VISIONS OF ATLANTIS Part Ways With Singer, Announce Replacement
Austrian "epic metal" band VISIONS OF ATLANTIS have announced the departure of singer Nicole Bogner. "Due to the changes in her personal and professional life, Nicole Bogner and VISIONS OF ATLANTIS have decided to go separate ways from now on," the band write on their web site. "The split with the female singer happened in friendship, and VISIONS OF ATLANTIS want to thank Nicole for everthing she has done with and for the band."

"Melissa Ferlaak, 26 from Minneapolis , Minnesota , graduated with a master's degree from New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts in 2003 for vocal performance. She has worked in the operatic field, most recently as Musetta in 'La Boheme', and has been singing with AESMA DAEVA.
"New VISIONS OF ATLANTIS concerts are being scheduled at the moment, and the songwriting for the upcoming album is nearly finished!"
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS released their latest album, "Cast Away", last November through Napalm Records/SPV. The CD was recorded and mixed by Peter O. Moritz at Radwerk 14 Studios in Austria and was mastered by Ue Nastasi at Sterling Sound in New York City.
