NI ROCKS recommends "Outlier" by KINGDOM COME
As much as I love finding new bands to listen to, it’s always good to get new releases from some of the “classic” rock bands that have been around for decades. From Steamhammer/SPV comes the new release by Kingdom Come entitled “Outlier” that gets released in the UK on 29th April. This is first release by Kingdom Come since 2009, although reading the press release the recording is largely the work of frontman Lenny Wolf who recorded all the instruments other than the guitar solos and produced, engineered, mixed and mastered the album.
Wolf’s vocals retain their distinguished, instantly recognisable quality throughout although the tracks vary significantly. “Outlier” is definitely not an album where all the tracks sound the same. I have to admit I’m not overly keen on the extensive use of synthesiser on “Rough Ride Rallye” but other than that there’s little to criticize. Favourite tracks would include “Running High Distortion”, “Let The Silence Talk”, “The Trap Is Alive” and “Skip The Cover And Feel.”
