Staff review by

In general, when we talk about combos from USA which use to play Power Metal everybody think about bands like Iced Earth first. For sure this is something different of the European trends but of course, USA is so big that it can be possible too to find Power Metal bands a la European sauce and Theocracy is one of them. In the genre I think that the band is good but unfortunately this is also a bit cliché and Theocracy is finally just one other Metal acts which simply play what a lot of other people have already done…
