Element of Fate is a melodic metal project consisting of fantasy artist and vocalist, Carol Phillips, and guitarist/musician, Scott Loose. The duo primarily draw influence from traditional metal bands, but leverage modern recording techniques to craft their unique sound. The music varies from high-energy thrashing to melodic and groovy, and the lyrics explore a range of fantasy-laden, mystical, and sci-fi storylines. Carol’s dynamic voice, paired with Scott’s passion for writing guitar riffs, creates a textured fusion of metallic and dream-like soundscapes. All of the music and releases are accompanied by Carol's original artwork, which creates an even more immersive experience for the listener.
