Florida-based, female-fronted power metallers SEVEN KINGDOMS will release their third album, "The Fire Is Mine", on October 9 via Nightmare Records. The CD was recorded in May at Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida with legendary producer Jim Morris (ICED EARTH, OBITUARY, JON OLIVA'S PAIN, JAG PANZER).
According to a press release, "'The Fire Is Mine' shows a great solidification in [SEVEN KINGDOMS'] sound and direction; they've amped up every aspect from songwriting, vocals to production and live performance. This one goes to eleven on all counts — including the number of tracks! The vocals and beautiful crystalline melodies of Sabrina Valentine are uniquely set in a furious power/thrash metal attack, blended with epic choirs and the occasional beer-chanting of the men of SEVEN KINGDOMS."
"The Fire Is Mine" track listing:
01. Beyond The Wall
02. After The Fall
03. Forever Brave
04. Flame Of Olympus
05. Symphony Of Stars
06. The Fire Is Mine
08. Fragile Minds Collapse
09. In The Twisted Twilight
10. A Debt Paid In Steel
11. The King In The North
The "After The Fall" video premiered this past weekend at the ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta, Georgia and can now be seen below.
Says the band: "We are beyond stoked to finally unleash our video. We have been working very hard on this record for over a year and this is the first public release of the new material that we have poured our hearts and souls into. We bleed power metal and hope it shows. Big thanks to our director, Dan Drescher, for his awesome work on 'After The Fall'!"
SEVEN KINGDOMS's sophomore album was released in July 2010 via Nightmare Records.
Formed in Deland, Florida in 2007 by Camden Cruz and Bryan Edwards, SEVEN KINGDOMS entered Morrisound Recording in Tampa in August 2007 to record its debut self-financed independent release, "Brothers of the Night", which was lyrically inspired by the literary works of George R. Martin.
After playing shows throughout the Southeastern region of the United States with such bands as SONATA ARCTICA, THE AGONIST, STEPHEN PEARCY and CIRCLE II CIRCLE, SEVEN KINGDOMS returned to Morrisound in 2009 to begin work on its self-titled sophomore effort.
