There is new fresh blood from our German neighbours. PHANTOM CORPORATION is a bunch of old friends, who have put together a great band that mixes the best aspects of death metal and crustcore, and they do it really well!!! What else would you expect from the members of bands like Dew-Scented or Eroded. PHANTOM CORPORATION are no amateurs. They have proven themselves with recordings such as their first mini album, First Commandment (which has cover art painted by Away of Canada's Voivod himself), which deliver a full-on punch right in your face!!! 

PHANTOM CORPORATION is also a prolific live band with appearances at festivals like Bloodshed, Ruhrpott Metal Meeting or Metal Bash and we are happy to welcome them to Obscene Extreme 2020!!! It will be one hell of a ride!!!


PHANTOM CORPORATION was started as new musical outlet for old buddies from both the Northern and Ruhr-Area of Germany, currently/previously active in bands like Dew-Scented, Eroded, BK 49 or also Weak Aside in order to combine mean d-beat crust, some punishing death metal as well as good old school thrash/punk into an intense crossover result. 

In October 2016, P.C. released a first mini album entitled “First Commandment”, which showcases cover artwork by Michel “Away” Langevin (Voivod) as well as a guest-vocal appearance by Jason Netherton (Misery Index). The 6 featured tracks were recorded and mixed by Klaus Spangenberg at Beatpoint Studio in Krefeld / Germany as well as mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio. 

Next up, PHANTOM CORPORATION recorded 4 more new tracks (again with the Klaus Spangenberg / Dan Swanö team!) for two 7inch EP projects: The "Cause and Effect" 7“ EP, which was released in 2017 via Affront Records, and then the Split 7inch "Belligerent Powers" with Germany‘s Death Metal commando Slaughterday, which was released in 2018 via Bastardized Recordings. Additionally, "The First Commandment" was issued by the German label FTWCTP Records as 12" Vinyl and a Southamerican version of the Mini-CD came out via Colombia’s Trauma Records.

On the live-front, PHANTOM CORPORATION have appeared at selected festival events (Bloodshed, Ruhrpott Metal Meeting, Metal Bash, etc.) and also shared various club-stages with acts like Trap Them, Venom Prison, Voivod, Asphyx or Krisiun. P.C. are currently working on new material to record their debut album later in 2020…
