Avantasia, ‘Dying for an Angel’ (With Scorpions’ Klaus Meine) — New Song

Epic German metal band Avantasia recruited Scorpions vocalist Klaus Meine to perform guest vocals to the song ‘Dying for an Angel’ from the band’s new album ‘The Wicked Symphony,’ which comes out May 4. A shortened version of the track can be streamed on frontman Tobias Sammet’s Web site. The track features Sammet’s vocals and bass, Sascha Paeth on guitars and Kiss drummer Eric Singer hitting the skins.

‘The Wicked Symphony’ will be one of two new Avantasia albums. The other, ‘Angel of Babylon,’ a digital-only release, is also available May 4.

“I have always given my very best, but this new chapter in Avantasia’s history too ambitious to be just a regular album,” Sammet said. “I knew the story would be spread out over two albums when we started working on it in 2006, ’cause we had written a real rock opera of over 20 songs even back then. [This] may be the last big epic I will be able to afford, and I want it to be the biggest piece I have worked on so far.”

In addition to Meine and Singer, the two albums feature other major guest stars, including Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween), Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (ex-Judas Priest), Jon Oliva (Savatage), Bob Catley (Magnum), Jorn Lande (Masterplan), Russell Allen (Symphony X), Jens Johansson (ex-Dio, Stratovarius), Andre Matos (ex-Angra), Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss, ex-Meat Loaf) and more.
