Whoa. Theocracy vs. Faythe:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9fpNQ67SaE


Welcome to 11 posts ago!

VIDEO SINGLE DROPPED:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9fpNQ67SaE

Is this the album where Theocracy finally impresses Bosk? Stay tuned to this thread...



Considering Bosk is playing bass in the video, there's a good chance!
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Well, since this band sucks, I don't usually follow their thread that closely.

I saw that a few weeks ago. Wished I lived in Wisconsin....(not really), but I wish this was touring. I like Novareign, and I freaking Love Lords Of the Trident.

Why you not come to  Massachusetts??

Hopefully there will be a boot of it. There's nothing on Theocracy out there.

Doubt it will happen, but I'd LOVE to see Theocracy live someday!  One of my favorite bands. Hope they're thinking about their next album.   In the meantime at least I'll get to hear a little of Matt singing on Neal Morse's upcoming musical.

So I just started reading this thread last night and decided to check out a couple songs. I listened to Mirror of Souls, and I Am.
Mirror of Souls is truly epic with Alot of great twists and turns. I noticed the high octane lead guitars more on I Am. 
 Is it just me, or are the vocals always really high in the mix?  I only listened to these songs on my phone so the musical spectrum is likely subdued causing the vocals to cut through too much. So what I'm asking, do the vocals come across that way on a nice sound system?
 
 I can allready tell that there seems to be too many words crammed into these songs which doesn't allow it to breathe. It will take a little getting used to but maybe it's a grower. I won't form my opinion based on these two songs.
  I would like to buy one of their albums, either MOS, or ATWB, or Ghost Ship. Any recommendations?

Honestly, I'd go with Ghostship. It's their most recent, and besides Easter, the Christian leaning lyrics (which are no big deal to me) are not as blatant.

Both Mirror Of Souls and As The World Bleeds are excellent though. I mean, you really can't go wrong.

That would be amazeballs!  I could never get too much Theocracy.  Never heard any Angra songs before, listening to this cover now.  Good stuff.

Their set at ProgPower was so damn good... My only complaint is they didn't play On Eagles' Wings because that is one of my favorite Theocracy songs. But I got Absolution Day, so that was the highlight of the show for me.
From a Mega Man Legends island jamming power metal to a Walrus listening to black metal, I like your story arc.

The highlight for me was Laying The Demon To Rest. It's a decent set, but I Am is like one of my least favorite songs of theirs.

And I'm the reverse.  Laying the Demon to Rest is rather meh, whereas I love I Am.  That vocal speed-fest in the middle was impressive as all hell live.  I told Matt later, 'hell, I can't even read that fast!'

LTDTR is thrash excellence, whereas "I Am" more diverse; I love the Dream Theater section near the end of "I Am." Their best track, though, is "As The World Bleeds." Was that played at ProgPower?

I Am is pretty good, I'm just surprised they ended with it and not, you know... On Eagles' Wings.  :lol

Laying The Demon To Rest was NOT a song I expected them to play. I LOVE that tune and they nailed it. I banged the f out of my head during this set and did not care who was next to me when I was windmilling.  :lol

Snowglobe

Funny, I'm hearing it right now!

Nothing will ever beat Wynter Fever as a Christmas song, but this one isn't bad.

I heard a couple of other songs from them, Laying the Demon to Rest and Betlehem, one day I guess I'll have to check their Mirror of Souls album. Cheesy power metal is not my main musical attraction nowadays but damn, the singer's great.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

No worries. :lol


Really cool to see Neal Morse's involvement in this. He does a great job. Daniel Heiman is amazing on this. Literally the best vocal I've heard from him since Lost Horizon. Matt Smith should write all of his music going forward.
