It´s amazing to see what this guy is capable of – Tobias Sammet is certainly addicted to music. In the short time that he had in between tours with Edguy and gigs with Avantasia during the last two years, he still managed to find some extra energy to work on not one but two awesome new records. This duo pack, „The Wicked Symphony“ and „Angel of Babylon” right away went to number 7 in the official European charts and in Germany it even placed second, what a great achievement! No one can stop Sammet at the moment!

But actually it´s no surprise that this album is so successful because here you find mighty songs that all tell a story paired with ingenious guitar riffs and the best metal rock singers currently available. Large parts of the drums were recorded by none other than KISS drummer Eric Singer and ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick contributed some lead guitar parts. Sammet is vocally accompanied by a whole range of top class singer like Jon Oliva, Russell Allen, Michael Kiske, Bob Catley, Jorn Lande and Andre Matos. Thus, a breath-taking vocal performance is guaranteed. Of course, the song “Dying for an Angel” with Klaus Meine from the Scorpions is a hit and brings out the album best. Which of the two records is better? That´s impossible to say, so just get the duo pack and enjoy a very special metal opera. Have fun listening!
