Promised Land Interviews Oliver Hartmann
Promised Land interviewed Oliver Hartmann, singer and guitar player that has been taken part on Avantasia's project since The Metal Opera I. The questions were sent by PL's members.
On the interview he talks about his relationship with Tobias Sammet, his participation on the new albums and a forthcoming tour.



Check a small piece of it:

"Promised Land: So, first of all, thanks for the interview, Oliver. Let's start talking about Avantasia that has 2 albums coming soon (in which you are a guest). You have such a good relationship with Tobias, don't you? I mean, you've been part of Avantasia since "The Metal Opera Pt I" and recently he has sung a song on your new solo album... Tell us a little bit how you guys get along. Have you ever thought about playing together on another project or even on a band of yours?

Oliver Hartmann: We know each other for 10 years now and since the time when he asked me to participate on the first part of Avantasia - where none of us all could imagine how big and successful this project would grow- I can say that our relationship really turned into a great friendship. Tobias is a very funny guy that you can always have a laugh with but besides all that he's definitely a really reliable person what for sure is hard to find in this kind of business. I was happy to have him as guest singer for the track "Brothers" on the new Hartmann album "3" and he really did an outstanding job. When I started to make up my mind about a fitting vocalist for this song Tobias came into my mind straight away since his voice was absolutely perfect for this role. We never really talked about doing another band or project together and due to his work for Avantasia and his main band Edguy I don't think that there'd be any more time left for another side project. But let's see what the future brings."

Promised Land interviews Michael Kiske
Promised Land - Avantasia's Fan Club has recently managed to interview the legendary German singer Michael Kiske (Unisonic; ex-Helloween).



On the interview, Michi talks a bit about Avantasia, but also about his projects for 2010 and thoughts of his own.
Check out some pieces of it below:

"Promised Land: Which Avantasia's album do you like the most? Is there any song that sounds like your own music, I mean, something that you would include in a CD of yours?

Kiske:
I really like LOST IN SPACE. Unfortunately my version never ended up on the album. But that's a song that really meets my taste. But I have a huge range of music that I like and understand!

[...]

Promised Land:
Who had chosen the name Unisonic and why?

Kiske:
It took a while to find a good name! [...] It was build out of UNISON and SONIC [...]

[...]

Promised Land:
And how about Unisonic's tour? Don't you feel afraid the fans may be waiting for that Kiske of 16 years ago on stage? How are you dealing with this kind of uncertainty?

Kiske:
That's a good question. The answer is: I mainly ignore it. [...] I will be and do how I feel that day when we play, that's it. I am not the same person anymore anyway. [...]"
