Phantom Rock n Roll! LA based Phantom.357 brings an energetic new mix to rock n’ roll. Their music draws elements from many genres including punk, metal, and rockabilly. The result is equivalent to a rock ‘n roll .357 gun blast.
Their newest release “Roadhouse Nightmare” is an aggressive punk rock n roll 7-song record. It is featured on iTunes, Amazon, Interpunk, Last.FM and Rhapsody. It shows a musical growth brought on by the addition of three new members to the group. The police sirens on the opening track “Danger City” signals that you’ve entered a nightmarish city that requires you to have a .357 pistol on you at all times. The curiously titled “What’s Wrong with this Picture (Peter Frampton)” shows a mature arrangement, as it departs from the straightforward punk of the opening songs on the disc favoring a more melodic introspective narrative. The last cut “Just Don’t Care” is the grand finally to their live performances and to this album. This is a crowd favorite, mixing 50’s rockabilly sound with some punk rock attitude. The outro is reminiscent of a can-can riff and it truly makes you want to get up and dance.
Phantom.357 has been terrorizing Los Angeles since front man Nate.357 arrived from Hawaii. Phantom.357 sprung from the ashes of his Hawaii band “the Gonners”. Nate arranged the group like most bands do nowadays: through Craigslist ads. Phantom.357 recorded their first release “Final First Day” in 2007 then added Rich on second guitar and CT on bass. After gigging with a few drummers they solidified their lineup with the addition of Pete in early 2008. Phantom.357 has played shows all over Hollywood, Los Angeles, and Orange County and in early 2008 embarked on a 2 week tour all over Southern California cities.
Currently, Phantom.357 are touring to showcase their new record “Roadhouse Nightmare” and are eager to get back into the studio and record another full-length album. Their music appeals to multiple genres because of its heartfelt approach. It is a perfect mix between aggressive punk riffs, melodic hooks, 50's style crooning and thunderous drum assaults.
