VISIONS OF ATLANTIS Nominated for Austrian Amadeus Awards


Symphonic metal pirates VISIONS OF ATLANTIS are nominated for Amadeus Austrian Music Awards – Austria’s biggest and most important prize for national bands and artists – in the category “Hard’n’Heavy.” The event will take place on April 28, 2023, in the Volkstheater in Vienna, and will be broadcast on Austrian public television channel ORF1. Fans can support the band by voting in the awards’ online poll, which can be found HERE.
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 the summer of 2022 – now available as their third live release, “Pirates Over Wacken,” out March 31, 2023, via Napalm Records.


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 the summer of 2022.
