Canadian modern power metal icons UNLEASH THE ARCHERS recently announced the upcoming release of their massive sixth studio album, Phantoma, out May 10, 2024 via Napalm Records! Following the album's first two singles "Green & Glass" and "Ghosts In The Mist", the Vancouver-based five-piece has revealed their soaring third single, "Seeking Vengeance", along with a new music video! Beginning with a fast-paced guitar lead and modernized power metal attacks, the song entrances with a powerful chorus and intricate dual solo.

On the new concept album, listeners join protagonist Phantoma, a Phase 4/Network Tier 0 unit - model A, on an inspiring yet harrowing journey as she discovers the brutal truths behind the manufactured sheen of social media posturing on a dystopian, near-future planet earth. With the band's one-of-a-kind blend of power metal, traditional heavy metal, modern prog, and pop sensibilities, Phantoma spins a web of sharp musicality, high sci-fi concept, and important social commentary.

Brittney Slayes of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS says about "Seeking Vengeance":

"This is the moment in the story when Phantoma comes to terms with what she must do and who she must become in order to do it. We worked really hard to make sure the music reflects the energy of the moment, and I think the video does a great job of portraying the inner struggle as well. This was filmed and edited by the boys at RuneGate Studio and they focused on using lighting and different lenses to create a dynamic visual experience.

The song is the darkest moment of the album but it is juxtaposed with an uplifting chorus melody that was actually inspired by classic Disney 'hero anthems'. This one was a unanimous single choice for us and we can't wait to play it live for you all at our upcoming shows! Hope you enjoy."

Mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen, and with lead guitarist Andrew Kingsley at the helm as both principal songwriter and producer, Phantoma is an exciting advancement in UNLEASH THE ARCHERS' songwriting and storytelling mastery, and a giant leap forward in their towering musical trajectory.

Phantoma follows the band's 2020 breakout album, Abyss, which won the JUNO Award for Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year after debuting at #1 on the US Current Hard Music and Top New Artist charts, and was dubbed by Bandcamp as "a mandatory listen" upon release.
