Phantasmagoria

Phantasmagoria

Phantasmagoria chose a way through music with an idea of creating something unique in the post punk sunset of Zagreb. Inspiration for the name was found at the same titled The Damned album, but it also reminds about apparent fiction of universal truth. Marked as a dark band Phantasmagoria soon earned their status in Croatian underground szene. First single "Alex" (1988.) went straight to No. 1 indie-charts position which was followed by the press responses in the favour of the band. The following singles "Poziv U Raj" and "Ja Gledam Svojim Ocima" (1989.) repeated that success. Phantasmagoria 1990. earned the title of a best new alternative band by music press. The first Phantasmagoria’s video-clip for the song "Better World" (1991.) came straight to No. 1 on national television chart and next one, for the song "Isolated" (1992.), was chosen as one of 10 the best video-clips in Croatia for the year 1993. Although the war in Croatia seriously damaged their career, Phantasmagoria never gave up playing live, in war-zones and at many anti-war festivals. Phantasmagoria has twice performed at the famous festival "Wave Gotik Treffen" in Leipzig, Germany, played on "Dark Nation Day" festival in Vienna, "Metal Camp" in Slovenia, "Viva La Pola!" festival in Pula, Croatia, a headliner tour in Czech Republic and Slovakia, supported and play with many great acts like The Young Gods, Mizar, Let 3, New Model Army, Iggy Pop, Borghesia, Christian Death, Kismet, Clan Of Xymox, Theatres Des Vampires, Diva Destruction, Moriis, In Extremo, Charon, Deathstars, Type O Negative, The 69 Eyes, The Mission, ... 93!
