VICTOR PERAINO was the American keyboard player for Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come, a band often overlooked in the pantheon of UK progressives. Following the group's final album "Journey", Peraino returned to the States, and somehow retained the rights to the group name. Details are sketchy, but according to legend only 100 copies of " No man's Land" were pressed making this a major rarity selling for four figures more often than not. A follow-up EP "Were Next", contains a new version of the big hit "Fire", was recorded and released in 1981 which almost just as rare. Both releases were put together on this CD. The vinyl format is a limited 500 copies and contains the 7" EP. Peraino's Mellotron use is, again, quite magnificent, with lashings of strings, choir, cellos and brass all over the album. There are too many individual highlights to name but some of them deserves a special mention: "Lady Of The Morning" has especially good use on all fronts, the brilliant opening "San Sets Sail", the strong "Demon of Love" , with a Deep Purple guitar riff, "Garden of Death", a little in Hawkwind style and "Empires of Steel", the longest track of the album. is a true prog masterpiece. An absolute Mellotron Monster, so highly recommended to all the progressive rock fans. A Gem to discover
