Vision Divine Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Vision Divine.
2012 has been a stunning year for new metal. In particular, the Italian scene has seen an explosion of quality material whether you talk about Luca Turilli's Rhapsody or Sound Storm and even those the world has not yet heard such as Wind Rose and Hollow Haze. The pressure was on for Vision Divine co-founder Olaf Thörsen (born Carlo Andrea Magnani).

II - A Midnight Autumn's Dream" upon his own return, he "set his destination" back to Vision Divine to dream up the new concept LP "Destination Set to Nowhere." With co-founder and Rhapsody of Fire vocalist Fabio Lione back in the fold since the 2009 release "9 Degrees West of the Moon," the dynamic duo returns with a seventh stunning progressive masterpiece (see Metal Underground.com's review at this location).
