The Christian Progressive Metal band out of Athens, Georgia didn't start as a band apparently, but as a one man operation from Matt Smith, with crunchy guitars, high soaring vocals, furious drumming, and inspirational lyrics. That is all there in their sophmore album, Mirror of Souls, except now there is a full band behind Smith.
This band is what I wanted Stryper to be, but they had to much filler on their albums for my liking. Theocracy may have some filler on thiers, but you will be hard pressed to find it, as they arent aiming for the "pop" audience like Stryper was.
Its also amazing how Theocracy is being acknowledged in the secular world, though the message in their music is clear.
If you go to their website (www.theocracymusic.com/), there is a streaming audio clip you can sample, or you can download some free Christmas music (yeah I know its a little early for Christmas music)
