Mystic Prophecy is a veteran German Power/Traditional Metal band, and Killhammer is their 8th studio release. Although German Power Metal is typically defined by Helloween’s and Gamma Ray’s unpolished and dirty sound, Mystic Prophecy is a bit more Progressive and Thrashy … similar to American Power Metal acts like Iced Earth. Overall, this latest release features a “wall of sound” filled with crunching, prominent guitars, powerful drumbeats, and high-energy melodies and rhythms. Fans of aggressive Traditional Metal and German/American Power Metal should find plenty to smile about within Killhammer … the only notable shortcoming being Roberto Dimitri Liapakis’ vocal performance.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
