PHANTOM 13 – That’s it at the top! Whoa! That’s my autographed PHANTOM 13 CD! I was able to catch these Horror Punk/Shock Rock bad-asses opening for the Queen Of Heavy Metal, aka, Doro Pesch and her band DORO. This concert took place at Ace Of Cups in Columbus, Ohio, back on February 9th. HARD ROCK HIDEOUT‘s very own Rob Rockitt took my Rockaholic ass for a ride out to this DORO show and we both had a blast.
PHANTOM 13 are from Columbus, Ohio and they gave their hometown crowd of fans one hell of a spooktacular good time. I had heard of PHANTOM 13 before seeing them on that night; now I’m a fan. The band members of PHANTOM 13 were out and about in the crowd after their set, as well as hanging around their merch table. I bought their self-titled CD from them for $6. As the night progressed, each member of the band was more than happy to sign the front cover to the liner notes for me. Very cool.
Being a fan of the Misfits, Balzac and Wednesday 13 (to name a few) is no secret around here. Horror Punk, Horror Metal and Shock Rock just sucks me in. I love it. I really dig the moments when AFI and Aiden have dabbled into the Punk Horror theme. If any of these bands I’ve mentioned are favorites of yours, then, PHANTOM 13 is a band worthy of your time and money.
PHANTOM 13’s vocalist Sutter Cain comes across as an ominous figure, both physically and vocally, however, he politely apologized when he nearly walked into me in the crowd. That’s called having Rockin’ class and I respect that. From this experience, I’d have to readily admit that PHANTOM 13 can play and are a class act off the stage. I highly recommend seeing these guys live and don’t hesitate to buy their merch and music; whether it’s one mp3, an entire CD or slab of vinyl. Metal be thy name.
