Untamed as the seven seas, VISIONS OF ATLANTIS are set to release their anticipated and most honest studio album to date, Pirates, this Friday, May 13, via Napalm Records! Today, the band has released the majestic and energetic third single “Master The Hurricane” together with a stunning official video showing the international band in top shape once again!
The new single, “Master The Hurricane”, makes every symphonic metal enthusiast’s heart pound faster by managing to combine what makes VISIONS OF ATLANTIS so strong in 2022 in more than seven minutes of runtime. Singers Clémentine Delauney and Michele Guaitoli show the full range of their skills from soft and calm tones, over staccato sung parts and rough tones to a bombastic chorus that makes the listener dive deep into the new world of the band. The well elaborated and beautifully pointed guitar and drum lines make this song another hymn in the strong discography of VISIONS OF ATLANTIS. The overall drums impress with a natural sound, while FEUERSCHWANZ’s Ben Metzner adds a special touch to the song with his flute playing.
With their eighth full-length, VISIONS OF ATLANTIS deliver their most confident and honest record so far, proving that they have definitely stopped wandering to finally unleash their rebellious side and a free spirit as untamed as the seven seas.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS on Pirates: “Being a Pirate to us is being fully aware and having our lives in our own hands, living and thinking freely, embracing life as an adventure with all its light and darkness. With the new album we are opening a new era for VISIONS OF ATLANTIS, fully embracing the identity we have been flirting with for several years now – making the music that truly resonates with our souls. We continue our journey taking us through darker waters, heavier storms, where all serves as background for a metaphor about personal growth and spirituality. If Wanderers was more about the bright side of our path, Pirates definitely takes us deeply into shadow work, where we are facing other kinds of monsters along the way!”
