Mystic Prophecy - Satanic Curses
In the year 2000 a band was formed and they called themsleves Mystic Prophecy. The band consists of a Greek vocalist together with Germans. I am not known with the earlier works of the band but they already got an album released in 2001. And when I count their releases this "Satanic Curses" set the total on 5 full lengths. What I hear on this album is a combination of power metal with a touch of thrash. The vocals are clean and powerful and few times combined with a grunt. The songs are melodic and in up tempo and have catchy multi vocal chorusses. The guitars are rough and have that thrash touch and nice leads. But what I heard was not innovative. Ofcourse it is well played and powerful but you have heard it all before but that counts for almost every release these days. But when you like rough power metal you can take this one for sure. And when you buy the digipack you get a code to download a live album as a bonus.
