Every time I do a review of a band I’ve never heard of before, I like to just dive right into the music. It usually adds another layer of suspense to what I am about to hear, and it makes it that much more exciting. Steel Prophet is set to debut their new album, The God Machine, on April 26th and fans of them are in for a treat. From track one to ten, it’s heavy hitting and energetic to say the least. The Los Angeles based heavy/power metal legends really set the bar high with this release.

Let’s start with the title track, “The God Machine”, and digest it. Steve Kachinsky and Jon Paget kick it off with heavy riffs right out the gate. I instantly know that each track thereafter is going to be a head banger. The riffs are so clean and both of them do a stellar job accenting one another throughout each song. The first track set the tone for what is to be expected later on. I love it when bands start their albums out really strong because it shows me they have so much more to give later on.

I should have expected that Steel Prophet new how to slow things down as well. “Buried and Broken” was a fantastic track to follow the previous heavy hitting tracks because it has just enough grit but really grabs you by the soul. R.D. Liapakis really shows his true talent with this one and does not disappoint. He has such a great voice and I really love what he did with “Buried and Broken”.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with this album and really enjoyed the listening experience. Steel Prophet truly knows how to make a great record and it shows in every song on this release. Fans of the genre are really going to enjoy it when it goes live in late April.
