Florida's Seven Kingdoms are now 10 years into their career, with Napalm Records seeing (or rather hearing) the light and picking up Decennium, the band's fourth full-length album. Power Metal is the game and these five musicians play it oh so well. From the majestic chorus of opener "Stargazer" through the quirky and insanely catchy "In the Walls" to the speed fest that is "Hollow", this band brings the goods and plays with energy and conviction to spare. Decennium is divided between truly outstanding tracks and some that are merely good, but at no time does it sound like Seven Kingdoms isn't having fun. Speed, keyboards, neoclassical solos, fine (female) vocals; it's all here. Putting on Decennium is like taking a trip back to the late 90s and hearing Ecliptica, Theater of Salvation and Symphony of Enchanted Lands for the first time. If you are a Power Metal fan and don't yet own Decennium, what are you waiting for?
