4.0 out of 5 stars Hard hitting German power metal. 24 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
Mystic Prophecy has been on the German music scene since 2001, having sizeable success mainly in their homeland as well as Europe. For those of you that are familiar with the power metal family tree, then the name Gus G will be recognizable to some as Mystic Prophecy was once home to this talented guitarist who left in 2004 to pursue a career with his other band, Firewind. After Gus G departed, his worthy replacement was Martin Grimm (guitars) who joined founding members and song writing duo, Roberto Liapakis (vocals) and Martin Albrect (bass). Year 2007 heralds in the new album titled `Satanic Curses' and is a mere continuation of where 2006's `Savage Souls' left off.

As usual, they play straight forward European power metal, albeit on the heavier side than most power metal bands, having not digressed too much during their five album tenure. The tried and test formula of simple song structures and the intro-bridge-chorus-bridge-chorus-solo and chorus are still present. Unfortunately, this does limit the band and I do feel that it gives the music a very tedious feel from album to album, as the songs sound all too familiar and tiresome. Notwithstanding, Mystic Prophecy are a superb band, capable of delivering a very fierce blend of power metal with all individual players stamping their mark on the music. Liapakis' vocals are cleanly sung, but sit in the lower mid-range, adding a vocal `stretch' with his phrasing in places. He does possess a very flat sounding voice, but this is not a detraction from the overall feel of the music as he can add a great deal of variety to the choruses.

The choruses are a pivotal part Mystic Prophecy's sound and they have a very catchy and memorable side to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome power/thrash metal 27 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This out of all the mystic prohecy albums which i have heard is their greatest effort by far and it doesn't disapoint at all, it is some very hard, fast and powerful music, im suprised that they are not a more recognised band as this is one of greatest metal albums i have ever heard which is probably only a ripple in the ocean but still i would highly recommend it to anybody who wants some excellent music which you can't help but headbang to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystic Prophecy's Heaviest Outing 9 Nov 2007
By A. Capistrant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mystic Prophecy

Satanic Curses (2007)

I have always enjoyed Mystic Prophecy and will continue to do so. The Prophecy returns with "Satanic Curses".

This is the second album without shredder Gus G., but I hardly noticed. Mystic have taken a new level of music to achive a excellent level of heaviness. Like the opening track, "Back From the Dark" features some awesome riffing. This is an excellent start. I however was a bit bored with "Sacrifice Me" as it does get tedious. Nothing really stands out there. "Dark Forces" signals a heavy return as well as the title track. Notice the riffing and total crushing guitars whaling on the listener like a wrecking ball!

Mystic Prophecy nearly became a death/thrash band with the opening of the track: "Evil of Destruction". Intense drumming and intense shredding all out! I enjoyed "Demon's Blood" as is a effective heavy metal track and "Damnation" just flat out rules.

However, I could not enjoy "Rock The Night". I would expect this from a 80's band or something but Mystic Prophecy? The lyrics are just not would the listener would ever expect. "We Will Survive" is another effective slab of heavy metal and the final track, "Grave of a Thousand Lies" is a decent closer.

Digipack bonus: Paranoid and We Fly. Mystic does well with a fine Black Sabbath cover and We Fly is basic Power Metal. Paranoid has not sounded that heavy!

The Production is clear and the music is the heaviest Mystic has ever gotten.

Cover art: Awesome.
Choice cuts: The title track, Evil of Destruction, Dark Forces
Forgettable ones: Sacrifice Me, Rock The Night
The Final Verdict: Recommended. Killer. Fans will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars METAL PERFECTION 15 Nov 2012
By jimthar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this album is absolute metal perfection. im listening to it for the second time today as i write this. it's fast and heavy as hell. a great blend of thrash and power metal, so, if you're a fan of these genres, this album should more than make you happy. the musicianship is to notch and the vocals by R.D. Liapakis are stellar! he is one of the best vocalists in all of metal nowadays.
the packaging is also very well done. with fantastic artwork, lyrics, and pictures printed on glossy heavy stock paper.
the only small flaw with the cd is the cover of 'paranoid' by Black Sabbath. i wasn't really feeling that one. but that is a small and irrelivant blemish on a cd of this magnitude.
this album will not disappoint on any level. if you're a serious metalhead looking for a cd to kick your ass again and again, get SATANIC CURSES. you'll thank me later, i guarantee it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid... few Drawbacks 20 July 2009
By avgvstvs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my first ever Mystic Prophecy album, and I must say that overall I am impressed. The typically overdone vocals of most power metal are more subdued and mixed with some more angry growls here and there, leaving a very palatable mix between classical metal and Bay Area Thrash--or late Bathory--take your pick! The clean vocals are much more akin to Falconer in timbre, rarely moving into the piercing category.

While most PM bands try to stay away from occult themes, this album (obviously) dives right in and gets dirty... this isn't an album for the theologically light-hearted. The title track begins with an aptly snakelike melody that builds into a classic thrash outing. The song "Sacrifice Me" is also worthy of mention being one of the most melodic thrash-style songs I've ever heard. I like slow doom-grooves and the song "Demon's Blood" gives me exactly this, conjuring a mood Moonspell fans would love. And for your Slayer-types, the aptly titled "Damnation" is a mix of Slayer and death metal ferocity. There is nothing about this disc I can find lacking... and I'm a harsh critic.

It's only real drawback is that it doesn't work too hard to push the boundaries of power metal... except for the fact that its a completely unique take on the genre. In short this is one of the best (and heaviest) albums in the genre of power metal and belongs on the top shelf along with Firewind and Dragonforce.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good CD! 3 Jun 2009
By Keith DFW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good power metal CD. As of now, this is the only disk that I own of these guys. A friend of mine from Germany turned me on to this band with one song on a mixed CD in his car. I am looking forward to hearing there new one!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not their best by far! 28 Dec 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have all of MP's albums. This is not their best.
This is not their heaviest either. Most of the songs
sound alike, with very little separating them.

Guitar solos & riffs are ALMOST non existant here.
They are there, but nothing like their last release:
Savage Souls!

They could do SO much better than this. Disappointed!
