2015, Phantasma was born from the longstanding ambition to create a story driven concept record of Georg Neuhauser, vocal force behind Tyrolean Symphonic Metal outfit Serenity. He found his partner in crime with multi-instrumentalist composer, producer and vocalist Oliver Philipps (Everon) who gladly embarked on this new mission that allowed him to reconnect with being a musician in the first place. As Oliver worked with Delain since their debuting record, a request at Charlotte Wessels' address was made to complete the dynamic trio of Phantasma. With Phantasma Charlotte can let her beautiful and variable voice run free like the wind - sometimes tender like on ,,Runaway Grey", plaintive on ,,Let It Die", and the duet ,,The Lotus And The Willow" - makes Charlotte's passion for Nick Cave abundantly clear, matching even the intensity of ,,Where The Wild Roses Grow". Meanwhile Georg's dedication for classic rock acts like Queen and Meatloaf shine through in tracks like ,,Crimson Course" and ,,Novaturient". Ltd. initial pressing with bonus track, as long as stock remains.
