters we have in Metal right now
As Tobias introduces the band, he only gets as far as Felix Bohnke with “and on the drums, the drummer…” who then proceeds to play a drum solo.
I think I don’t need to say so much about the musicianship on this album. All bandmembers are in fantastic shape and everyone has moments on this album where he can shine. The band is tight as ever and Tobi Sammet is also in top form. Productionwise it’s a bit too polished this time. Some more edges and a more raw production would have fit better to the songs.
