Mystic Prophecy  


If there's one thing to be said for guitarist Gus G, it's that he's consistent and reliable in his work. The Greek wunderkind emerged from the Euro metal scene a few years ago, and Mystic Prophecy is the third of his bands reviewed here, the others being Dream Evil and Firewind. Apart from all three featuring Gus, the three bands share more in common. One, all three contain other members from established bands, giving them all the feel of side projects, even though this may not be the case for some or even all of them. Two, and most importantly, the three share the same musical style, that being classic 80's power metal, with somewhat of an American sound rather than the rollicking speed/power sound of many contemporary German bands. No, the three bands aren't clones of each other, but clearly they share influences, and will likely share similar fan bases as well. Gus' vocal sidekick here, fellow Greek Dimitri Liapakis, has a strong and steady voice, perfect for power metal, and combined with Gus' predictably fine guitar work and a workmanlike rhythm section, makes this band yet another winner in the Euro metal field.

Update: Apparently Gus G., as well as other members, have left the band as of late. A new lineup (below) soldiers on.
