    This was a wise decision by the band who have in the meantime
    established an almost unique sound and category which is consequently
    followed on “Savage Souls”. „We have kept our roots and everybody who
    heard the album yet, recognizes it as MYSTIC PROPHECY immediately”,
    says the outstanding Greek vocalist R.D. „Lia“ Liapakis with strong and
    well deserved confidence, “Savage Souls” has a great range of
    varieties, sounds updated and the songs are all darker and more
    aggressive. We still have a melodic edge though without being cheesy at
    all, all in all we are still real METAL!”.

    The fact that MYSTIC PROPHECY were able to establish and even improve
    their level is not the most usually thing – facing the fact that there
    was a lot of stress going on in the last months: guitarist Gus G. left
    Lia and the others some time ago to concentrate on his other band
    Firewind.

    Although the split was done in a friendly and both sided manner it was
    not easy to find a replacement. But MYSTIC PROPHECY never hesitated for
    a second and chose a new double-axe department: the two new guitarists
    are Markus Pohl (known from Symphorce; and longer part of the live
    line-up of MYSTIC PROPHECY) and Martin Grimm (Headstone Epitaph).

    In addition drummer Dennis Ekdahl was more and more busy with his other
    band Raise Hell and also left. New drummer is Matthias Straub from
    Sacred Steel after Klaus Sperling from My Darkest Hate was a member of
    the band for a while.

    The album was recorded and mastered at „Music Factory Studio“ by Lia
    while the excellent mix was done by Fredrik Nordström, whose
    Fredman-Studio is one of the top studios in Europe for years now.

    “We wanted to try something new” Lia explains, “I think the result
    is a very good bridge between classical stuff and modern metal like
    Nevermore play these days”. The songs on the album were written by the
    complete band this time. It is great to see, how well Markus Pohl and
    Martin Grimm have been involved in the band.

    “Both know right from the start how MYSTIC PROPHECY have to sound,
    so they played the perfect way and our special flair remained” says Lia
    proudly after the confusions in the line up left their marks.

    “Savage Souls turned out a little more depressive, as we had quite
    a lot of stress and problems with the many line-up changes. But the
    hard work paid off: the band never sounded that heavy and aggressive.

    Accordingly the lyrics don’t follow a concept as the previous albums
    but refer to environment, polictics and religion – and surely a lot of
    personal stuff, which needs to be reflected when things don’t turn our
    that well”.

    The things will turn very well again at the latest when “Savage Souls”
    is released! Even strict journalists or the writers with the “I heard
    this all before”-attitude will have to accept one fact: MYSTIC PROPHECY
    are one of the leading German , if not European, bands in their genre
    and will break through now with their fourth album. “Savage Souls” is a
    definite highlight!

    Never Ending, Never Ending and maybe Never Ending...
    Thats a great album, but the others are awesome as well.

    I discovered them a few month ago, when I randomly bought 2 cheap albums in a second-hand cd store and it was worth it...

    I would say it is heavier and more thrashy than Firewind.

    I have the new one as well, havent listened to it yet though

    Vengeance is my fave album at the moment. I really like how the band mix the melodic german power metal style with the more heavier US style. I call it Trans-Atlantic Power Metal

    I own their first three or four albums, the ones with Gus G. playing. Quality power metal although still a ways a way from being truly brilliant. Their post Gus. G stuff is a lot heavier I think, which is certainly a good thing. I never heard their last opus though, was that Fireangel?
