Five years in the making, the third installment of Timo Tolkki s Avalon, the outstanding metal opera which saw the return of the highly talented Finnish musician to the heavy metal scene, is ready for release. "Return To Eden" took a few years to be completed as Tolkki had to battle his personal demons during the process. He enlisted the outside help of Aldo Lonobile of Italian power/prog metal masters Secret Sphere, who co-produced the album and helped him with the recording of the various musicians who guest on the album. The result is convincing, inspired and stronger than ever. Tolkki resumed the work for the third album with the concept of developing the sound and the music in an even more grandiose and metallic mood, bringing back the emotions and highs of the classic Stratovarius years. The amazing vocal cast appearing this time includes renowned Dutch singer Anneke Van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering), Zak Stevens (ex-Savatage), Todd Michael Hall (Riot V), Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania, Ardours), and Eduard Hovinga (ex-Elegy).

Inimitable singer Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob) and acclaimed Swedish guitarist, songwriter, and producer Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall) have collaborated successfully on three critically acclaimed albums where Russell dueted with Norwegian singer, Jorn Lande. After a break in their collaboration on said albums, where Timo Tolkki stepped in and oversaw an album, Magnus has returned to the fold, but with an exciting new twist to the formula. This time, Russell and Magnus welcome none other than the amazingly talented Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish, The Dark Element) to the fold as Allen’s vocal partner and offer up an unbelievable new duets album.

Archon Angel is a new band project born from a meeting between producer/guitar player Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere) and former Savatage and Circle II Circle vocalist Zak Stevens. Aldo submitted to Zak some song ideas which were reminiscent of the classic Savatage records, the two felt the magic was there, and Archon Angel was born. With songwriting and production courtesy of Aldo, Archon Angel sees Zak Stevens return to the classic Savatage sound with a particularly strong and inspired release which is going to bring listeners back to the days of classic albums such as “Gutter Ballet”, “Handful of Rain,” and “Dead Winter Dead”. Look for the band to make their first live appearance at the popular 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise in January 2020.
