Hi, I'm Harry, I live in Hamburg, Germany and I'm new to this forum - but not new to Theocracy's music. If you will I'm a fan of the first hour. Interestingly enough I got to know Matt's first album through Mike Portnoy's website and forum (easy to guess I'm a big DT fan...); I think it was shortly before it was released. I bought the first album, listened to it over and over and over again, gave it to someone else to listen and never got it back. Oh well... Here I am, several years later, have the three albums and am listening on a constant basis, just can't get enough. Matt, and all the others; I just want to thank you for your dedication and for the fact that you are so much willing to be God's instruments (literally) for blessing believers and non-believers alike. Your musicianship, the pure energy you're putting into each song, the power, the vocal harmonies, it just smokes from A-Z. But then the lyrics... I believe, and I can clearly hear, that each of your songs is borne on prayer. Nobody who isn't up to the rim filled with the Holy Spirit can write such God-honoring, Christ-centered, blessed and uplifting songs. As Kerry Livgren says it in one of his songs: "Words of Honour". Each one of them! Thank you for allowing God to speak so mightily through your songs. Some of them have brought me to tears many times because I recognize myself so clearly. Others have lifted me up when I was feeling down and broken. And yet others are just wonderful, glorious hymns of worship and praise to our Lord and Saviour. "Mirror of Souls" is a kind of abbreviated, modern "Pilgrim's Progress" for me, great poetry and deep, biblical truth! Thanks guys - I pray that as you continue to bless others with this wonderful music God may keep blessing you abundantly in every aspect.
