The seventh full-length studio album by legendary Symphonic Power Metal project.
In 2014, Tobias Sammet stated that "The Mystery Of Time" hinted at a sequel and the details to that sequel were announced in November 2015. Unlike "The Wicked Trilogy", which spawned three different albums, "Ghostlights" concludes the plot started on the previous album, "The Mystery Of Time". Musically, it shows a more theatrical tone than its predecessor, which Sammet claims to have been spontaneous, not planned. "Ghostlights" heavier, more mysterious and darker than the previous album. It have no musical limits and all guest singers harmonized well with Sammet's vocals (Dee Snider, Geoff Tate, Jorn Lande, Ronnie Atkins, Marco Hietala, Sharon Den Adel, Michael Kiske, Bob Catley, Bruce Kulick, and others).
The opening track and first single "Mystery of a Blood Red Rose" was a candidate for the German representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, along with nine other songs.
"Ghostlights" scored the highest positions of any Avantasia release in several international music charts and marks the second time Avantasia has entered the US Billboard 200 albums chart.
"Ghostlights" came partially close to Avantasia's early releases like "The Metal Opera" and "The Metal Opera Part II", as well as early Edguy albums, and without a doubths one of Avantasia's strongest releases to date!!
The album signed in loving memory of Tobias Sammet's father, Ernst Sammet, who died on December 21, 2013.
