VISIONS OF ATLANTIS

New live album, "Pirates Over Wacken", out on March 31st!

 2023 is going to be a huge year for VISIONS OF ATLANTIS! As they excited fans with their recent release Pirates, the symphonic metal icons are now doubling down on the special experiences. Along with an extensive tour throughout the USA and Europe last year, the symphonic metal visionaries captured the new era of VISIONS OF ATLANTIS as pirates for the fans at the legendary Wacken Open Air in summer 2022 - now available as their third live release, Pirates Over Wacken, via Napalm Records.

 VISIONS OF ATLANTIS on Pirates Over Wacken:
 "There is something purely magical about WACKEN. Maybe it is the collective belief that this is the Holy Ground of Heavy Metal. Maybe it simply is, the Holy Ground of Heavy Metal. Maybe this casts a specific energy around the stages and the fields of this special German town.
 We didn’t miss to feel this magic, while shouting the name “WACKEN" out loud on stage or while looking around and seeing thousands of people, at peace, loving being there and sharing this together.
 It was very special to us again, as if it wasn’t our first time playing WACKEN. We got overcome with emotion several times during the show. There was so much we wanted to say. We felt empowered as a artists and human beings. WACKEN is ones of these grounds where you feel you can change the world. Watching this crowd and talking to them on that very day felt like never before and we will remember it forever.
 Nothing lasts forever but memories do. Thank you WACKEN for having made us a part of your legend.”

 Free as the seven untamed seas, the symphonic metal outfit unleashed their rebellious side with Pirates and delivered their most confident and honest record so far. During their voyage, they played an extensive tour in the USA supporting Dragonforce, and headlined in Europe, selling out several venues as well as multiple festival shows – making for the perfect time to capture their chart-storming album at Wacken Open Air in summer 2022.
 Featuring songs from Pirates as well as fan favorites like “A Life Of Our Own”, “The Silent Mutiny” and “A Journey to Remember”, VISIONS OF ATLANTIS bewitched the enthusiastic audience with their new set of eleven tracks embracing freedom and self-confidence. The multinational band kicks the performance off with their majestic single from Pirates, “Master The Hurricane”. Through its perfectly balanced mixture of dramatic choirs, heavy orchestration and dedicated vocals, the multi-million streamed hit “Heroes Of The Dawn” and Pirates album opener “Pirates Will Return” provide sing-a-long opportunities for listeners to get lost in. Guiding fans through their powerful discography, the intriguing soundscapes and hauntingly beautiful melodies will take you back to an unforgettable day at Wacken Open Air. VISIONS OF ATLANTIS wrap up the feverishly hot concert with their last hit single, “Melancholy Angel”, and “Legion Of The Seas” - presenting their heaviest side without losing their inimitable feeling for creating dreamlike symphonic melodies. This emotive eleven track experience will have you tasting the heat and dust of the palpable Wacken festival air, and embracing the wilderness that only true Pirates know! Pirates Over Wacken is a perfect taste of what lies ahead for VISIONS OF ATLANTIS with long lasting tours through Europe and the US!
