Visions Of Atlantis - Bassist Leaves The Band

Austrian symphonic metallers Visions Of Atlantis have posted the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Hey Guys and Girls!

After 2 months without any message from the band here are some news wich may interest you.

First the most important thing: Our bassist Mike and his girlfriend will become parents very soon and we all want to wish them the best with their little rocker. But that leads directly to some bad news: Mike will leave the band and will take a baby-break from music so that he can focus on his new role as father a 100%.

We all understand his decison completely and so we had a last big party last weekend where we played a little gig with a handful of invited close friends to release Mike in his baby-break. If and when he will return to the band is completely unsure at the moment which is also clear and we (the whole Visions Of Atlantis family) hope that you out there will understand Mike and also wish him the best!

This will have no affect on the recording process for our forthcoming album, which leads me to the next hot news: Maxi Nil does a great job in singing in the stuff for pre-production and except some very little stuff and some last guitar details finally everything is recorded now and in November we'll enter the studio to record our fourth album finally.

Very soon we will announce the studio for our new recording and we also got a name for our fourth album, but this is still secret and just no secret within the band.

As soon as there are news and details about studio in November and all other things concering the band and what's going on with Visions Of Atlantis we'll be back with a new blog...

So stay tuned, because when we're in studio we'll keep you informed by every possible ways (video, studio-diary, pics, etc...) directly from the band.

Best wishes, and as promised... 2010 will be the year for Visions Of Atlantis as everything seems to turn out good finally!"

Another lineup change? hm...
So behold the flight of the sapphire dragon
soaring through the skies once again

No. No, it hasn't. Never had.
The silent moment, right before the dusk fades away
I open my eyes, but the darkness stays

Best of luck to everyone involved. This band has had a lot of line-up changes recently, though. They're a pretty cool band, and I hope everything works out.

Indeed several line-up changes during the latest years, but the reason of this leave is easily understandable.

They had a BIG future after "Trinity" but when Wolfgang and Melissa left, now they will back to their weak songs again...
there is nothing left to die for...
