Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce Phantom Elite’s new studio album “Blue Blood” on March 17th, 2023.
Phantom Elite is an international metal band fronted by Marina La Torraca (Exit Eden, live vocalist for Avantasia) with guitarist & bassist Max van Esch, drummer Joeri Warmerdam, and featuring production by former After Forever guitarist and producer Sander Gommans. The band traffics in modern metal, combining elements of symphonic, progressive, and heavy metal into their own unique concoction.
The seeds of Phantom Elite initially sprang from producer 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 were ready to take flight. They followed up with their sophomore album, “Titanium” (2021), which saw the band further expand their fanbase and continue to establish themselves as a band on the rise.

Comments the band on “Inner Beast”:
“Our new single is finally out everywhere and we’re absolutely thrilled! It’s an honor to be able to share more music with you. So go listen to it wherever you prefer, and make sure you don’t miss the music video – done with the none less than the best man in the industry, Mirko Witzki. We love you, man!
Huge thanks to Thorsten Tolksdorf for letting us show off his beautiful Dodge; and to Siebe Sol Sijpkens for being the best ghoul we could find (and bass player, ofc)! Also to Sebastian Pielnik for capturing everything behind the scenes; Laura Schlösser for the cool-chic makeup/hair; and to Kami Zero for giving us a hand (literally, the monster hand) with insane props, even though he wasn’t there”.
