Visions of Atlantis - 'Legion Of The Seas' (official video)

Take the chart
Make a mark
Not a day where I won't listen to my heart
Sail away, sail away

Stay the course
To the source
Not a day that I will have end in remorse
Not today, not today

The journey's now or never
Embrace your soul forever
You feel alive when cresting the waves
Just get yourself together
The crying times are over
And show the world the fine edge of your blade

Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We've conquered all the waters with our fleet
Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We subjugate the free world at our feet

Dominus Hominum

See the shore
Getting close
Another day we're meant to do what we adore
And again, and again

Hear the chant
Calling us
It's a siren, listening is too dangerous
Run away, run away, run away

It must feel so heavy now
So close your eyes again

Lost my innocence along the way
(I will show you how)
All I want: no game, no lies, no pain
(To win the hearts of men)

Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We've conquered all the waters with our fleet
Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We subjugate the free world at our feet

Come weary heart, take my hand
I am the one who will take you back
To the sand
Of your lost wonderland

Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We've conquered all the waters with our fleet
Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas
We subjugate the free world at our feet

Born to be free
We're the legion of the seas

Ο δίσκος των Visions of Atlantis 'Pirates'
Δελτίο τύπου: «With their latest chart-topping studio album, Wanderers (2019), and the recent release of their first ever live BluRay/DVD, A Symphonic Journey To Remember, symphonic metal visionaries Visions of Atlantis have, without a doubt, proven that they are on top of the scene.

Now, the band sets sail on another adventurous journey and new exciting chapter, marking a turning point in their discography with the upcoming album, Pirates, out May 13, 2022 via Napalm Records. 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 untamed as the seven seas.

The band invites its listeners to join them on a marvelous ride through intriguing soundscapes and hauntingly beautiful melodies along with smashing symphonic heaviness, that musically and lyrically embodies a form of transition and self-discovery:

We embrace who we are and we can state it in the eyes of everyone that we are Pirates now - we have always been, but now we are confident in our identity and we want to show it to the world”, states vocalist Clémentine Delauney. The new offering boldly opens the door to not only the light parts in life but its lurking with darker aspects as well. “This is actually the process I have been through myself. I’ve been doing a lot of shadow work where you get to know and embrace the dark side of yourself - which is just another part of you.

With a team consisting of Clémentine herself, vocalist Michele Guaitoli and producer Felix Heldt, Visions of Atlantis managed to secure a firm writing crew and shift their musical identity to braver structures and a new world that is way more complex - something that will be the new trademarks of the band.

The album pulls the anchor with the epic opener “Pirates Will Return”, which instantly enchants with its hymnlike chorus and showcases the high-class versatility from the very first second.

In the blink of an eye, Visions of Atlantis manage to create their very own incomparable universe of symphonic epicness, intense riffing and, above all, the impressive vocal symbiosis of Clémentine Delauney and Michele Guaitoli.

Delauney’s bewitching offerings oscillate between clear vocals, powerful belting and operatic techniques, whereas matchless counterpart Guaitoli adds spice with top-notch power metal infusions.

Pirates presses ahead with catchy hook lines, like in mighty ”Melancholy Angel”, rousing “Clocks”, charging “Wild Elysium” and majestic “Master The Hurricane” - the latter of which will make every symphonic metal enthusiast’s heart pound faster through its perfectly balanced mixture of dramatic choirs, heavy orchestration and dedicated vocals.

With “Legion Of The Seas” Visions of Atlantis present their heaviest side so far without losing their inimitable feeling for creating dreamlike symphonic melodies. Gentle ballads “Freedom” and “Heal The Scars” immediately evoke goosebumps as the band showcases both a deep emotional facet embodying strength, as well as a common bond.

Pirates reaches the harbor for now with mesmerizing “I Will Be Gone”, building up a dramatic wall of sound accented by harmonizing flutes and bagpipes, delivered by no less than Feuerschwanz virtuoso Ben Metzner, who joins also on “In My World”, “Master the Hurricane” and “Heal The Scars”.

This emotive twelve track experience truly allows you to taste the salt of the sea in the air, feel the wind on your skin and embrace the wilderness that only Pirates can feel. “Embracing freedom, going the uncommon way, ruling our world - no limits to what we can think of, believe and explore. We finally know where we are going, which after wandering totally makes sense!”»

Visions of Atlantis (about the song): «Legion of The Seas” is a statement song that embodies the mindset we carry throughout the entire record. No matter what we are facing, we remain the masters of ourselves and our lives.

We are delighted to welcome the listeners on board of this new age of Visions of Atlantis with this powerful video, for one of the heaviest songs of the record. Acting scenes meet a fiery band performance, all in a very cinematic way, conveying our universe the best way.»
