Genres: Power Metal, Progressive Metal

Mystic Force  

A quality power/prog metal act, Mystic Force has toiled in the Baltimore area for several years, with their most recent album (their fourth, not counting a demo re-release) in 2000. Man Vs Machine is quite an accomplished affair, correctly described by others as a heavier Queensryche. For whatever reason they haven't attracted the attention of major indie metal labels, and as such they don't seem well known.
