    an idiot? hahaha, nah, you're just defending your point of view, i've got no problem with that XD

    well, you seem to be right about persuader, but dark empire's lyrics are more critical about actual situations, like war, people, whatever

    I think it's because Persuader's lyrics are written by Carlsson, whilst DE's are written by the guitarist.
    Man it still bugs me 'cause its the same guy that's singing it :rofl:
    (Oh well, the music is fine, I might as well enjoy it :p)

    Hmm, I don't know about that kind of comparison but I must mention some of the better power metal bands like Aquaria and Hibria.
    They're both fast melodic power metal but with great differences, try 'em both.

    Machinae Supremacy is an alternative power metal band that combines their music with an SID chip to make video game sounds.
    Personal favourite.

    Into Eternity is a progressive death metal band, they play riffs that are borderline power-death, since their main genre is melodic death metal they use a lot of soft vocals that makes them different.

    Oratorio is a nice Christian power metal band with brutal riffs and a vocalist that doesn't deal with high notes (much like Manticora, but Manticora is heavier).

    Outworld is a band that's been in discussion in another topic on this forum, they play really heavy progressive metal and they're pro-atheism (which is the reason I started the discussion :p).


    Try these and let me know :rofl:

    i've already checked them, they are more a progressive rock band, in my opinion, anyway, i've got no problem with that, their latest CD sounds really good, really.......groovy XD

    I'm proud to say I know all of these bands!
    I saw Revelation Project's "Marked" and I was blown away but that's about as everything I've heard of theirs.

    Incrave is really incredible, I agree with Snert, a must try!

    It's a tragedy that this thread has made it this far without making mention of any of the following bands:

    Some religious/spiritually aligned, some not, but all are amazing, and I can't imagine a Theocracy fan NOT liking any of the following:

    In a "band name - album name" format:

    Abydos - Self Titled
    Altaria - Divinity
    Andromeda - Extension Of The Wish
    Aquaria - Uxaeterna
    Asperity - The Final Demand
    Athena - Twilight of Days
    Beyond Twilight - Section X
    Book of Reflections - Self Titled
    Cellador - Enter Deception
    Crystal Eyes - Confessions Of The Maker
    Dark Moor - The Gates Of Oblivion
    Dragonland - Astronomy
    Dreamtale - Beyond Reality
    Dungeon - One Step Beyond
    Evil Masquerade - Welcome To The Show
    Forgotten Tales - The Promise
    Freedom Call - Crystal Empire
    Heavenly - Virus
    Lost Horizon - Awakening The World
    Meduza - Upon The World
    Opus Atlantica - Self Titled
    Power Quest - Neverworld
    Redemption - The Fullness Of Time
    Richard Andersson - The Ultimate Andersson Collection
    Royal Hunt - Paper Blood
    Space Odyssey - Embrace The Galaxy
    Sun Caged - Self Titled
    Suspyre - The Silvery Image
    Timeless Miracle - Into The Enchanted Chamber
    Vision Divine - Stream Of Consciousness


    And if you are willing to free your mind a bit, and try something different (but still amazing), try these:

    Kind of a "futuristic/ sci-fi" sounding type of power/symphonic metal:
    Luca Turilli - Prophet Of The Last Eclipse

    Combine Power Metal, Traditional Metal, Prog, Symphonic metal and folk and celtic music - sing it in Spanish, and you get the following:
    Mago De Oz - Gaia II

    The bad news is that just about all of those bands do not hail from the USA, so if you live in the USA, most of the above CDs are imports and will cost you an arm and a leg unless you get "creative".

    And that is why Theocracy is such an anomaly to me - bands of Theocracy's caliber in this genre of music are VERY far and few in between in the USA, however they are quite plentiful outside of the USA.

    There is a veritable treasure trove of bands from these genres of music outside of the USA. And based on what I am hearing on the latest Theocracy CD, I wouldn't be surprised in the least bit to learn that the members of Theocracy are very much influenced and inspired by such bands.

    Those bands weren't mentioned since they're not Christian in nature so don't get offended :p

    I must agree here, totally!!!! I have loved INCRAVE since the first time I have heard them. The guys are very down-to-earth with a heart of gold. And they put out some awesome music! Emil, at Ulterium Records has a great goup of bands on his label, but Incrave is #1 for me!!

    Oh not offended at all.

    In several previous posts before mine, I saw the following bands mentioned (none of which are Christian bands (or "Christian in nature") as far as I am aware - someone please feel free to correct me if I am wrong):

    Edguy
    Avantasia
    Sonata Arctica
    Dream Theater
    Symphony X
    Rush
    Fates Warning
    Night Wish
    Metallica
    Iced Earth
    Blind Guardian
    Extreme
    Kamelot


    So I figured any band at this point was fair game, so I named a bunch of incredible bands that just about anyone who likes Theocracy would likely also enjoy.

    Thanks for mentioning those.

    I hope this doesn't turn into a "Christians critique every single band mentioned for Christian-nish" forum. I hate that about most Christian Band forums.

    Me: "I love so & so".

    Nitpicker: "You know so & so aren't Christian right?"

    Me: *smacks head*
