A Paranormal Evening With The Moonflower Society is the ninth studio album by Tobias Sammet's German metal opera project Avantasia, released in October 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Avantasia is a German supergroup rock opera project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy.

With his ninth album, “A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society”, Tobias Sammet invites you to join him on an enchanted journey into his own version of reality, which is full of fantastic events and encounters.

It is a captivating, deeply magical universe that Tobias Sammet has built over the past two decades. Since his debut “The Metal Opera” (2001), the Peter Pan of international rock and metal has romped between metal, classical and rock, beguiling the biggest festivals around the world with his traveling circus and working with the greatest voices in the metal world including Alice Cooper and Scorpions’ Klaus Meine.

The reward for his passionate work and years on the road: number one in the German album charts for the latest record “Moonglow” (2019), more than three million albums sold, over 250 million streams, sold-out world tours, and a fan base that listens to him live and in front of the home speakers with excitement and enthusiasm.

Sometimes Tobias Sammet, also renowned for being singer, producer and songwriter in EDGUY, cannot quite believe it all himself. “My whole life is based on childish ideas and dreams, which amazingly I still get away with,” he says incredulously. “Even after 30 years, music is my favourite, biggest, only hobby. And the fact that I can make a living from it fills me with deep gratitude.”

But of course he also does a lot for it. The construction of a new studio, for example - an investment that proves to be a pandemic stroke of luck in 2020: In his new realm, Sammet could indulge in his art while ignoring the world outside. “I was faced with more time than ever before,” he looks back. “So I was paying as much attention to details and little things as I had in my early years. On the last records, I outsourced certain things to my producer Sascha Paeth, mostly just to save time. However, now I didn’t have to save time. There hasn’t been a record that sounded so much like me.”

Tinkering with sounds for nights, writing parts for his duet partners, arranging and singing the choirs himself - on “A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society” Sammet is not only impresario, conductor and musician, he also handles a majority of the vocals, and presents himself at the top of his game.

This double album 2LP record set is a limited edition of 3500 copies on moonstone coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a printed insert, pressed in Germany via Nuclear Blast.
