10 years after their original formation, Seven Kingdoms had become one of the most successful underground power metal band in the US, The band not only became widely recognized for being the support act that toured with Blind Guardian during their 2010 North American tour but they also toured Europe with the likes of Stratovarius and Amaranthe.
Since their 2012 album released, The Fire Is Mine, Seven Kingdoms has been working hard on getting a more worldwide recognition by touring Europe in 2013 followed by a string of shows on the east coast of the United States, then a few shows with Danish metal band Manticora in 2014.
After this, the band decided to concentrate their efforts on writing new material, with the successful response of two kickstarted campaigns, 2016 saw the release of their EP In The Walls, and in 2017 their new studio album Decennium was released. Their hard work and success attracted the attention of Napalm Records that recently signed the band before their return to the North American stages as one of the support bands for Evergrey on their recently finished North American tour.
That tour came over to the valley of the sun where Seven Kingdoms played again after 7 years and to an audience that had been tracking their career since they first came here in 2010 with Blind Guardian. Saying that their show was good is not remotely fair compared how the crowd responded to their show at Joe’s Grotto in Phoenix, AZ.
Before their show here in Phoenix, AZ we had a chat with vocalist Sabrina Cruz about the US tour, Decennium, and their plans for the rest of 2017.
