Black Fast Premiere “Phantom I Am” Music Video

Black Fast have premiered a new video for their new song “Phantom I Am,” via Metal Injection. This track is from the band’s new album “Spectre Of Ruin,” which was released today (July 13). Aaron Akin commented:

“This track has some really dark and unique progressions, an interesting overall arrangement and a ripper solo. It’s one of the songs that asks for the most repeat listens. Lyrically it sums up the overall theme and vibe of this record. Doused in the adipocere of extinction, the scorched husk peels, and the insect sings.”

Black Fast Premiere New Song “Husk”

Black Fast have premiered a new song titled “Husk,” via Revolver. This track is from the band’s new album “Spectre Of Ruin,” which will be released on July 13. The group commented:

“‘Husk‘ was the last song to come together just as we started recording this album. It’s a little different from the rest of the songs and we knew right away it had to be the closer. Plus, it has a fucking slide solo.”

Black Fast Premiere New Song “Silhouette Usurper”

Black Fast have premiered a new song titled “Silhouette Usurper,” via Toilet Ov Hell. This track is from the band’s new album “Spectre Of Ruin,” which will be released on July 13. Aaron Akin commented:

“‘Silhouette Usurper‘ was one of the first songs we finished for this new record. Compared to our other songs, this is most song-liest of songs we have written. One of the riffs is called ‘Jammer.’ Jam it immediately.”

Black Fast Cover Thin Lizzy’s “Thunder And Lightning”

Black Fast are streaming their cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Thunder And Lightning,” via Ultimate Classic Rock. Havok guitarist Reece Scruggs guests on the track, which can be heard below:

Aaron Akin said the following:

“Thin Lizzy is my favorite band. “I have this double live album they recorded on their last tour called ‘Life‘ that starts with this song. You can hear the crowd, imagine them walking out onstage and going right into this track. Sadly ‘Thunder And Lightning‘ was the last Thin Lizzy record, Phil died a few short years after its release. It oozes cool, as he did. And the John Sykes guitar solo! I had to call on one of my best buds Reece Scruggs [Havok] to step up and let one rip for us and he absolutely nailed it. I think this fucker landed pretty cool. Its dangerous. it’s streetlights and leather. It’s a switchblade.”
