Mystic Prophecy are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of power and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 compilation "Best Of Prophecy Years" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine power and thrash metal together to create a sound of their own with some melody, soft and clean playing being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding power/heavy metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly clean singing power metal vocals with some more aggressive extreme metal elements being utilized at times as well as a brief use of deep growls, while the lyrics cover darkness, satanic and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Mystic Prophecy are a very great sounding hybrid of power and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eyes Of The Devil" "Across The Gates Of Hell" "Satanic Curses" and "Evil Empire". RECOMMENDED BUY.
