The release date of the STEEL PROPHET vinyl edition “The Goddes Principle” is January 31st, 2014. The exclusive vinyl edition consists of 500 copies (100 splatter and 400 black) and is coming with printed inner sleeve. As a special bonus the splatter vinyls got an additional patch and pin.
STEEL PROPHET were founded in 1983 and are something like a legend for US/Power-Metal gourmets. The band around guitarist Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor and vocalist Rick Mythiasin have now signed a deal with Pure Steel Records. As a prelude to this cooperation we decided to rerelease the legendary debut album “The Goddess Principle” on vinyl (originally released in 1995 by the northern German label Brainstorm Division). This rerelease is a limited edition of 500 numbered copies!
High and distinctive killer-screams that remind one sometimes of AGENT STEEL, breathtaking, sophisticated and unique twin-guitar-solos, sometimes epic abundant song-structures: the features of this album read like a paradigm of our label spectrum. Who once has heard tracks like the seven-minute monument “Reign of Christ” (which will open the B-side on our rerelease), gripping anthems like “Souls Without Honor”, “To Grasp Eternity” and “Parthenogenesis”, or the slightly thrashy tracks “The Inner Voiced Silence” and “Fatal Euphoria”, will understand at once why this band is until now in the hearts of all Keep It True/Headbangers Open Air/Swordbrothers-visitors. Sophisticated lead-passages feature alongside catchy and distinctive choruses, speedy parts are as natural as calm and quiet ones. The production was rather unusual at the time, very basic and earthy, which gives this album a very special appeal.
To put it in a nutshell: “The Goddess Principle” is a must for everyone!
