* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Of the unintentional variety, Lavender. Tobias thought the word was pronounced laVENder and wrote the melody to fit that pronunciation. When Englishman Bob Catley was given the song to sing, he tried to correct it, but the melody was already set and the word couldn't really be fixed at that point.

Tobias Sammet's Avantasia is a PowerMetal "band" from Fulda, Germany, and the solo side-project of Music/{{Edguy}}'s Tobias Sammet started in 1999. All of Avantasia's albums are RockOperas and are currently split between three different stories: ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Metal Opera]]'', ''The Wicked Trilogy'' and ''The Mystery of Time''. Avantasia was named as a portmanteau of Avalon and Fantasia for the world that ''The Metal Opera'' takes place in. With some of the guests (including Music/AliceCooper and [[Music/{{Scorpions}} Klaus Meine]]) that appear on the albums, one might come to the conclusion that the project is more or less Sammet's way of showing off his connections if it weren't for the fact that the music is so [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome damn cool.]] Speaking of guest members, if you can think of a power metal vocalist, there's a very good chance that they've contributed to Avantasia.
