Today, uprising Norwegian metallers Phantom Fire stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut EP, Return of the Goat, at Decibel magazine’s website. Set for international release on April 23rd via Edged Circle Productions on 7″ vinyl and cassette tape formats, hear Phantom Fire‘s Return of the Goat in its entirety exclusively HERE.
A brand-new entity hailing from Bergen, 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!
In the leadup to its international release this Friday, stream Return of the Goat in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of Decibel, North America’s only monthly metal magazine. Preorder info can be found HERE at Edged Circle‘s Bandcamp. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
