Welcome to the theatrical shock rock of SILVER PHANTOM. On the first single to be known from their debut album, the Danish band takes the central stage with a song that mixes wildly the variety of styles that influences them and end up with a song that is as dramatic as catchy.
““Black Lady” is a heavy-riffing track inspired by 90’s grunge and 80’s heavy rock choruses”, the band comments. “A track that is easy going and friendly to the rock ear. The lyrics speak of the “Black Lady”, an ambiguous shadow entity, who might be benevolent as a contrast to the light, and as such may act as a guide in the darkness“.
“This is our first single from the album in a more radio-friendly format, and a video clip that shows the band’s performance, wrapped up in a tongue-in-cheek intro and outro to celebrate the glory days of the VHS generation“.
Silver Phantom is a rock band that mixes a wide variety of subgenres to create a new, old-school vibe. The heavy riffing of hard rock and the raw energy of the punk scene from the ’70s meet the power of 80s metal. The sound is further infused with singalong choruses and the playful genre-bending of the ’90s and the ’00s power rock – all merged and combined with theatrical shock rock.
The lyrical universe is drawing its inspiration from dark and dreamy horror stories across mysticism and ancient legends to the movements of the heavens, and presents you with a powerfully blended cocktail to entertain your rock’n’roll soul!
Silver Phantom gives you a different take on what rock music sounds like when it’s a unique mix of heavy rock, punk rock and power rock – all merged and combined with theatrical shock rock.
The band emerged when co-founders singer/bassist Helgren and guitarist Madsen wanted to make some good, old-fashioned rock noise with a twist. After writing hooks, riffs and songs together for a few years they were ready to complete the lineup with drummer Kim Kvist and lead guitarist Mads Møller in 2019.
The debut album “Crimson Cabaret” was recorded and produced by Morten Madsen at Popshit Studio (Metal Cross, Mirage, etc) and mixed and mastered at Medley Studios by Danish rock legend Søren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, Marco Mendoza, Tygers Of Pan Tang and many more).
“Crimson Cabaret” will be released on digital, CD, and LP (black vinyl, limited to 300 units) via UPRISING! Records on October 28th, 2022.
