LABEL KEEP ON METAL RECORDS
OUR RATING 82/100
MILLENIUM is another great band born in NWOBHM, which are honored to see alive with a new kick-in-the-teeth album.
AWAKENING is a real awakening in the best way! A job well done and well produced in the best NWOBHM tradition but looking to the future, with a modern feeling and a powerful sound.
We starts our listening with FALSE REALITY..powerful, "melodic" or speedy when you need it!
RISE ABOVE is more modern..direct and with high quality; it reminds us somethin' from band as ANVIL of the modern day.
SEARCHING starts with a great arpeggio before developing itself in somethin'more classic HM; this tune shall be enhanced from a great Maiden's break and a stunning solo.
THE SPELL is a great interlude before the title track, with a stronger sound and modern echoes.
LIES ALL LIES begins heavier, with rumblin'drums..a very interesting track!
THE CALLING starts epic before developing in somethin' less speedy but very powerful, with WITCH HUNT that goes on in the same way.
After the great WHEN MAD MEN RULE and REVOLUTION CALLS, POSSESSED ends this platter in really "possessed" way..A real booth in the teeth!!
MILLENIUM are back, proud of their roots but shifted into the future!
