DEAD! - Phantom 
Dead! - Phantom

I love a bit of punctuation in a band name so we're off to a flyer here and then the music comes bounding in like a leather clad Labrador high on 'special' biscuits. New single 'Phantom' sees skanking guitars blended with pounding drums and a real sense of mischief and menace. Stylistically this is somewhere between Rancid, the Misfits, Velcro Hooks and West Coast Nu-Metal which the part of me that still buys skater trainers finds incredibly exciting. The video looks a lot of fun as well which gives the impression that these guys would be ace live which is lucky because next month they're heading out on a national tour so get down the front and prepare to skank your end of summer blues away.
