Steel Prophet

An excellent pure power metal band, Steel Prophet toiled in semi-obscurity for several years before the release Dark Hallucinations in 1999, which won the band critical acclaim. The band mixes an early Fates Warning influence with a more aggressive power metal base to good effect. Vocalist (now ex-vocalist) Rick Mythsiasin frequently reminds one of Bruce Dickinson (occasionally frighteningly so) while at other times he sounds a bit like John Cyriis of Agent Steel. The succeeding albums since Hallucinations follow a similar path, both in style and in quality of music. Steel Prophet still hasn't reached the level of fame that they perhaps deserve, at least partly due to their being American and playing a style of metal that is currently more in vogue in Europe. The band has undergone several major lineup changes over the last few years but continue to persevere.

Recent album: The God Machine, released on April 26, 2019.
