Vision Divine

Vision Divine was originally slated as a side project for then-Labyrinth guitarist Carlo Magnani (aka Olaf Thorsen), he soon pairing up with old friend and vocalist Fabio Leone, himself once a member of Labyrinth. By the time the band was ready to record, two more Labyrinth members had joined up, making the band practically Labyrinth Part 2. As the band progressed, though, Thorsen wished to stop the "they're just a side project" comments, and so he left Labyrinth to devote his full time to Vision Divine (coincidentally or not, the two other Labyrinth guys soon left this band to go back to their main gig). Now a full-time band with its own identity, Vision Divine has recorded four albums thus far, firmly rooted in the classic Euro melodic power metal tradition, with faint symphonic touches here and there, and Leone (since departed) contributing typically clear, melodic vocals.

Recent album: When All The Heroes Are Dead, released on October 25, 2019.
