Millennya biography
MILLENNYA are a Norwegian band who blend pomp melodic rock, prog and pure modern pop; imagine a mixture of SAGA, ASIA, TOTO, A.C.T., RUSH and MARILLION if you can. The five members, who got together in 1994, come from various musical backgrounds and seem to know their chops. Their keyboard player Ove Bjorn Wilson was formerly with prog metal band SEA OF DREAMS and is now playing with another metal outfit called MAYAH, as is their guitarist Orjan Risa Svensen. They released a single album in 1998 titled "Time Has Come", but it is said that a six-track demo is currently being shopped to various labels for future release.

"Time Has Come" is quite an impressive debut album. It is filled with catchy melodies, great musicianship featuring lots of keyboards, superb vocal harmonies, and contains hardly any filler. The guys also work out some intriguing arrangements, which is probably what justifies their 'prog' label - call their music 'catchy prog' if you will. Lead vocalist Jens Hetland Hagli has a husky voice that has been compared to JOURNEY's Steve Perry, although Hagli's is deeper and without Perry's higher range. The production is surprisingly very good for an independent release.

Recommended if you like progressive AOR.

3 stars A totaly unknown and obscure progressive rock/AOR band from Norway with one album released so far in 1998 named Time has come. A good debute, with catchy melodies, nice choruses, good musicianship on every tune, pomp prog arrangements very much what Asia, Toto, Journey done decades ago and with nods towards Saga or A.C.T in same time. The vocal harmonies provided by Jens Hetland Hagli are quite good and fiting here perfectly. Not very much is known about this band who gone under the radar and remains unnoticed for many listners. Is intresting that first half of the album is the weaker one, or better said the most unintresting one with almost AOR pieces, but the rest of the half from Storyteller to the last piece Long hard fall is far more on the prog side, there is almost some flute as far as I hear on No guts, quite good. All in all a decent album, but far from being something groundbreaking. 3 stars, good but really nothing more.

5 stars This album is awesome. Nice prog rock, soft but still with influences like Dream Theater. Wilson and Svensen from Millenya have joined Haarr, Lynwood Foss and Kleppe from former Sea Of Dreams (N).

These days they are making new material for their new band Mayah, and hopefully we will hear more from these gays soon!

Both Millennya (Time Has Come) and Sea of Dreams (Dawn Of Time, Land Of Flames) is strongly recommended.

5 stars The time has come for the debut CD from a Norwegian AOR band called MILLENNYA. This debut has world-class qualities when it comes to pompous melodic rock with some hard rock and progressive tendencies. You instantly get to think about bands such as A.C.T., ARENA, ASIA, BOSTON, CANNATA, JOURNEY, MAGNUM, MARILLION, QUEEN, SAGA, TALISMAN and TOTO when trying to describe their music. Once in a while you also get to think about more progressive bands such as DREAM THEATER, PINK FLOYD and RUSH. There are plenty of good melodies, vocal harmonies and catchy choruses on this album. The vocalist Jens Hagli is great and his voice is a mix between Steve Perry of JOURNEY and Steve Hogarth of MARILLION. Both the compositions, production, cover artwork and CD-package is very professional. I can't pick out any favourite tracks, as all of them are so very good. An astounding debut album in the progressive AOR genre, and one of the better privately released albums in 1998. Get these guys a record deal! Highly recommended!
