4 stars On Sound of the Apocalypse, Black Bonzo's second album the band has undergone a slight musical metamorphosis. On their debut album the music was extremely inspired by Uriah Heep but on the new one they have moved into far more progressive territories. Many of today's progressive band's at times sounds very bombastic and flashy, but this is not the case with Black Bonzo who has a very 70's laid back, yet powerful sound. Musical reference points are many. At times they sound like Gentle Giant ("Giant Games"), Jethro Tull ("Revelation Song") and early Kansas ("Ageless Door"). The band hails from Skellefteċ in Sweden and once again I'm amazed over the quality of music coming out of Scandinavia nowadays with bands like Dungen, Magic Pie or Anekdoten. Now you can add Black Bonzo to that list !
