Mystic Prophecy is present on the power metal scene since 2000 and over the years they earned the title of one of the most talented bands in the genre's history. The exclusive re-release of their second album showcases the amazing skills of the band that

Right from the start, the thing that makes Mystic Prophecy stand out in a very crowded power metal scene is the band’s sheer heaviness and speed. If ultra-melodic and sing-songy Freedom Call is on one end of the spectrum, Mystic Prophecy is about as far to the other end as possible. This is heavy, headbanging power metal that’s close to thrash at times. Gus G. just blazes through these songs with his riffing, and the rhythm section does its best to keep up. There’s a strong melodic side, but it’s the speed and aggression that grab you, not to mention Roberto Liapakis’s strong and powerful vocals. “Lords of Pain,” “Night of the Storm” and “In Your Sins” are the standouts, but the whole album is rock solid.
Regressus is another killer release from a band that’s still too often overlooked in power metal circles. If you prefer your power metal on the heavier side – think Savage Circus, Tad Morose, Iron Fire and Bloodbound – you definitely need some Mystic Prophecy in your collection, and these early releases are a great place to start.
Edition Notes: The limited edition version of Regressus comes in a digipack and features two bonus tracks, covers of Manowar’s “Fighting the World” and Iron Maiden’s “Sanctuary.”
-The singer is really talented and consistant, he also manages not to sound like a woman when he hits those high notes!!(no offence to other PM bands, it goes with the territory!)
-The guitar work is genuinley awesome, with great melodies and riffs that leave u feeling like youve just been hit in the face repeatedley, but for some reason it feels really, really good!!
-the drummer sometimes adds fills (or tries to) that are a bit too extravagant, and are faster than the song requires, but he is none the less awesome!!, i play drums so i know just how hard it is to play what is here on this album! he is one hell of a double kick player!!!, brill!
-Bass player is steady, not given much room for expression but adds neat fills and is clearly heard, (something which is disappearing in metal)
I am a massive Power Metal/Metal fan, my tastes range from Hammerfall(awesome), blind guardian(awesome!), iced earth(awesome!), rhapsody(awesome!), and of course the daddies of power metal, ManOwaR(All Hail). to Megadeth, pantera, iron maiden, machinehead, G n R, pre 1994 metallica, testament, Mushroomhead, Lordi, Saxon, Anthrax and others. My taste in metal/rock, has quite a spectrum, this band will make a excellent addition to my collection. I reccommend all of the above, every album is further proof of metals dominance and superiority over other 'NU', and 'RAP METAL' genres, 'DEATH TO FALSE METAL!'(ManOwaR, gods of metal)
Calling from hell 10/10 - Brilliant power anthem
Eternal Flame 9.8/10 - power metal 101, awesome!
Lords of pain 10/10 - one of my favs, KILL!
Sign of the cross 10/10 - Brilliant guitar work
Night of the storm 10/10 - Another fav, awesome Metal!
The traveller ? - brilliant but much, much too short!, could have been a classic!
In Your Sins 11/10 - awesome track, guitar towards the end is tearjerkingly good and heartfelt, solo absolutely AWESOME
Forgotten Soul 9.8/10 - evil intro guitar, remeniecent of the mighty MACHINE HEAD at parts, cool track
When Demons Return 9.7/10 - awesome intro guitar, drummer seems to rush a bit at parts, Awesome none the less!
Regressus/Lost in Time 10/10 - Intro is spinechilling, really! Power, Metal and Might!
Mystic Prophecy 9.7/10 - Drone thumping kick snare drumming, love the double kick on this one!, more metal than power.
The Land of the Dead /10 - another double kick masterclass(hes pretty good at this!), heavy cool song!!
had gotten the regular CD. Regressus is incredible
Power Metal Excellence. On a scale of amazons' 1 to 5
it is a 10. No keys here my friend. Just rippin power/
heavy/speed Metal. Lyrically it is very aggressive as well.
Comparisons could be made musically to bands like Iced Earth
(at their best) and Gus G,s other band Firewind. But Regressus
takes it to a more powerful higher level. And the production
is over the top. The sound these guys got on this one will
punish you. As Arnold would say "If you do not listen....
Then the He** with You".
