Kingdom Come: Perpetual

Once upon a time, Kingdom Come was the world's best Led Zeppelin tribute band, even securing the opening slot on 1988's high-profile Monsters of Rock tour with Van Halen, the Scorpions, Metallica and Dokken - I was there, opening day, Alpine Valley, East Troy, Wis. Kingdom Come's novelty soon wore off, however, and the poor reception post-debut Kingdom Come albums received proved that the music-buying public didn't particularly want to hear an unoriginal Zep clone. But Kingdom Come kept making albums - at least eight of 'em, most released only in frontman Lenny Wolf's native Europe - until the band dissolved into the lone Wolf (who, by the way, still sounds more like Robert Plant than Robert Plant does today). While the messy Wolf-produced sonics enhance the mood that the heavy, sludgy, spacey mid-tempo music on Perpetual tries to convey, it all just seems a bit too derivative. I have no doubt that Wolf feels passionate about his music, as it's often delivered with impressive fervor. Maybe another name would have worked better for this project. Right now, though, I'm sorry, Lenny, Kingdom Come already came - a long time ago.
