Self-titled debut album on May 13th, 2016
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of PHANTOM 5's self-titled debut album on May 13th, 2016.
PHANTOM 5 is the new band put together by singer Claus Lessmann, together with producer and guitar player Michael Voss (CASANOVA, MAD MAX, MICHAEL SCHENKER). They have enlisted a sort of who’s of German classic and melodic hard rock with a lineup completed by Robby Boebel (from Frontline), Axel Kruse (from Jaded Heart) and Francis Buchholz (from Scorpions).
Born as “Supremacy”, this new German melodic rock alliance, with five real aces on the pitch, could not disappoint. So, after the name change to Phantom 5, the new album started to take shape. According to Michael Voss: “For me it sounds like we did a follow up to the famous ´Fireworks’ album with a touch of Frontline meets JADED HEART groove… it is a driving monster with huge walls of guitars, powerful soaking drums and fine catchy melodies…we took a trip back into the world of the eighties!!!”
Claus Lessmann adds “I am very proud of being part of a very fine piece of melodic rock and I hope that many people will like and love it the same way we do. Everything came together very naturally and I had the feeling, that our flow of creativity never seemed to run dry, just like it should be. After the more than painful situation with Bonfire, it was exactly the right thing, at the right time to do for me and it just felt and feels so damn right!”
And indeed it’s been a long time since we’ve heard a Melodic Hard Rock record THIS GOOD coming from Germany! Think “Point Blank”, Casanova’s debut album, Frontline’s Heroes, or Fair Warning’s debut record and you get an idea of how this is going to hit you. Get ready to push the play button very often. This record has everything you’d expect and more – enjoy!
Claus Lessmann and Michael Voss will exclusively appear at the Frontiers Rock Festival in the Acoustic Night reserved for VIP tickets purchasers on April 22nd. All info are available here: www.frontiersrockfestival.com
