3 stars 3.5 stars. BLACK BONZO are from Northern Sweden and play a seventies style brand of music.

Heavy on the hammond organ with harmonies give them a URIAH HEEP sound, there is no questioning that, especially on the first song "Lady of the Light". The singer is a very good vocalist, definitely one of the bands strengths. I love his voice on "Brave Young Soldier" and the mellotron is played on these first two songs as well.

I'm reminded a little of Nicklas from ANEKDOTEN when he sings on "These Are The Days Of Sorrow". It's actually a fun song, lots of organ. His vocals on "Freedom" really sound like Freddy Mercury. "Sirens" has an "In The Court Of The Crimson King" vibe, and is mellotron drenched. "Jailbait" has a DEEP PURPLE feel because of the organ. Nice guitar solo as well in this one.

If you want to take a trip back into the early seventies check out BLACK BONZO, these guys do it right and they do it extremely well.
