Kingdom Come – Kingdom Come

‘Gary Hill’ —  In an era before the Page and Plant albums and Jimmy Page’s reworking of Zep songs with the Black Crowes, this CD garnered a lot of attention by sounding very much like Led Zeppelin. With an audience hungry for the hard-rocking kings of the ’70s, a disc billed that way was guaranteed to sell quite a few copies. Once the listener got it home and gave it a spin, though, it was a little disappointing. Sure, the Zeppelinisms were all over the place, which in and of itself was a mixed blessing. The real drawback to this disc, though, is that much of the CD has a sameness to it. This lack of change makes for a disc that really can grate on you a bit. –by 

Kingdom Come is a hard rock band fronted by Hamburg-born vocalist Lenny Wolf. The group’s first album, Kingdom Come – Kingdom Come is to date the band’s most internationally popular and biggest selling recording. The band currently consists of an entirely German line-up. The musical style on Kingdom Come’s debut album was very close to the early blues-rock style of English rock band Led Zeppelin, to the point that some listeners initially thought that Kingdom Come was actually a Led Zeppelin reunion. With a sound that was thought by many to be highly derivative of Led Zeppelin’s, there was a backlash from critics, with the band being dubbed “Kingdom Clone” in the press.
