Theocracy ‎–Mirror Of Souls dlp


In stock


Double album on black vinyls with gatefold cover. Limited 500 copies

Theocracy is a fantastic band, combining the best from power metal and the most interesting from the progressive genre to create an epic album that sounds like Dream Theater mixed with Sonata Arctica. Sounds somewhat godly, right. Well, of course it does. In Mirror Of Souls, Theocracy ditches the drum machine and also takes a huge step forward in production and song-writing. Mirror Of Souls is undoubtedly a stronger album than their self-titled debut. Some of the songs on Mirror Of Souls deviate more into the pure power genre while others takes a turn into the progressive path. The third songs Laying The Demon To Rest and the last song Mirror Of Souls are the most obviously prog inspired tracks. Laying The Demon To Rest has the good length of almost ten minutes while Mirror Of Souls is over twenty minutes long. The entire album has an overall time of 1 hour and 8 minutes which is perfect since it never gets dull. The title-track is also probably one of the best power metal songs written. Absolution Day is a very poppy track so if you’re not a fan of that I give you a warning, but it shouldn’t be the biggest problem since whatever you may thing of more poppy power metal tracks, Mirror Of Souls doesn’t fail to deliver. The fourth track called Bethlehem is a Blind Guardian style ballad. It has an acoustic intro and when about half the song has passed it deviates into a great, but a somewhat cheesy and slower yet powerful song.
