The US power metal band Millennial Reign will release their new album “The Great Divide” on May 25th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, LP and digital. The LP edition is strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide.
The album features new members Travis Wills [vocals], Steve Nichols [drums] and Neil Bertrand [bass] together with founding member Dave Harvey [guitars].“The Great Divide” is the follow-up to “Carry The Fire”, the label debut for the Swedish label Ulterium Records. Since the release of “Carry The Fire” the band toured with Stryper on their “To Hell With The Devil 30th anniversary tour” as well as supported bands like Sonata Arctica, Leaves’ Eyes, Theocracy, Omnium Gatherum, Hammerfall and Joe Lynn Turner.
“The Great Divide” feels like a more focused and powerful album than its precursor and the new vocalist Travis Wills [Infidel Rising] really shines through the album with his raw and emotional vocals. Fast, catchy songs like ‘Break The Tide’ and ‘Imagine’ are mixed with epic songs like ‘Till The End’ and ‘Wounds In Hand’ and together they form a great collection of songs.
“The Great Divide” is a really strong US power metal album that should be perfect for fans of bands like Queensryche, Crimson Glory, Stryper and Theocracy!

Millennial Reign was formed as a solo album project by ASKA bassist, Dave Harvey and the self-titled debut album was released independently in 2012. After new members joined Millennial Reign the decision was made to make Millennial Reign a full band, rather than just a recording project. “Carry The Fire” was mixed and mastered at Nomad Studio [King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus, Absu] and the artwork was created by Felipe Machado Franco [Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Theocracy].
