Dutch/Brazilian metal act Phantom Elite have announced that their sophomore album, “Titanium” will be released on January 22, 2021. Today, fans can get their first look at the album with the single and video for ‘Diamonds And Dark‘.
Originating six years ago, the seeds of Phantom Elite 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.
“With the support of Frontiers and their decades of history in the music business, we are proud to present the release of our second album with them in 2021,” says the band. “Listeners can expect songs where modern meets symphonic and progressive, (very!) heavy riffs meet epic melodies, all overloaded with a wide spectrum of emotions and love for music. For sure, a high note in our careers!”
