Editorial Reviews

Sweden s Last Kingdom's style combines driving, melodic Power Metal components with symphonic keyboards, pleasing and multi-faceted vocals without relegating the most important weapon in the Heavy Metal artillery, the guitar, to the background. Chronicles Of The North is played down to the last detail with blood, sweat and a love of Heavy Metal. All nine tracks suit each other perfectly and give us an overall picture of a band which knows what it wants to achieve and what it can do best: brilliant Melodic Metal with symphonic/hymn-like elements. And that is what "Chronicles Of The North" is all about!

Format: MP3 Music
Chronicles of the North is the debut album from Swedish power metal band Last Kingdom, a recent signing to the Limb label. Between this album and Dragony's Legends, Limb seems hell-bent on pretending the last dozen or so years never happened. Seriously, Chronicles of the North could have been released back in the label's heyday alongside the debuts from Rhapsody, Mob Rules and Black Majesty.

Last Kingdom is serving up some Nordic-flavored, but very traditional power metal here, not unlike what Insania did with their World of Ice album. Chronicles of the North is an ultra-melodic power metal album with plenty of catchy hooks, sing-along melodies, blistering solos (not Dragonforce fast, but pretty darned speedy), plenty of keyboards and soaring, dramatic vocals; somewhere between early Labyrinth and Luca Turilli's solo work. Top it off with a frosty production job worthy of Sonata Arctica or Stratovarius and you've got an album that absolutely screams 1999.

Even if it is completely dated, Chronicles of the North is a solid enough power metal album, and there are probably enough fans of the late `90s power metal boom that will be all over a band like Last Kingdom. Grab your flowing shirt, velvet cape and plastic sword and party like it's 1999!

If you like melodic power metal, this is a good listen. No there no bad tracks on this album. Although the lyrics are not incredible in depth, they are catchy and the melodies will have you singing along.
