Phantom Lord  


Though there are more recent bands with the name Phantom Lord, this version was an obscure group (at the time, presumed to be German) whose selft-titled debut album crossed early Metallica with shades of NWOBHM, though the result isn't as promising as the description might suggest. Messy and poorly produced, Phantom Lord was a forgettable album, and though a second album was released, the band never amounted to much and faded away soon enough.

It was later revealed that this was a side project for former Virgin Steele guitarist Jack Starr. The second album listed the correct lineup (shown below), while the first album listed fake German names.
