Phantasma Dares You To "Enter Dreamscape"

Phantasma - the new symphonic rock musical featuring Delain's Charlotte Wessels, Serenity's Georg Neuhauser and Everon's Oliver Phillipps - has premiered the lyric video for new track "Enter Dreamscape" right here on Metal Underground.com (check it out below). The song is taken from the upcoming debut "The Deviant Hearts," which will drop on November 20th via Napalm Records.

Phantasma was born from the longstanding ambition to create a story-driven concept record of Georg Neuhauser, vocal force behind 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 a welcome change from working for other bands, which he has done extensively over the years, providing the rich sound connoisseurs of the genre have come to expect from him.

As Oliver worked with Delain since their debuting record, a request at Charlotte Wessels's address was made to complete the dynamic trio of Phantasma. It is therefore not only surprising, but also gratifying that Charlotte lends not only her voice to Phantasma, but also her debut novella "The Deviant Hearts," which she specifically wrote for the project.

Charlotte commented on "Enter Dreamscape": “We are so happy to share this first track from "The Deviant Hearts" with you! There is much more to come. We hope you like what you hear! You can find pre-order links to the album below!”

Pre-orders can be made at this location.

Giving a face to several characters in the story are noted guest vocalists Tom Englund (Evergrey), who performs on tracks such as "Enter Dreamscape" and "The Deviant Hearts," Cloe Lowery (T.S.O.), who shines on the heart-wrenching ballad "Try" alongside Dennis Schunke (Van Canto), and who can also be heard pn "Carry Me Home." Georg, Oliver, and Charlotte themselves finish the vocal palette while the sound is completed by Jason Gianni (Daredevil Squadron, Neal Morse Band, T.S.O.) on drums, Randy George (Neal Morse Band, Ajalon) on bass and Tom Buchberger (ex-Serenity) guesting two songs on guitar. Milan-based artist Marco Mazzoni provides the haunting cover art (shown below) and illustrations to the story, creating an eerie visual world with his elaborate style. More...

Serenity/Delain Members Announce Phantasma

Allow yourself to be transported to another world by Phantasma - a project sprung from the collective energy of Georg Neuhauser (Serenity), Oliver Philipps (Everon) and Charlotte Wessels (Delain). The release features memorable songs and intense arrangements centered around included novella ‘The Deviant Hearts’. It releases on October 20th via Napalm Records.

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 a welcome change from working for other bands, which he has done extensively over the years, providing the rich sound connoisseurs of the genre have come to expect from him. As Oliver worked with Delain since their debut record, a request at Charlotte Wessels’ address was made to complete the dynamic trio of Phantasma.

To introduce Charlotte Wessels to any connoisseur of symphonic metal would be like carrying coals to Newcastle - she is, after all, since 2005 the vocal figurehead of Dutch grandees Delain. It is therefore not only surprising, but also gratifying that Charlotte now even found some leisure time, to lend not only her voice to Phantasma, but also her debut novella ‘The Deviant Hearts - which was written especially for the project.
