Power metal band Millennial Reign is back with a new lineup for their third album continuing in vein of previous work.

Dallas Texas-based Millennial Reign traces its roots back to a solo project by founding member and guitarist Dave Harvey.  Writing began in 2010 and over the next couple of years, Dave added a full band and released the self-titled debut in 2012.  In 2015, the band released Carry the Fire on Ulterium Records and then toured with the likes of Stryper, Sonata Arctica, Leaves Eyes, Theocracy, Hammerfall, and Joe Lynn Turner.  For The Great Divide, Harvey added new members Travis Wills (vocals), Steve Nichols (drums), and Neil Bertrand (bass) and had performances recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ty Sims. As they did following their last release, Millennial Reign is scheduled to support Stryper and Hammerfall in June and then will play Mexico for the first time.

As you might expect from a power metal band, the opening track is merely an instrumental to set the tone for the album and while I usually don’t like them, this one featuring a fast, frenetic drum line backing a orchestral section sets up the anticipation very well.  “Break the Tide” starts out with a nice riff accented by keyboards before settling into a choppier section for the initial verse sections and sounding very much like older Queensryche both musically and vocally.  Travis Mills vocals are made for power metal and shows good range and overall tone.  Guitars are prominent in the mix and the keyboards nicely layered in while the rhythm section is also very clear in the mix as one would expect for power metal.  At this point, on first listen, I was pretty sure this was a European band, forgetting that I’ve reviewed some of their earlier releases, so seeing the Dallas, Texas part was a bit of a surprise.  One can easily see why Millennial Reign has supported the bands they have on tour.
