KINGDOM COME

Outlier

(Steamhammer/SPV)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

KINGDOM COME has always gotten a bad rap for being LED ZEPPELIN clones and vocalist Lenny Wolf has never been able to shake off the derogatory comparisons to Robert Plant. Although most people probably thought the band had dropped off the face of the earth after 1989’s sophomore release, In Your Face, Kingdom Come continued to release records. Outlier is the band’s first album of all new material since 2009’s Magnified, and it’s a one man show. Wolf, the sole original member, recorded every instrument (minus guitar leads) as well as produced, engineered, mixed and mastered the album in his own studio. However, one must proceed with caution before listening to it. Outlier is laced with pulsating electronic/techno/industrial synth beats, a tinny snare drum and cardboard box bass drum sound, and an overall melancholic vibe. On the bright side, Wolf’s vocals really do shine; they are emotive and descriptive. His lyrics are life-based antidotes and personal reflections sung with warmth, dexterity and charisma. Songs ‘Such A Shame’ and ‘The Trap Is Alive’ have that classic hard rock Kingdom Come flavor, but you’ll realize that Wolf is living in modern times with a modern production and feeling to the songs. Even though Outlier is a departure from the classic Kingdom Come sound of their first two albums, it’s still a fine effort from Wolf.
