Phantom Fire "Return of the Goat"


“These two tracks signal what could be a modern-day Norwegian metal classic, the kind that has the attitude, the vibe, the guts to stand out, and the right set of low-hanging balls to ride proud into the black of night.”
– Decibel Magazine

“This is the magic of black metal at its finest, delivered full throttle at a million miles per hour.”
– Two Guys Metal Reviews

A brand-new entity hailing from Bergen, Norway, PHANTOM FIRE includes members from such bands as Gaahls Wyrd and Krakow, but on evidence of their first public recording, the two-song Return of the Goat, PHANTOM FIRE are definitely their OWN band! Hard-rocking, hard-charging, reeking of rust and diesel, here do PHANTOM FIRE kick out two jams of lithe ‘n’ lethal metal blackened to a crisp. And while so many nowadays “retro” bands head straight to the party, PHANTOM FIRE are intent on ruining that party, spreading black leathery wings wide and ominously.

A unique take on the traditional, Return of the Goat is a deadly auspicious first start, and the title track’s a tasty preview of PHANTOM FIRE’s forthcoming debut album, The Bust of Beelzebub, due out early September via EDGED CIRCLE. You’ve been warned!
