Dreamhunter - 2000 Kingdom Come


DREAMHUNTER - KINGDOM COME (2000, Z RECORDS)
Stig Gunnarsson - vocals
Olle Zimmerman - guitars
Peter Otterborg - bass
Thomas Lassar -keyboards
Perry Karlsson - drums


Background
One of the better bands on the Z Records label are these bunch of Swedes called Dreamhunter. Hard hitting, and definitely providing some sonic highlights on this platter 'Kingdom Come'. They're caught somewhere between the melodic vice of fellow Swedes Dalton and the high octane energy of German rockers Boysvoice. It's a pure 80's style melodic hard rock romp, with enough testosterone to fill the supermarket aisles.

The Songs
Admittedly, it's not earth shatteringly original, but boy it sure stands out from the rest of the mire out there, and it's a fun, infectious album that's guaranteed to provide you with many highlights. Catchy songs, great guitars, nice keyboard touches, and played with power and conviction. I wonder what would have happened if these boys were on the scene 15 years earlier? They would have been in their prime. In any case, you get the full range and diversity within these eleven tracks from heart rendereing ballads with awesome keyboards like the brilliant 'You Take My Breath Away', to the maxxed out guitar on 'Tell Me Why', and 'Night After Night'. Or better yet there is the melodic splendor of the title track 'Kingdom Come', 'When Heaven Calls Your Name' and the euro parp of 'Anyway You Want It'.

In Summary
Yep, this album is well worth a mention, and hopefully they can build on this effort with their impending new release 'Bad Attitude' coming out during May 2001.
