I hadn't listened to Mystic Prophecy for about 8 years, since Never Ending came out. I wasn't too impressed with that release as it just didn't do anything for me so they kind of fell off of the radar for me... Well, fast forward to this week. I had bought a couple of other power metal discs and this one came up as recommended. Always willing to give a band another shot, I listened to the samples on here and was immediately hooked. The samples are great, but are mere teasers to how great this CD really is. There's a mix for just about every metal fan on this release, from melodic to death to speed. MP throws everything at you, usually all in one song, and it comes out as an unapologetic full force metal feast! The guitar playing is incredible, the vocalist has a great metal voice and throws in a few death growls to spice things up, the production is pristine, and the songs are out of this world!! Includes a cover of Ozzy's Miracle Man that can't be missed!!! If you like bands such as Testament, Primal Fear, Vicious Rumors and the like, you'll eat this up!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
