THEOCRACY “As The World Bleeds”

“As The World Bleeds”
(Ulterium Records)
There are times when I feel like I’ve been living under a rock for many years. All of a sudden a band comes along that are well and truly far into their career and I have never heard of them. In those moments I realize that I have no great overlook on what is new and what is not new in the world of metal. There are simply too many bands to have full control of who’s releasing what. Theocracy are on their third album now and I have no clue as to who they are or what they play. Given what I’ve heard so far (this album alone) I feel that I’ve missed out on a great metal band. This is heavy metal with a symphonic touch to it. Big choruses and grand melodies that make me think old Rhapsody and Blind Guardian in their most grandeur moments. Not so much an American touch as a European one. Something that I like. Through in some progressive touches too and you get a pretty great record from a band I did not know of prior to receiving this album. Anders Ekdahl
