French sensation Symphonic Power Metallers PHOEBUS THE KNIGHT have released a video for their new song ‘Children Of The Night’ taken from the band’s debut album “Ferrum Fero Ferro Feror”, coming out January 23rd via Renaissance Records US.
PHOEBUS THE KNIGHT comments on “Children Of The Night“:
“In this song, the Beast has been sent to the very dangerous dimension called the Tartarus by Phoebus and Selene after an epic fight (during the song ‘The Scarlet Dance’).
After going through this dimension, the Beast manages to reach his homeland: hell.
He has reclaimed his place in the infernal city and is now gathering his army to go find its soul sister Lilith for opening a portal to Paris and attack with their demonic and vampiric troops.
This is why this song has a very dark tone, heavy riffings and is sung exclusively with growls, screams and epic choirs ! It is meant to represent the evil entity of the story gathering its troops with authority!”
When history meets fantasy, when Metal passion meets deepest love for great Classical music, the result is operatic SYMPHONIC POWER METAL at it’s best!
Successfully funded with a Ulule Crowdfunding, “Ferrum Fero Ferro Feror” was made with the 11.400 Euros collected there, thanks to the fans! It will be released on Renaissance Records US.

Each track of this truly fantastic debut album is a chapter of Phoebus’ story, the knight alchemist:
from the forgotten dimension of the “Darkest Woods”, going through the gates of Hell, to the crucible of Terror in Paris, you will follow Phoebus and his friends the Knights of Heliopolis, in an epic quest to defeat The Beast and his desire for eternal war.
To put all the events in a dramaturgic vision, this collection of songs is a blend of several musical moods, combining heavy ballads, Metal tracks with majestic orchestrations and instrumental parts.
Lyrics are for the most part in English and a bit of French, all performed with the beguiling lyrical bass voice of Axel, in clean and screamed vocals.
And what a solemn stroke of luck master Axel is for the music of the band:
All too seldom has such a noble sublime voice been carved out of such an inconceivably gigantic vocal talent with such immeasurable dedication and downright unearthly diligence!

PHOEBUS THE KNIGHT comments on “The Scarlet Dance“:
“The ‘Scarlet Dance‘ is the first epic battle of the album. Phoebus found Selene in the Darkest woods and they’re going to fight the Beast with a strategy they came with. For this song, we went with the typical Power Metal riffs and verses, made a long orchestral bridge with some folk surprises after it and a chorus inspired by operatic melodies to make it a long, rich and truly epic song!”
