God, Felipe Machado is such a bad artist. His art looks like it was made by a college freshman who just discovered that blending modes exist in Photoshop.

That documentary would have been cool though.

Not sure if this could qualify as a Blind Guardian myth or something but Tobias Sammet (yesterday I think) officially confirmed that Hansi will be featured on the upcoming Avantasia album. FINALLY! After many years of speculation and guessing as to when it's going to happen, there - it did happen eventually! So we'll get at least one more song with Hansi in early 2019!

It's also confirmed via Avantasia's Facebook page so it can't be a joke at this point. :wink: And apparently there are even several songs on the record that feature Hansi that "show his variety, slow and epic moments, and fast high screams. Everything." Sounds promising!

Also, Traveller in Time, congratulations on post #1000!

Thanks!
yeah cool. Beat that Hansi! ;-)


I remember when Tobi was going to meet Hansi for a german TV morning show with Doro as guest as well and i wrote him that he should take the chance to ask Hansi to join him on Avantasia. And he answered that he will ask him :mrgreen:
Hansi was always on his whish list. Glad that finally Hansi had time to do this! because as far as i know it were always time issues like with Demons and Wizards
