Latest reviews

This album features Hansi Kürsch.   Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
Over the last few albums, Avantasia have softened and smoothed out - matured, perhaps - and they arrive in Ghostlights a much different beast from the brash power project born the better part of two decades ago. Modern Avantasia sounds more "symphonic rock musical" than "metal opera." No harm done, though - it's only different, not worse.   Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
