Austrian symphonic metallers VISIONS OF ATLANTIS have officially launched a search for a new female singer. The band says, "If you feel like having the talent, commitment and dedication for joining VISIONS OF ATLANTIS, please send a demo of your vocal abilities and 2-3 pictures to this e-mail address: [email protected] We look forward to receiving your submissions and really hope to find a new singer soon!"
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS recently parted ways with the group's Minnesota-based vocalist, Melissa Ferlaak, and her boyfriend, guitarist Wolfgang "Wops" Koch, due to "musical differences." As a result, the band's previously announced participation in the upcoming KAMELOT European tour has been cancelled. Koch has since been replaced by the returning guitarist Werner Fiedler, who was responsible for much of the songwriting on the group's first two records.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS's latest album, "Trinity", was released in May via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded at Dreamscape Studios and was mastered at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland. The CD's cover artwork was created by Anthony Clarkson, who has previously worked with BLIND GUARDIAN, HYPOCRISY and EXODUS, among others.
