It’s no secret that I’ve been looking forward to Seven Kingdoms’ new album The Fire Is Mine all year long. So as soon as the release date (October 9th) was announced, I volunteered for the review faster than you can say, “Yes, please!” I knew that Seven Kingdoms, a female-fronted power metal band from Deland, Florida, had planned to shed the remaining death metal influences from their early days. (Their previous album, Seven Kingdoms, features sporadic male grunting.) And Seven Kingdoms didn’t deviate from those plans. The Fire Is Mine is straight-up power metal with lots of grit and fire, as well as a frontwoman (Sabrina Valentine) who’s more confident in her role than ever before. You’ll have to read my review for my entire verdict, though. *wink*
