Visions Of Atlantis

Visions of Atlantis is a symphonic-power metal band from Austria, founded in 2000. Fascinated by the myth of Atlantis, Werner Fiedler, Thomas Caser, Christian Stani, and Chris Kamper decided in August 2000 to work on a concept inspired by the secret of Atlantis. Late in summer mezzo-soprano Nicole Bogner joined the project, and this was the birth of Visions of Atlantis. In late 2005, Bogner left the band due to commitments elsewhere.

After Nicole left the band, she was replaced by American soprano singer Melissa Ferlaak and Wolfgang Koch replaced Werner Fiedler. In November 2007, a message was posted on the official VoA website saying that Melissa Ferlaak and Wolfgang Koch had left the band. In July 2009, the band announced the replacement vocalist, Maxi Nil from Greece. On January 6, 2012, Visions of Atlantis announced that former singer Nicole Bogner had died at the age of 27 after fighting a severe disease over a long period of time.

In December 2013, Visions of Atlantis announced that most of the line-up was parting ways with Visions of Atlantis, leaving the only remaining and founding member Thomas Caser on drums. Their latest album The Deep & The Dark was released in February 2018 and was recorded with Clémentine Delauney and Siegfried Samer on vocals who joined the band in 2013.
