Winter’s Verge

Power / prog metal form Cyprus

Just released their third album Beyond Vengance in April 2012
Been around since 2004
They state they are the premiere power/progressive band from Cyprus … I guess there aren’t that many of them round out there 🙂
The turning point of their career was their support tour of Stratovarius in 2009

I think their music is awesome, at least the new material is, check it out! Well worth a listen and more

Mystic Prophecy

Power metal band from Germany

Mystic Prophecy have released 7 CDs during the past eleven years

their style is solid metal, nice guitar work, nice vocals, some good melodies, no synths (at least on this album)

I bought their album Fireangel (2009) that came with a bonus CD with some live tracks. I feel it is a little uninspired though there are a few quite good tracks, but it made me neither inclined to check out their latest release Ravenlord (2011) nor to see them play live. If there are any fans out there I’d love you to write a guest post about their latest album
