Mystic Prophecy is a power metal band from Bad Grönenbach, Germany. Their sound is described as hard and melodic, similar to American power metal bands such as Iced Earth, due to the melodic riffing and powerful use of drumming.


The band was formed in 2000 by Valley's Eve bandmates R.D. Liapakis and Martin Albrecht. Gus G. was recommended to them by David T. Chastain and played all guitars on the three first albums, but left in 2005 in order to spend more time on his own band Firewind.

Since then the band had several changes in its line-up with singer R.D. Liapakis and guitarist Markus Pohl who has joined the band in 2005, being the only long-time members.

The band's latest line-up includes bass player Joey Roxx and drummer Hanno Kerstan. In August 2017 the band announced new guitar player Evan K.

Since 2001 the band has released 9 albums. Last album 'Metal Brigade' was released in 2016 with Massacre Records.
