Hi all,

Once again I'm here writing the latest news I've got a couple of days ago.

First of all thanks for your answer under my previous topic, it's nice to see a little of activity in this forum.
Second, I would like to apologize, I know I'm not the kind of guy always online.

About the topic itself:

Timo Tolkki itself, a couple of weeks ago, started to use his social media a lot more compared to the last 2/3 years.
At first I was happy but, after a couple of second, I remembered the last tour with Mike Livas and his embarrassing voice and I started to be worried about another tour with this "YouTuber" kind of singers.

After a week or so I heard a whisper by some friends near to Tolkki: he is in touch with Frontiers, once again, to produce the last chapter of the Avalon franchise.
I asked them about some details but Tolkki itself want to keep the secret along with Serafino Perugino, the head of the label.
Two days ago Tolkki decided to post the news: he'll going to release the last chapter on June 2019 and, if Frontiers agrees, there will be a tour.
No details given about guests and so on, only the title: Return to Eden.

Any guess? Idea? Thought?


Let me know!

If he does what he did in the first one I'll be happy.

Whatever he does, I'll be happy. I was really worried while there was no sign of him last year.

TIMO TOLKKI'S AVALON will release its new album, "Return To Eden", on June 14 via Frontiers Music Srl. Guests on the disc include Todd Michael Hall (RIOT V), Mariangela Demurtas (TRISTANIA), Zachary Stevens (SAVATAGE), Anneke Van Giersbergen (THE GATHERING) and Eduard Hovinga (ELEGY).


Guess I was wrong, I think this line up is lacking a bit of power.

Awesome! I missed hearing TT's rhythm. I don't think this album will disappoint. Razz

Hi all,

First single out: https://youtu.be/rzsW2rYH42c

Do you belive is Timo on the guitar? Actually I can clearly hear his touch on the rhythmic part and, of course, by the tone is him on the soloing part too but...
Stange pattern and composition for Tolkki (he is more into linear picking, legato and tapping, weird to hear some sweep picking instead), is more in the style third RR album, the one with Santtu Lehnitieimi on the guitar (or at least rumored to be).
Since the guy was on tour with him as a bassist during the "best of" tour of a couple of years ago, I was wondering if Tolkki will be only composer and producer giving up as guitarist, but we will know by the credits and I really hope is him fully restored.

Anyway good song, good melodies (although really catchy, but this is the single) and nice solo too, different is the right word.

Timo is finally back and I'm hoping for a European tour!


I want to greet him Smile

Checked today the videoclip of the song, as imagined is not Timo on the guitar but, as reported on Blabbermouth and the videoclip itself, Aldo Lonobile and Santtu Lehnitiemi will be "additional guitar" while Tolkki will be "solo guitar" and "bass".

I belive this time is not him on the guitar, unfortunately, I hope he will be ready for the shows and tour, I want to see him able to play like he used to be.

Anyway, once again, good song with Glory of the World vibe on it Smile

I´m surprised by how much I like this new tune, but also this seems to be a project put together by the label with a bunch of external songwriters aside from TT.

and isn´t Santtu Lehtiniemi the guy who supposedly did all guitars way back on the RR trinity album , I kind of remember all that drama.
