An evening of international female fronted metal:
Plus support Phantom Elite (Holland) + TBA
Show starts 7.30pm
Melodic metal band Angel Nation was formed in 2011 by Finnish opera singer turned rock singer, Elina Siirala. She moved to London to study in 2008 and started her own band originally under the name EnkeliNation, which means Angel Nation in Finnish. After years of working the local London circuit, playing festivals such as Bloodstock and Lankafest (Finland), developing songs and performance, the debut LP 'Tears of Lust' was released in 2014 to great reviews. The band released their latest single ‘Do It Anyway’ in September 2016, taken from their second album to be released later this year.
Sander Gommans [After Forever] and the Dutch/Brazilian band Phantom Elite are coming with full power to breathe fresh air into the female-fronted metal scene.
Originated 2 years ago from Sander Gomman's HDK project while releasing his second album "Serenades of the Netherworld", Gommans brought together this group of young musicians with the purpose of playing HDK's material on stages for the first time.
The natural chemistry among the musicians however sparked many new and exciting ideas and, together with Sander, the group embarked on a journey writing songs for their debut album.
Thus Phantom Elite is born.
