KINGDOM COME – the legendary copycats! .-)  

I guess everybody remembers back in the late 80s when Lenny Wolf and co. released their 2 first albums and received surprisingly good reviews although they ”almost” copied every phrase Led Zeppelin ever wrote… Kingdom Come invented the term ”Led Clones”!  

Personally, I never really cared much for this band but I own all their albums and to be honest, they’re actually pretty good! Especially the debut!  

Well, Kingdom Come have tried to reinvent themselves up through the years and, in my opinion, never really succeeded in doing so!  

Well, that’s all gonna change now, I guess! Cos’ this new album is a really good combination of charasteristic vocals (Lenny Wolf is one of a kind!), good melodies and, unfortunately, modern guitar sounds (tuned down too far!) – It all comes down to a pretty good album and were it not for the irritating NU-Metal sounds played by the guitar, I’d probably rate this album even higher!  

Strong material and solid craftmanship prevent this boat from sinking and in its own right, this album deserves more media attention than it’ll probably receive.  

Good, not earthshattering, but worth a spin or two!  

And we also get a brand new version of ”Get It On”! Nice!
