Phantasma released their debut album, The Deviant Hearts, this week, and you can catch the artsyfor the track “Miserable Me” in the player above. But what’s this band about?
If you watched the video, it’s clear that Phantasma is a symphonic metal band with massive amounts of theatrical energy. All that comes from the band’s members: Georg Neuhauser (Serenity), Oliver Philipps (Everon), and Charlotte Wessels (Delain). But there’s even more if you count the invited guests, such as members of the Neal Morse band and Trans-Siberian Orchestra on “Miserable Me.”
Wessels explains the track and video:
We are happy to present to you another official Phantasma track and video. In ‘Miserable Me’, Georg introduces one of the most troubled characters from The Deviant Hearts as he gives voice to our misunderstood deity; a god tired of being called a demon.
Since The Deviant Hearts is also a novella that Wessels wrote, she might know best how to explain the songs and videos that come from the album of the same name. Needless to say, there’s a concept album here.
Order The Deviant Hearts here.
