NICLAS ENGELIN JOINS NEW MELODIC ROCK PROJECT GATHERING OF KINGS

 

It is with great pleasure that we can announce our fourteenth king. As one of the guitarists and songwriters, please welcome Mr. Niclas Engelin!

 

Niclas Engelin is most known as the guitarist in the swedish metal band In Flames. Besides In Flames, Niclas also play guitar in Engel and Drömriket. And just like all the other members of Gathering Of Kings, Niclas has a penchant for 80's melodic rock / AOR.

 

Gathering Of Kings can best be described as a swedish AOR/Melodic Rock Phenomena-type-project. The yet untitled debut album will be produced, mixed and mastered by Thomas ”Plec” Johansson (Watain, Onslaught, Scar Symmetry, Solution. 45, The Night Flight Orchestra).

 

Gathering Of Kings have now confirmed the following artists:

I'd actually forgotten it was still a thing. Just as I had already forgotten again since my last post. And I will again once I hit the Post button.

Considering the billion people selected for this project I'm a bit surprised by the vocalist (who???) as I'd not say his voice is great, but otherwise the song sounds pretty damn good.

Personally I love the Dude's voice (Soilwork/NFO)....but then I would ;)

Shows potential, although I expect we'll have to weather 9 more teasers and 37 more press announcements before an album is actually released.

 

Also, if as a "project" it means that there is a different lead vocalist on every track, I'm not sold. If it's this guy on every track, I'm in.

 

That's one reason that concept albums and other project releases with different lead vocalists on each track never resonate with me. All it takes is one or two vocalists I don't like to spoil the entire project. My ears like consistency...

Soilwork? Oh, yuck. I was going to ask what a NFO is, but it's your Night Flight mob, hey? That's a leap from Soilwork to that. And then to this. Either way, not a fan of his vocal.

I love his vocals, and he sounds great on this sample.

 

To be honest the only other vocalist I care for is Martensson, so I agree with Dan's comments - there are 5 vocalists and 3 of them will be a big ?

 

Having said that there should be some keepers on this as Martnesson is involved with the songwriting.

    • Have to agree....Absolutely killer album!  I've been through it a handful of times now and I swear the more I listen, the more I like it.       I don't know if it'll be my top album but it's definitely right there among my favorites this year. Have picked up their last album too and will be checking that out closer once I can get the new one out of my CD player Not sure how these guys slipped under my radar.  Good stuff.
    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.
