Visions Of Atlantis - Former Singer Dies At Age 27


Austrian symphonic metal band Visions Of Atlantis has revealed the following update: "In deep mourning and with highest respect we have to notify all Visions Of Atlantis fans that our former female singer Nicole Bogner has passed away at the age of 27 after fighting a severe disease over a long period of time. The band is shocked about the loss of an old VoA-family member but wants to express sincere gratitude to Nicole not only for 5 years of sharing a musical Vision but also for more than a decade of friendship inside and outside of Visions Of Atlantis."

"Without Nicole, Visions Of Atlantis would have never been born and her unique voice and personality were a big part of VoA. With Nicole a great part of Visions Of Atlantis died as well. We will always treasure your warm hearted soul, you will never be forgotten Nici... All fans and followers are invited to join the In Memoriam Nicole Bogner-Page here on Facebook to express their grief and respect to this great artist and person! Rest in Peace Nicole and thank you!"

This year only just started.

Keep an eye on this regularly to get an idea of how much it all sucks.

They all die at 27...why is that? Although this one wasn't some sort of OD or freak rockstar related thing...

That's pretty unfortunate. I guess she's another one who has died at age 27. She was a good singer too. Rest in peace.

This is very sad news. Although the music of Visions of Atlantis never captivated me that much I always wondered what happened to Nicole Bogner because she was like Tarja's younger sister. She had all the prerequisites for becoming a renowned symphonic metal vocalist like Turunen. Sad that she wasn't discovered by any top class band after her departure from VoA. Damn... she could've even fronted Nightwish.

It just made me think, if she died at 27, you could die at 27. Imagine Metal Storm without Joe?

Holy shit! The ESB would be SLIGHTLY less active and the place would be marginally less cynical/critical.

I predict the site would go under in less than 3 months.

It is actually mathematically very unlikely that fewer metal performers die this year than the previous. The probability is much higher that way more people will die this year, so lets not act all surprised.

I have no idea, but it's scary to think about it. While we're young, we think we're immortal and that nothing can happen to us, and then, bam.

Yeah. At your age, I thought that I had all the time in the world and that bad luck happened only to other people but now, at almost 40, I feel as if I haven't seen the last 20 years because they passed so fast.
