Kings Destroy, who recently announced that their fourth album, “Fantasma Nera,” would arrive on March 8 via Svart Records, now debut the title track from the forthcoming release.
“While touring in Italy with Rosetta a few years ago, one of the band members earned the nickname “Fantasma Nera.” Italian for “Black Ghost.” The term eventually found its way into this song as a metaphor for the darkest part of human nature and the struggle to accept and embrace it.”
Explained guitar player Carl Porcaro.
“Fantasma Nera” pre-orders are available now with physical bundles including colored vinyl and other merchandise. Digital pre-orders include an instant download of the title track.
The band has announced an East Coast Tour prior to the week of release as well as a recently announced performance at the Maryland Doom Fest on June 20.
