Biography

VISION DIVINE was born in 1998, originally intended as Olaf Thorsen’s solo project (Labyrinth’s guitarist at the time). Very soon he starts collaborating again with Fabio Lione (lead singer of Labyrinth on their first album “No Limits” and current frontman of Rhapsody of Fire) and the solo project rapidly turns into a real band, its name being a combination of “Vision” -old Labyrinth’s monicker when Olaf created the band- and “Divine” -the title intended for Olaf’s solo album. The line-up got completed with Mat Stancioiu (drums), Andrew Mc Pauls (keyboards) and Andrea Tower Torricini (bass). In 1999 their first studio album, self-titled “VISION DIVINE”, is released and immediately becomes a huge hit. In 2001 the band starts writing and recording the new album, called “SEND ME AN ANGEL”, to be released in January 2002. At the end of that same year Olaf decides to leave Labyrinth to focus exclusively on VD and stop any annoying rumor about VISION DIVINE being considered a mere “side project”. In three years VD release two albums, and thanks to good sales results the band starts touring around the world. We’d like to mention the great South American Tour in December 2000, where for the 1st time an italian Heavy Metal band got the chance to play sold-out concerts in Argentina , Cile, Brasil , Panama and Mexico , as headliners. To further give the band a more consistent and definitive identity, Mat Stancioiu and Andrew Mc Pauls leave VD to play exclusively with Labyrinth, and get replaced by Oleg Smirnoff on keyboards (ex Eldritch and Death SS) and Matteo Amoroso on drums (ex Athena).
