CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
"OMNISCIENT" is a Classic Metal CD from the U.S. Progressive Power Metal band
STEEL PROPHET. The line up includes Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor (guitarist and
founding member) and by veteran Metal singer Rick Mythiasin. The recording lineup is
Vince Dennis (bass), Chris Schleyer (guitar), and Jimmy Schultz (drums); after the
recording original drummer John Tarascio, and guitarist John Paget returned to the band
together. Monster riffage that's very 80s as usual. The vox are clean and has some grit to
them. Really amazing voice. Kind of like an aggressive IRON MAIDEN sound. Track
13 is a cover of QUEEN's "Bohemian Rhapsody" done very well with all the opera
voices and killer lead we all know & love. A true ballsy attempt that works. And the last
track, wow, such a weird off-beat mish mash of craziness Metal way far out in left field.
It is still good, but just a surprise how it ended. This release was in limited edition 36
page digi book, regular compact disc, limited gate-fold double LP and digital download.
This band has been around for a while and progress just shows how bad ass they are.
Unfiltered and never looking back. STEEL PROPHET is still delivering the great
Metal and I hope they still continue for years to come.
