Seven Kingdoms is an American power metal band from Jacksonville Florida, formed in 2004. Initially, the band is named Aleyiah, after the song "Aleyiah" by progressive power metal group Angra. The band soon gained traction and popularity through their demos and live performances.
In 2008, the band changed their name to Seven Kingdoms, as they felt Aleyiah was no longer representing the overall sound they had developed. The band went on to write and record their debut album, “The Fire Is Mine”, released in 2009, and their follow up album, "Into the Darkness", released in 2011.
When Seven Kingdoms was first formed, the original lineup was comprised of singer Sabrina Valentine, guitarists Keith Schultz and Cam Pipes, bassist Kevin Byrd, and drummer Garrett Peters. Following the release of "The Fire is Mine", Cam Pipes and Garrett Peters left the band, with Bryan Rogers and Lucas Diiorio joining as their replacements. Byrd left Seven Kingdoms in 2014, with Matt Smith taking over on bass. Smith left in 2018, and current bassist, Kevin Kukula, joined in 2019.
Seven Kingdoms is often compared to other power metal bands like Edguy, Angra, and Dragonland. Their music draws influences from classic heavy metal and progressive metal, similar to Stratovarius and Symphony X.
Some of the most popular songs by Seven Kingdoms are “The Fire is Mine”, “Reborn”, “Behind the Mountains”, “Castles in the Sky”, “After the Fall”, and “Cold Winter”.
