Visions of Atlantis
« on: 06 June 2005, 09:18:06 »

Hello!

Just wanted to know if you know/like Visions of Atlanits, an Austrian symphonic metal band, which probably sounds somehow like the older Nightwish.

(Just curious because they are from Styria in Austria, where I live too.. :))

Link:

There you can get an full song and the video to that song.

Thanks!

I think, they're trying to be symhponic ... for me their music is too childish

Its decent but I'm not really impressed with the song "Lost" at all.  But it has a few good qualities that I'll look up some other songs in their discography.

I don't like that Nightwish / Lacuna Coil copy from Austria. The male voice is quite detuned and the female vocals aren't special. And in general, the instrumentation is quite "already thousand times heared before in better quality".
'Cuase of such bands, the whole scene suffers and good bands cannot become more successfull or new bands who are really worth to be heared stay without contract...

They got a new female singer and are working on a new album, which is going to be harder.... :)
Sounds not that bad... :)

I saw them last year together with Epica, it was quite boring, they have no charisma and they cannot entchant the audience at all.  The male singer has an Austrian accent.

And to the new singer: Souns a bit mean, but I don't think they deserve such an well-trained singer....

I LOVE THEM,THE SIGNER IS BETTER THAN NIGHTWISH'S AND THEY DO NOT COPY THEM

I think most people here hate them because they "copy" nightwish,but I think Nicole's voice is better then Tarja's,I love the music they do too,and that's enought(??) for me to love them :) .

Probably somes.. but they have a very kitschy sound.. not everyone likes that... Nightwish used Synthesizer not that much... or mixed it not that much in the front... the producer sucked a little bit the less 2 albums... but I hope the new album gets "perfect"... :)

I've only heard 'Lost', and that was a little too kitschy for my liking :P
If their new album is less kitschy, harder and with a better female singer and less/no more of that male singer (who sounds like somebody from a pop 'boyband' :rolleyes: ) then i would be interested in hearing it :)

Hm, I don't like them either. They sound like a one-to-one copy of Nightwish (and as u all might already know I'm not quite on listening terms with them :P :lol: )

No, it's not better than Tarja's voice, even if Tarja's voive is not that special either. And the male singer...no comment
