Toronto’s Phantom High are debuting their latest single “Black Divine” on Metal Injection right now.
Phantom High has amassed several singles and an EP since their inception in 2017, putting a glam core twist on Lady Gaga, Bryan Adams, and Childish Gambino tracks as well as shaping their own originals. Coined as “ironic pop back from hell”, Phantom High will entice those looking for something very different from the traditional rock aesthetic. Those who can look past the mask can expect a cathartic release, anthemic melodies, heavy guitars, and abysmal soundscapes, under honest unfiltered lyrics. The lyrics and inspiration behind “Black Divine” resonate in a special way as vocalist Peril Erinyes explains:
“Taken from ancient Egyptian culture, “Sacred or Divine Feminine”, which referred to aspects and/or traits of artistry. Mine was dark, hence the addition of “black”. It’s essentially the title I’d given the “closet” I was in, the music and dreams of becoming my true self, were what kept me from ending my life, despite how poor, how alone, and how sick or abused I was, there was always my “Black Divine” to close my eyes and fall into its promise, like a symbiotic possession.”
Phantom High is purely an experience, a real-life exorcism every time they go on stage. A flurry of passion, musicianship, and over the top antics await anyone who dares to witness the spectacle. A first-hand look at Phantom High can be seen over at MetalInjection who is premiering the video HERE.
Recommended for fans of goth, glam, and nu-metal, especially those who enjoy KORN, Deftones, and Motionless In White, the single releases worldwide on December 18, 2020 and available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon.
Hailing from Toronto and flaunting a deep personal relationship with the pageantry of the macabre, Phantom High is already making their mark on a scene that too often leaves the “fun” out of “dysfunction”. The band has launched with a mission statement to bring authenticity, conviction, and theatrics back to a genre that centers on navel-gazing and nihilism.
The roots of their inspiration are easy to see for veterans of the golden days of goth and glam, drawing energy as much from the horror in film, anime, and literature as from the music genres that inform their hard-hitting live show.
Phantom High is anarchistic alchemy, bringing together the fundamental elements of what scares us, what turns us on, and what makes us hungry for substance in an ephemeral, digital world that no longer seems interested in keeping the blood pumping, the volume loud and the music in each and every face.
Phantom High prides itself on putting the music and the show first and foremost, staying true to their roots while planting new ones like mausoleums in the fertile ground of a whole new generation desperate for something to scream along to.

“Phantom High performing at Handlebar, where the Toronto based horror glamcore group gave fans quite the show! The four piece shared the stage with Trick Casket & DI Auger for a horror filled night. If you’re looking for a terrifying mix of hard rock/electro with elements of Nu Metal Synthwave you’re in luck”. – Dropout Entertainment
“When a roving band of glam-core horror enthusiasts hunt down Trent Reznor on Purge Night and pull his guts out through his nose with a rusty fishhook, they’ll be listening to Phantom High.” – MyFreakingEars
“Just before the world fell apart, we recorded a studio session inside Playdead Cult’s DIY concert space, with an awesome Toronto GLAMCORE band called PHANTOM HIGH. If you haven’t heard of them that’s because they’re fairly new, but tune in and you’re gonna leave this episode understanding why we’re so excited about this band.” – Gobs The Zombie – Midnight Looms/94.9FM radio Western (London, ON)
Long-awaited and highly-anticipated second full-length album by KULTIKA, one of the first Romanian Post Metal bands. Musically speaking, KULTIKA‘s horizon broadened into long instrumental passages, experimenting with a 70’s progressive and psychedelic infusion into the band’s classic roots of Post / Sludge / Black Metal, gathering in the end a strange and hermetic mix-up that has its own style.

AKRAL NECROSIS – THE GREATER ABSENCE
The new album by the Romanian black metal band Akral Necrosis, their third overall and their first full-length in four years, is a narrative of more than an hour in length. Entitled The Greater Absence, it follows an ambitious, ignorant protagonist in his pathetic yet hazardous quest “to reveal the mysteries of the unseen and the afterlife”. Certain parts of the exposition were inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s 1968 legendary film Vargtimmen (“Hour of the Wolf”), and it further includes a guest appearance by the young Romanian poet David Topala, with an unpublished poem that is reproduced in fragments on three of the album’s tracks.
New EP from one of the most important Romanian Black Metal bands, Nebuisa features 4 long tracks of unconventional and intricate Black Metal; inventive songwriting and superior musicianship collide towards a multi-faceted type of Black Metal Ordinul Negru used its followers with
OMASS is a more complex yet more solid effort compared to the band’s debut EP. It contains 4 tracks in 21 minutes with material written between 2012 and 2015. All the songs are connected to Death in certain ways: Phosphorous Blaze is about a passed Hungarian practice, Remnants deals with the relation between nature and man, Greatest of All Shadows is crafted of an apocalyptic vision, The Grey Feast praises the Bacchian cult of Autumn. Each piece is accompanied by a separate artwork, drawn by the Greek/German artist ikosidio, just as the front cover.
Phobos Monolith is a Cosmic Melodic Death Metal band that was started in 2018 by guitarist and primary song writer Pedro Vela in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamulipas. Together with Victor Tellez and Willy Tovar on drums and lead guitar respectively, they pieced together a live band that draws influences from 90’s era melodic death doom metal. With the recruitment of Eliseo Lara on bass and vocal duty the lineup became a complete unit.
Phobos Monolith combines all of the vast musical elements that are reminiscent of bands such as Amorphis, Tiamat, Katatonia, Anathema, Edge of Sanity, Paradise Lost and many more, while the lyrical themes explore the natural phenomena of space-time and the multiverse through a collection of existentialist introspection.
Váthos started in the fall of 2017, based in Bucharest.

KATHAROS XIII‘s third opus, Palindrome, is made of five long tracks that shifted from the traditional Depressive Black Metal into a more eclectic art form of expression with Dark Doom Metal and Post-Jazz elements, a certain evolution into a more personal unearthly ambiance that represent a new path in the journey that this band embarked more than twelve years ago. The same paranoia and weirdness but with different tools this time.
