Ghostlights is the seventh full-length album by Tobias Sammet's German rock-opera project Avantasia, released in January 2016, via Nuclear Blast Records.

Avantasia is a German supergroup rock opera project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy. Ghostlights scored the highest positions of any Avantasia release in several european music charts and marks the second time Avantasia has entered the US Billboard 200 albums chart.

The opening track and single Mystery of a Blood Red Rose was released in December 2015, and the second single Draconian Love followed in May 2016. With Meatloaf in mind to lead the opening to this rock opera, Sammet wrote what would come third as a candidate for Germany's choice for Eurovision. Sadly, Meatloaf declined and Sammet layered his vocals to fill the void. Suprised at the Eurovision candidature he said of the track "Although 'Mystery Of A Blood Red Rose' is a rather short composition compared to most other Avantasia songs, I wanted to embellish and amplify it with flamboyance and all Avantasia trademarks."

The rock opera follow a continuous story, and later songs include The Haunting featuring the versatile Dee Snider, Master of the Pendulum led by Marco Hietala as the watchmaker, and many more tracks, featuring main-stay Michael Kiske and newly Bob Catley of Magnum.

Here are the first three songs off the album:  Mystery Of A Blood Red RoseLet The Storm Decend Upon You, and The Haunting.

This double album 2LP record se is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with an 8 page booklet, pressed in Germany.
