VISIONS OF ATLANTIS veröffentlichten ihre neueste EP „Old Routes – New Waters“  im April bei Napalm Records . In neuer Formation schufen die Österreicher ein Werk voller Romantik, mystischem Flair und Symphonic Power Metal vom Feinsten.

Stimmgewaltig und kraftvoll, wie man es von ihnen seit Jahren, genauer seit ihrer Gründung zur Jahrtausendwende gewohnt ist, präsentieren sich die Symphonic Power Metaller aus dem schönen kleinen Land Österreich auch bei ihrer neuen EP „Old Routes – New Waters“. Auch mit völlig neuer Besetzung hat die Band nichts an Kraft, Melodienreichtum und Bombastik eingebüßt. Nun warten wir bereits sehnsüchtig auf das Album, das der EP folgen soll.

2013 blähte ein kräftiger, frischer Wind die Segel bei Visions Of Atlantis auf. Als einziges verbliebenes Gründungsmitglied wirbelte Drummer Thomas Caser das Line-Up des österreichischen Schoners kräftig auf und heuerte Siegfried Samer und Clémentine Delauney als Traum-Duo am Mikrofon an.

Daraufhin schlossen sich auch Chris Kamper, Werner Fiedler und Mike Koren sich wieder der Band an. Das erklärte Ziel der neu erstarkten Symphonic Power Metal-Bastion war und ist es, wieder an den glorreichen Sound der ersten drei Alben Eternal Endless Infinity, Cast Away und Trinity anzuknüpfen!

Als Vorbote eines neuen Studioalbums wurde nun die EP Old Routes – New Waters veröffentlicht. Hierfür wurden Band-Klassiker komplett neu eingespielt, gemixt und gemastered. Ein aufregender Ausblick auf neue Ufer, die Großes für die Seebären versprechen…

Zum Track “Winternight“ könnt ihr hier ein Video auf YouTube sehen.

Biografie auf der Facebookseite von Visions of Atlantis

Welcome to a world of myths, tales and the long forgotten seas…Fascinated by the myths surrounding legendary Atlantis, the band Visions of Atlantis was formed in 2000. After completing their first demo CD, it took less than a year before the band found a label in Black Arrows/TTS. The company released the first full-length album, “Eternal Endless Infinity“, in Europe and later worldwide.

Fueled by the positive feedback, the band not only toured with bands like Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, or Edenbridge but also played at festivals across Europe, Latin America and Asia, including the Busan Rock Festivals in front of more than 20,000 spectators. In the summer of 2003, singer Mario Plank joined Visions of Atlantis and became an important part in the characteristic VoA sound with his heavier, yet still very melodic vocal style. Furthermore, the band signed a recording deal with the well-known Austrian label Napalm Records, which released the band’s second studio effort ”Cast Away“ worldwide in November 2004.

To mark the release, Visions of Atlantis produced their first official music video to the track “Lost“, which received significant airplay on VIVA and MTV, and made it possible for the band to present the album on their first European tour alongside Epica.

In 2005 and 2006, Visions of Atlantis worked hard on new material and played gigs with the likes of Elis, Nightwish, and Edenbridge. In May 2007, the third album “Trinity“ was released by Napalm Records. The artwork was designed by the renowned Anthony Clarksson, who had already made himself a name in the metal-scene by working for Exodus and Blind Guardian, among others.

The following autumn brought Visions of Atlantis to the United States, where the band toured together with Epica for 6 weeks and won numerous new fans. Upon returning, the band went through changes in the line-up.

The remaining members continued their work and in 2008 and 2009, Visions of Atlantis not only looked for a replacement for Melissa Ferlaak (ex-Aesma Daeva, Echoterra), but also wrote the song material for the fourth album “Delta“, which was released worldwide via Napalm Records at the end of February 2011, followed by immense touring activities (European tour together with Rhapsody of Fire, playing all big festivals like Wacken, Masters of Rock and more) throughout 2011.

In November 2011 the band released the Maria Magdalena EP, which offered 5 brand-new songs, as well as one re-recording. Visions of Atlantis empowers the opening track, an epic symphonic version of Sandra’s „Maria Magdalena“, while capturing the original spirit of the ’80s hit. „Maria Magdalena“ presented yet another side to Visions of Atlantis‘ magical creative spectrum and certainly influenced the band’s future journey, which directly led to writing new songs for the 5th full-length album „Ethera“ which was written and produced during 2012 and released in spring 2013 worldwide via Napalm Records/Universal.

The mystical title Ethera stands for an extraordinary and diverse Symphonic Metal masterpiece and presents the listeners with bombastic orchestral tracks as well as touching and dreamy ballads. Ethera is a mythical and bombastic journey into the heart of Atlantis.
