Biography

Two bands exist called Kingdom Come. For the first, see: Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come. Melodic band Kingdom Come was formed in 1987 by Lenny Wolf in Hamburg, Germany, with the revolving cast of other band members soon leaving Wolf the focus. After the release of their first single, 1988’s “Get It On”, many fans mistakenly regarded the band as a Led Zeppelin reunion. Kingdom Come’s close resemblance to that group, particularly with Wolf’s Robert Plant like vocals, has led to continuing controversy. Although the bands had a great deal in common, as shown by critics’ nickname ‘Kingdom Clone’, Wolf has pursued his own personal vision of mixing slick hooks with a ethos for decades.

The group’s first album, the self-titled ‘Kingdom Come’, became quite popular due to its arena-ready sound. As the guys gained more and more commercial success, the 1988 album had three Billboard top 40 singles: “Get It On”, “Living Out Of Touch”, and “What Love Can Be”. As stated before, supporters and detractors both felt strongly reminded of Led Zeppelin as well as, to a lesser extent, fellow German group Scorpions. Ironically, former Kingdom Come drummer James Kottak later joined the latter band.

    Haven't listened to Kingdom Come in a loooong time. Reacquainting myself today. :) Doesn't matter to me how much they sound like Zeppelin, it was the fact they sounded like them that made me listen in the 1st place! Besides, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Слушал их ещё на компакт кассете МК-60 (: Записывал в студии звукозаписи (школоте не понять). 4 советских рубля – компакт кассета + 10 советских копеек/минута записи = 10 рублей полностью записанная кассета. Времена Электроники-302, эх.

    Они на Scorpions больше похожи, чем на Led Zeppelin (2).

    Awesome band. I disagree with calling them a Led Zeppelin clone. Those who think that should listen more of Kingdom Come. They've got their own style. Some early songs are similar to LZ's style (I'd say. that's how LZ might sound in the late 80's), but no more than that.
