Dutch/Brazilian metal act have released their sophomore album, “” via today. Additionally, the band has also released the new music video for ‘Glass Crown‘. Watch HEREhttps://youtu.be/v4MPYE1pnvs

 

 is a relatively new metal band fronted by singer (Exit Eden, live vocalist for Avantasia) and features executive production from former After Forever guitarist and producer Sander Gommans. Songwriters Marina, Max van Esch (guitars), and Joeri Warmerdam (drums) are set to unleash an incredible slice of contemporary sounding heavy metal music in their sophomore album “”. Sonically, the band is a perfect combination of symphonic, progressive, alternative, and heavy metal.

Vocalist  says that, “our album  is the result of musicians who had never written songs together before, mixing all sorts of influences, and sharing their passion for music and arts. It definitely wasn’t easy, but all the work paid off in a consistent, melodic, modern and heavy sounding album, which we hope will be a safe haven and source of strength for many music fans through such weird times.”

Regarding the new music video ‘Glass Crown’, she continues “It’s a cautionary tale about social media culture, a competition for a fragile glass crown. Who has never felt sick of it all? Filters, all the carefully curated content and complex levels of pressure points, it wears on you. We, as artists, need it as a platform to share our work, but we can also make a stand. And who said headbanging and dancing don’t go together?”

Originating six years ago, the seeds of sprang from Sander Gomman’s HDK project. While releasing the HDK album “Serenades of the Netherworld”, Gommans brought together a group of young musicians with the intent of playing HDK’s songs in a live setting. The natural chemistry among these passionate musicians wound up sparking a wealth of new and exciting musical ideas and thus Phantom Elite was born. The debut album “Wasteland” (2018), and the accompanying well received tour of Europe, showed that Phantom Elite are ready to take flight.
