Frontiers Records has revealed all about Timo Tolkki's Avalon's new album. We already knew the guest musicians that will appear on his second album Angels Of The Apocalypse. Now we get to see the cover artwork and much more. Mark your calendars for a release on May 16th in Europe and May 20th in North America. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.

In August 2013, Tolkki flew to Greece to seek the right inspiration for the follow-up album. He says: "In August 2012 I planned to release a Metal Opera that had to be a trilogy. I am following a specific storyboard in a musical format and this time the musical direction is heavier and darker than the previous Avalon. This was deliberate since the Apocalyptic scenes described in the lyrics demanded that."

Once again the artwork is provided by the French artist Stanis W. Decker and the first pressing of the physical edition will be available in a glossy digipak.

Final tracklist:

01. Song For Eden
02. Jerusalem Is Falling
03. Design The Century
04. Rise Of The 4th Reich
05. Stargate Atlantis
06. You'll Bleed Forever
07. The Paradise Lost
08. Neon Sirens
09. High Above Of Me
10. Angels Of The Apocalypse
11. Garden Of Eden

The first single "Design The Century" (featuring Nightwish singer Floor Jansen) will be released digitally worldwide on April 7th.

I kinda like the artwork , it's the usual fantasy type but it looks good. wasn't a fan of the debut , but I will check this one out.

Well, it says will be "heavier". We hope so, cause the debut was as bland as the first RR album. I hope at least something like the third RR one (this one was nice).
