Steel Prophet

Messiah

Nuclear Blast

Do you like Crimson Glory? Listen to Steel Prophet. How about Hammerhead? Steel Prophet will give ‘em a run for the money. Steel Prophet are from Europe, where this type of metal is extremely popular. So what type is it? Let me explain. You take 4 classically trained musicians, add a superb singer, add some aggression and bone-crushing melodies, and you have Steel Prophet.

Some listeners might find the music a little daunting, challenging, or over his/her head to listen to. Even as a guitarist, I can attest to this. But, if you are up to it, give it a spin.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
