Missa Mercuria is a progressive metal project which involved members of the German bands Vanden Plas, Pink Cream 69 and Silent Force.

The album released by the project is a rock opera based on an idea and story by Karin Forstner and issued through Lion Music in 2002. The story revolves around the intervention of the Gods - represented by the four elements Fire, Water, Earth and Air - to prevent the destruction of Mankind and on the mission of the Gods' messenger Mercuria back in time.[1]

It features lyrics written by D. C. Cooper and music written by Alex Beyrodt (Sinner, The Sygnet, Silent Force, Voodoo Circle), Günter Werno and Stephan Lill (Vanden Plas) and Alfred Koffler (Pink Cream 69). There are also vocal features of David Readman (Pink Cream 69), Andy Kuntz (Vanden Plas) and Sabine Edelsbacher (Edenbridge).[2]
