BLACK PHANTOM - Zero Hour is Now (Review by David Kiss)

BLACK PHANTOM - Andrea Tito's new traditional Heavy Metal band, bassist and lead author / songwriter for the historic MESMERIZE, on the Italian metal scene for over 25 years.
The embryo is brewing 2014 as a solo project, with a debut CD "Better Beware!" 2017 and BLACK PHANTOM solidifies in band to present the album in a series of concerts, in addition to participating in major festivals, especially in Ilalia since it belongs to the city of Milano.
They continue to compose and shape "Zero Hour Is Now", which was released this March 2020, by the same label Punishment 18 Records, which released their first album.
What can you find on this album? If your puberty developed in the 80's, you will see those tints of the N.W.O.B.H.M, that batch of groups like Def Leppard, Tygers, Saxon ... but here BLACK PHANTOM of those who suck are from THE SAME IRON MAIDEN !!! Killers, The Numbers Of The Beast, Piece ...
THIS IS BAD? Not at all !, all the bands have influences and sucking from LA DONCELLA DE HIERRO is not! reaching the records Bruce Dickinson is a compliment, Murray-Smith harmonies either !! a Harris style bass or drums that remind Nicko of the Piece Of Mind .... lack of personality, for me in this case it is a NOT ROUND!
I do not have much more to say about the album, which is cool, I listen to classic heavy metal, transporting me to my puberty (early 80's) where metal was rudimentary and was in pure evolution, this is what you will find in This album from its first song Redemption, Hordes of Destruction, the Road, an album with 9 good songs.
If you like the trail of bands like Airbone (AC / DC), Darkness (QUEEN), Greta Van Fleet (Led Zeppelin) ... remember the trail of Maiden this represented by BLACK PHANTOM !!!
