Tobias Sammet comments on ‘The Moonflower Society‘:
A moonflower is a creature of the night that blossoms when the world is asleep. For me, it stands on one hand for the weird characters I populate my songs with, and on the other hand for the weird characters I surround myself with in AVANTASIA. Just let yourself fall into a wonderful, mysterious journey“.

A Paranormal Evening with the Moonflower Society is presenting eleven magical and powerful songs featuring numerous prestigious guest stars. An adventure that captivates the audience with freshness, briskness, sophistication and enchantment.

The album was produced by Tobias Sammet with AVANTASIA guitar player Sascha Paeth.

The fantastic cover art was created by Swedish illustrator Alexander Jansson.
