KINGDOM COME ‘Perpetual’
(Frontiers FRCD206)(2004)

Kingdom Come, or Lenny Wolf to be more accurate, return with a follow-up to 2002’s fine ‘Independent’. Like ‘Independent’ Lenny Wolf handles nearly everything himself and again the whole album has a very electronic feel in the drum sound and layered guitars. ‘Gotta Move Now’ keeps that Led Zep feel, especially in the riffing but adds Lenny Wolf’s distinctive vocals and strings.

A doomy riff drives ‘Hang ‘em High’ along nicely but ‘Crown of Moscow’ just drifts along and I still can’t recall much of the song some dozen plays later. ‘Connecting Time’ sees the riffing back and ‘Watch The Dragon Fly’ goes into a Pink Floyd vibe before a huge drum and guitar riff kick in on the chorus. The acoustic ‘Inhaling the Silence’ gets song of the album and it would be nice to see Lenny Wolf perhaps do a whole acoustic album at some point in the future.

Not as strong as ‘Independent’ and perhaps Lenny Wolf needs a band’s input on the next album to give the album more variety. It’s not a bad album and many long time fans may well enjoy it but for me I doubt I will be playing this in a year’s time, unlike ‘Independent’, which still gets a regular airing.
