From the first soaring chorus of opener Mystic Seven, it’s clear that Legacy Of Supremacy are well named in homage to the legacy of supreme melodic rock and roll that once ruled the hearts and minds of the world’s youth.

Recorded, mixed and mastered in frontman Jacob Kenny’s home studio, this second album is a polished, anthemic record boasting big fat riffs, and bigger, fatter hooks, modelled on the likes of Journey, Boston and Def Leppard’s glory days.

Written with fellow guitarist Curtis Sucksmith, Legacy Of Supremacy’s songs are instantly likeable and tailor made for the energy of a huge appreciative crowd, especially Against The World and the power ballad Goodnight Lady Of The Damned, whilst school-leavers memoir of debauchery Haze Of Black & White is a party unto itself.

The raw talent of all four members is obvious, and Kenny and Sucksmith’s songwriting impressive. It would be nice to think that next time round the ride they could engage a producer to boost the songs from good to great, in the same way that Mutt Lange worked his magic for Def Leppard, or Mike Stone & Kevin Elson boosted Journey’s biggest hits.

The modern music industry isn’t shaped that way, though, and as a purely self-contained, self-financed and self-made act, Legacy Of Supremacy have done an excellent job in crafting an AOR album this good all by themselves.
