    I only recently became a Steel Prophet fan. About a year ago heard the excellent cover of Iron Maiden's Ides Of March / Purgatory, and I picked up Messiah. Put the CD in and I was hooked :D

    From there on my addiction, as it may be, just got worse and I'm happy to count Steel Prophet as one of my favorite bands (In a tie with Iron Maiden, which I'd imagine few of you are strangers to :) ). And indeed, the two items I'm proudest of in my collection are a vinyl copy of Eyes Of The Prophet and a near-perfect copy of Inner Ascendance I found not too long ago.

    So I just thought I'd drop in and say hello to everyone. :wave:

    And by the by, my name is Derek. :)

    Hey Derek, welcome :headbang:
    I'm Janet and I've known the name Steel Prophet since 1984....way back. I got turned onto them by one of the co-founders (and presently, guitar player) of the band...Steve.

    So what do you think of Eyes of the Prophet? I too have the vinyl (one blue and one white). My oldest item from the SP memorabilia is a demo tape I won on e-bay dating back to 1983, but my first original was a tape given to me by Steve. Oh those were the days :erk: Oh well.....

    Well, that's quite a way to get into the band. :tickled: Well, as it's been said it's quite something for a fan to listen to. The audio quality can vary, but it's pretty cool. I've got a white copy myself.

    Haha, they always are "the days". Makes me feel awfully young too :p Better late than never though.

    Well hello and welcome to our little space in cyberland :wave:

    Cool way to get into the band... Iron Maiden being my favorite band of all-time... oh yes, Maiden freak reporting for duty here! :headbang: :lol:

    It's great to see another devoted SP fan here... hope you enjoyed the "Unseen" lyrics posted in here... Janet, Suze and Steve gave it a go!

    My first SP album was Dark Hallucinations... and to this day it is still my fav

    Yeah, I may have been around at the beginning of SP, but I missed the days which had the greats like The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin...etc.

    I think Steve said most of those songs on Eyes of the Prophet were taken from the demos or the actual CD. Should try to get your hand on the DVD that has the videos (Beware). It's pretty freaky to see Steve w/ long hair (now having close to none) and Vince back then....

    Hey you!!!! Welcome to the board.......!!! Always cool to have another fan on board!!!! I go back in the day with Steve, about 22 years now, and we all can't wait for another CD, esp with this vocalist! So cool you got hooked! SOME of my fave's are Fates Warning, Trouble, Savatage, Iron Maiden, JP, that type of stuff, but also into progressive stuff heavily and old Sabbath, Purple, Aerosmith, Dio, that type of stuff.....Cheers!!!!

    I got into them about 1998/1999 same time as Prototype.. It was on the Judas Priest Tributes then Maiden ones that I really got into them. Their Fade to Black cover was better than the original IMO.. They are on a lot of Dwell's tribute albums. nothing but superb talent is this band.

    Exactly. I am vehemently anti-metallica since I grew up. After age of 15 they werent doing it for me anymore. I need more SP albums.

    I didn't like Metallica in the beginning. I got into them around when they finally took a dive with "Metallica". So I got the first four albums and forgot about the future. I still love to spin the classics, it's sad how they sunk but I can't deny their importance in metal history and the quality of that old material.
