New Review at Sonic Cathedral: Seven Kingdoms – “Seven Kingdoms”

What do you think when you hear the words “female-fronted power metal”?  Nightwish must come to mind.  Maybe Edenbridge, Krypteria, Amberian Dawn, and HolyHell, too.  All of these bands have shaped female-fronted power metal as being bombastic, symphonic, and driven by a classically trained female singer – and as a result, whenever we heard someone describe a band as female-fronted power metal, we think, “Uh oh, I think I know exactly how this one will sound.”  Well, you can’t say about about Floridian power metallers Seven Kingdoms.  They’ve taken pages out of Iced Earth’s and Blind Guardian’s books, opting for a guitar-licking style with fantasy-inspired lyrics and thrash, progressive, and death metal influences.  Thus, saying that Seven Kingdom’s self-titled second album is different from other releases in this genres is a huge understatement – and one that fans shouldn’t miss.
