Austrian symphonic metallers VISIONS OF ATLANTIS have tapped EMERGENCY GATE drummer Raphael Saini for their upcoming headlining shows in Cyprus and Greece in early November. Saini will be filling in for VOA's regular drummer Thomas Caser, who is unable to take part in the trek due to his job obligations with Napalm Records as head of A&R.
Saini previously performed with VISIONS OF ATLANTIS in 2011 during their tour with RHAPSODY OF FIRE.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS is putting the finishing touches on its fifth album, "Ethera", for an early 2013 release via Napalm Records.
Regarding the new album title, VISIONS OF ATLANTIS said, "'Ethera' is a word mix out of 'ether' as the quintessence of this band, the energy between the five band members, the fifth album and 'era,' leading VISIONS OF ATLANTIS to some new and interesting musical and lyrical shores while still remaining typically VISIONS OF ATLANTIS!"
Fabio D'Amore (SERENITY) and Ivan Moni Bidin, who is also a master at the mixing desk, produced this latest work.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS' "Maria Magdelena" EP was released last October.
