    Years ago, I wrote in this same blog about going to see Avantasia in their first world tour on 2008. I was pretty excited, yet at the last moment my lil devil, with whom I was supposed to go, said he was too tired and well, he's not a fan really. So at the end I didn't go because I didn't want to go alone. I remember I regretted it right away. The reviews said the show was amazing and besides it was supposed to be the only chance to see them live.
    So when I heard at the end of last year that they might be coming again, I was truly wholeheartedly thankful for this second chance. I got the tickets as soon they came on sale.
    I also happen to love The Mystery of Time, so it was perfect and I knew Tobias Sammet had said they'd play tracks from all their albums. As the date grew nearer I was more and more anxious and the only disappointment was that Jorn Lande wouldn't come, though Hartmann did an incredible job in his place.
    The same day of the show I found out my lil devil couldn't make it. …

  • Bonjovitasia - The Wicked Symphony

    29 Mar 2010, 21:23 by Enforceris

    Introduction
    Okay I'll try to be as objective as possible, however I can say for sure that I had no high hopes for this album. After a huge and poptastic fail of The Scarecrow, I don't know if I should hate Tobias or feel sad for him.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Avantasia - The Wicked Symphony
    Hard-rocky silly intro, then a few seconds of tobias impersonating Kamelot then a few seconds of epicness of R.Allen. then BonJovi Chorus. Repeat again. Cue random solo and random alternative instrumental.
    Rating: 4/10

    Avantasia - Wastelands
    Generic Power metal track used as filler material. Typical unimpressive lyrics and bland guitar work. Kiskes vocals don't sound as good as I hoped they would...It seems he lost all his power...
    Rating: 5/10

    Avantasia - Scales of Justice
    Quite a decent track. AWESOME, even, I would say. But don't be fooled yet. Its awesome because of vocalist, Tim "Ripper" Owens, who carries the song through the song alone. …
