Says vocalist Siegfried Samer:

“The title track to our new album, ‘The Deep & The Dark’, encompasses everything that the album stands for: A return to the musical and lyrical roots of Visions Of Atlantis, with colourful orchestrations, the dual vocals the band is known for, and a great, catchy hook in the chorus. This is definitely a standout track on the album!”
