Staff review by
In general, when we talk about combos from USA which use to play Power Metal everybody think about bands like Iced Earth first. For sure this is something different of the European trends but of course, USA is so big that it can be possible too to find Power Metal bands a la European sauce and Theocracy is one of them. In the genre I think that the band is good but unfortunately this is also a bit cliché and Theocracy is finally just one other Metal acts which simply play what a lot of other people have already done…

Killer album. I had heard of these guys back in the day, but never bothered to give them a proper listen because of reasons. I seriously should have, because this is pretty much some of the best power metal of the late 2000's. It's also Christian metal, but who cares when it's this enjoyable.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.
