One of the most special moments in my life was the Live prog festival, which was held in June, 2011, at Lakei, Helmond (The Netherlands). And especially the fact that the Cuban progressive rockband Anima Mundi made their Dutch debut on that festival.
With the help of John Vis, Meriam Verkleij and the guys of Sky Architect, this performance was captured on camera and transformed into a unique document of this event. The very first live DVD and even live release ever, of Anima Mundi. And the magic of this phenomenal band was captured for you now to enjoy to your hearts desire.
This was the last video review I made in 2012. Here's to a musical 2013!Read more: Anima Mundi - Live in Europe

In 1999, Edguy vocalist Tobias Sammet released his own project, Avantasia. A large scale metal opera, with many well-known guest musicians and singers. So far, it was a studio based project. But renowned producer/composre/guitarist Sascha Paeth suggested Tobias to take Avantasia to the stage.
And so it happened. In 2008, at two big metal festivals in Germany and Czech Republic, Avantasia rocked thousands of people at an awesome show. With guests like Jorn Lande, Andre Matos, Amanda Sommerville, Bob Catley and many more, this is an amazing document of the raw live power of Avantasia!Read more: Avantasia - The Flying Opera
