Cleveland's (England) Millennium enjoyed a pretty rapid rise through the ranks, first coming to prominence (relatively shortly after forming) after deservedly winning a piece on Guardian's inconsistent "Pure Overkill" compilation in 1983. Afforded a very generous allowance of three tracks, the lucky quintet dully delivered "Steal Your Heart","Rock Was Meant For Me" and "Magic Mirror", a capable selection of numbers which stood out in the company of some less than inspiring competition. The talent hungry label was clearly impressed with the cut aforementioned tracks, and soon was given cash for a full album. In fact, each of the aforementioned tacks would find their place of the eponymous debut. The LP received glowing review from Kerrang, the review said: " Millennium contains a generous helping of mid-paced metal occasionally reminiscent of such NWOBHM acts such as Avenger or Duchess; and at times later 80s combos like Desolation Angels and Black Riders.

Many songs have the dual harmonies of bands like Thin Lizzy & Wishbone - heavy yet very melodic. Nice melodic soloing mixed with NWOBHM backing guitar rhythms. Moments of sub-Metallica heaviness appear on "The Devil Rides Out"... this song gets pretty heavy. The mellow song like "The Traveller", "Rock Was Meant For Me" are played with a lot of feeling and passion, awesome early Saxon (think "Frozen Rainbow"), great melodic dual guitars, and the song ends with heavier power chords).

"Steal You're Heart" starts of in a very Germanic fashion (something like mid era Scorpions). Oddly the intro to "Armageddon" sounds like a riff straight off of Satan's "Court in The Act"!, which raises its head throughout the song. "Try To Leave Me" has riffing reminiscent of the 2nd and 3rd Saxon albums, great Bitches Sin type wild guitar solos.

(For fans of Spartan Warrior, Tokyo Blade, Bitches Sin.)

After being blown away by Millenium's Hourglass album, thanks in large part to Jorn Lande's incredible vocal performance, I knew I needed to check out more of the band's albums. Even though I knew Jorn Lande wasn't part of Millenium at the time, I decided to take a chance on their self-titled 1997 debut album.

This is the kind of AOR album that no one in their right mind, especially an American band, should ever have made in 1997. 1987 perhaps, but the years following the alternative rock boom of the early 90's were hardly the optimal time to release an album so obviously inspired by Journey, Foreigner and Bad Company. It's even stranger when you consider founding guitarist and songwriter Ralph Santolla's role with extreme metal pioneers Death. Fortunately there was a steady market for this kind of music in Europe and Japan.

Even though the album pales in comparison to Hourglass, it's still a very solid AOR/melodic rock album. Todd Plant provides vocals for this album, and while he's nowhere near as electrifying a vocal presence as Jorn Lande, he does a good job. Santolla brings some great melodic rock guitar hooks, and has a good grasp for writing this kind of material. It's easy to imagine Eddie Money or Lou Gramm singing some of these songs back in the 80's.
