1. Product Details

Limited double color vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Digitally remastered edition of this 2001 album. The Metal Opera is the first full-length album by Tobias Sammets supergroup project Avantasia. It is a concept album and a rock opera. Avantasia is a German supergroup rock opera project created by Tobias Sammet vocalist of the band Edguy. It has been characterized as a rock opera as it features the contributions of various vocalists and musicians and it consists of concept albums. The name is a portmanteau of the words avalon and fantasia fantasy and describes a world beyond human imagination. In Spring 1999 during Edguys Theater of Salvation tour Tobias Sammet began to outline his ideas for a metal opera concept album featuring a number of guest musicians. When the tour finished he began collaborating with metal vocalists to record the project. At this stage the core band consisted of four members Sammet on keyboards Henjo Richter on guitar Markus Grosskopf on bass and Alex Holzwarth on drums. In 2001 a self-titled single and the first full-length album The Metal Opera were released. The project went on hiatus after the release of The Metal Opera Part II in September 2002.
