Drummer Raphael Saini of Italian metallers CHAOSWAVE will fill in for VISIONS OF ATLANTIS' Thomas Caser during the latter band's upcoming European tour as the support act for RHAPSODY OF FIRE. Raphael says, "I am really excited about this tour with VISIONS OF ATLANTIS. I can't wait to be on the road again!
"VISIONS OF ATLANTIS' music is really different from all the stuff I have been playing in the past, making the challenge even more fun. Thomas Caser's drumming is really interesting and I love to challenge myself and prove that I can fill in a lot of different musical situations."
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS' tour with RHAPSODY OF FIRE is scheduled to kick off on February 8 in Pratteln, Switzerland.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS will release its fourth album, "Delta", via Napalm Records on the following dates:
