Are you ready to rock?
Phantom 5 is a new German melodic rock alliance featuring Michael Voss - Guitar (Casanova), Claus Lessmann - Vocals (Bonfire), Francis Buchholz - Bass (ex.Scorpions), Robby Boebel - Guitar (Frontline) and Axel Kruse - Drums (Jaded Heart).
It won´t be hard to guess what sound we´re dealing with here, it´s not grunge, not numetal or anything experimental.
Phantom 5 is a classic hairmetal album with the typical German accent, but I think it´s charming. We have no problem with Klaus Meine singing the way he does and it´s the same with Bonfire frontman Claus Lessmann on this record.
Fans of this genre will be more than pleased.
Highlights : Blue dog, They won´t come back, Frontline
Recommended if you like Bonfire, Dokken, Zeno
