virus305 (2003) CD - $12.00

Cascading keyboards, unnerving guitars, off-kilter rhythms, and the grotesque lyricism of THE PHANTOM LIMBS forge a grandiose monument on the verge of collapse like a gothic cathedral built on quicksand.

Their unsettling ilk of carny death rock & punk draws comparisons to The Screamers and Christian Death or contemporaries like the Subtonix, but don't expect today's glut of punks-with-keyboards playing 80s redux! THE PHANTOM LIMBS have carved out a lonesome place for themselves, finding inspiration in Kurt Weill rather than Duran Duran & Culture Club.

Produced by Dan Rathbun of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.

This is what they said about their last album:

"The violent, vengeful ghosts of punk and deathrock past, screaming their rotten-soul rage in your face with some seriously malicious intent."
-Willamette Week

"This is rock music found in the depths of a catacomb and brought to shuddering, swirling life . . . . both maddening and thrilling to those who have outgrown punk rock and goth."
-Silke Tudor, SF Weekly

"Second coming of Christian Death, perhaps? I love this record . . . . Distorted, twisted and the perfect soundtrack to my nightmares." -Maximum RockNRoll
