April 12 — Power metal band Visions of Atlantis debuted the latest single and video from its forthcoming album this week.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Melancholy Angel’ and its companion video Tuesday. The song and its video are the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Pirates, which is scheduled for release May 13 through Napalm Records. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘Legion of the Seas’ and its video March 7.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Melancholy Angel’ is another familiar power metal opus from the band that the group’s fans will find appealing. In comparison to its predecessor, this single is more of a mid-tempo composition and leans more heavily on its string arrangements than that song. What’s more, the song’s mood is more contemplative in nature than ‘Legion of the Seas.’
No information about the song’s lyrical theme was provided in the press release announcing the debut of the new single and video. No lyrics are provided with the video, either.
The video finds the band, still in full pirate regalia, on a beach at night, campfire blaring. The group is performing its new single against the backdrop as the song plays over the visualization.
