I’ve had the bootleg version of this 1981 Rockpalast show for many years and am glad to see that it’s finally coming out officially. It’s a great show. It always made me giggle that the bootleg had Angel of Death listed as “Desaster”. It made me giggle even more to see that the official version kept the title the same.
If you like Thin Lizzy, this is a must have. Snowy White on guitars with Gorham. Lots of cool tracks on here too like Memory Pain(!!!), Got To Give It Up, Hollywood, Desaster and Chinatown. Can’t wait to get the official version in my hands. Release date in the USA is November 10, 2009.

Yep. Kelz made for me a compilation tape around 1997 that had some cool stuffs on it like Custard, Tension, Skullview(!) and some other stuff that escapes me right now. I listened to that tape all the friggin’ time until I got a car in 2000 that didn’t have a cassette player. So I saw that Sentinel Steel Records had Kingdoms of Your Life on CD and picked it up promptly. He always has cool stuff and I recommend you checking it out if you’re even mildly into Power Metal.
Custard hails from Germany and are apparently still together but I am pretty suer that this CD is out of print, that’s why I am posting it here. Fading Memories is the only song I can’t get into. This is good straight up power metal. The singer’s range isn’t that great but it’s very listenable. Failed Mission is easily my favorite. They have little bit of Maiden, Helloween, Accept etc in their sound.
I never bothered to check out their other albums, likely out of fear of disappointment.
On a scale of 1-5, this gets an easy 3.75.
