Phantom's Light
by Thor

Album: Beyond The Pain Barrier (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to nearly 6 minutes, this Jon Mikl Thor solo composition is an enigmatic song inspired by nature. Thor was born in Vancouver, and according to the man himself it is about "voices and visions. It was a full moon. I was in the wilderness in Northern British Columbia. In the distance from my campsite it looked as though someone was walking with a lantern. I just let my mind open up. I grabbed my guitar and looked at the starry sky. It was a song that I sang around the camp fire that night."

    Featuring some fine guitar work and a solid bass line, like the rest of the 2017 Beyond The Pain Barrier album, Track 6 is published by Vulcan Sky Music/Vulcan Sky Entertainment Group. >>
