Funeral Song / Call My NameAbattoir Blues Records
By AJ Phink
The Glass Phantoms have released a new double a side single featuring two new songs, Funeral Song and live favourite Call My Name, the single has been released via Abattoir Blues Records and follows on from The Glass Phantoms 2016 self released debut, I Am The Dark. The single also features stunning artwork by God’s Teeth based on the lyrics from the single, artwork that it must be said captures the spirit of the single perfectly.
Funeral Song boasts a dark twisted hypnotic hammering rhythm, overlaid with vocalist Jimi Wade‘s rasping blues howl and some impressively twisted guitar work, Call My Name takes a step further into the shadows, this song has been an established feature of their live sets, and it’s transferred perfectly to the studio. Unlike most songs with a title like that, this is no love song, it contains the lyric “I’ll Put Your Screams Upon My Mantlepiece” that inspired the dark artwork by God’s Teeth. On this track they up the ante from the opener, Funeral Song, to deliver a deliciously dark and twisted number that personifies everything that I love about this band.
This is a move forward from last years impressive debut single, I Am The Dark, that demonstrates The Glass Phantoms are spreading their wings, with two perfect singles under their belt, and a reputation for heartfelt blistering live performances, The Glass Phantoms are building a reputation for being a band that are delivering their own blend of blues, stoner rock and alt rock which is delivered with their own dark twist, and as a result it’s hard not to fall under their spell. Now that they have Abattoir Blues Records behind them the future is somewhat perversely looking very bright for The Glass Phantoms.
