PHANTOM 13 “Out For Blood” – An Album Of Horror Punk/Shock Rock Whoop-Ass!

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


PHANTOM 13 are from Columbus, Ohio and play Horror Punk and Shock Rock that transcends the definition of an unsigned band from the underground. Instead, Phantom 13 is a band that not only plays a sensational live set of songs, they also have nailed it with their new record of Out For Blood. Phantom 13 flavors their songs with Horror lyrics, a Horror Punk/Shock Rock energy and attitude, while seasoned with a touch of Metal.

With the newest album from Phantom 13 comes a most fantastical listen into the spooky side of Rock ‘N Roll. I’ve found Out For Blood to be a euphoric 9 song, non-stop Horror Punk and Shock Rock ride! In other words, Phantom 13 makes me feel great with their Horror Punk whoop-ass and that’s what matters most.

Crank up the title track Out For Blood, below! Whoa!!

I cannot say it enough, hot damn, are all 9 songs a kick-ass sonic experience on Out For Blood! The album opener and title track sets the eerie mood and up-tempo pace of what’s to come; whether the macabre mood is subtle or obvious, Phantom 13 knows how to musically and lyrically ignite the creepy that lurks in the dark. This is an album that post-Michael Graves era Misfits fans should be clamoring for, with Sutter Cain’s eloquent and very ominous vocals. Regardless, any cold-blooded Misfits fan of any era should dig the Horror Punk grooves that Out For Blood is chock-full of.

Truth be told, I’ve found this new album from Phantom 13 to be just as good (if not better) than anything Wednesday 13 has put out. I’m very serious about that. I’ll even state that Out For Blood has an impressive notch (or two) more hefty kick in its songs than the Misfits last studio album The Devil’s Rain. Bassist Chuck Black makes certain the Horror stomp and roll tramples all in its path, throughout Out For Blood. Excellent songs all. My favorites are: Voices Of The Dead, the title track, Death Comes Calling and Demon Girl. I can state with clear certainty, that Out For Blood has become an all-time favorite album for me and will appear on the Metal Odyssey Best Of list for 2014. Metal be thy name – Stone.
