THEOCRACY – celebrate release of new album »Mosaic« with lyric video for opening track ‘Flicker’ and performances at Loud And Proud Festival!

“Suffice to say, the long wait has proven to be more than worth it for THEOCRACY fans, as »Mosaic« is arguably the band’s best work to date, so much so that I’d even go as far as to consider it the band’s magnum opus, at least at this point in their career.”
MYGLOBALMIND.COM, Travis Green – 10/10 Points

“If you’re looking for an epic, complex but still catchy power metal record
full of superb melodies und beautifully dramatic arcs of suspense,
there’s no way around »Mosaic« and THEOCRACY’s discography in general.”

EARSHOT.AT, Max Wollersberger – 9/10 Points

“With this milestone, THEOCRACY surpass
each and every stratosphere boundary.”

SAITENKULT.DE, Markus Gps – 9,5/10 Points

“Matt Smith and THEOCRACY used those seven long years to deliver an album that is incredible and easily stands at the top of their catalog, offering something for even the most disinterested listener to enjoy and appreciate.”
LOTSOFMUZIK.COM, William Outzen – 9/10 Points

“20 years after their debut, THEOCRACY present themselves better than ever
and return to the picture with a great album.”

METALITALIA.COM, Elio Ferrara – 8/10 Points

“…it’s better than »Ghost Ship« with several
“Song o’ the Year” contenders that will make you a believer.”

ANGRYMETALGUY.COM, Steel Druhm – 3,5/5 Points

“It’s possible to write a masterpiece,
but five in a row is a thing that doesn’t happen very often:
Matt Smith accomplishes this feat masterfully!”

The day has come – THEOCRACY have risen after 7 years of musical silence to offer their new album »Mosaic« to the world! While the band are set to celebrate its release on stage at Loud And Proud Festival (Betzdorf, DE; this weekend, they also want to share their new music, which has been praised highly by press, with listeners in other places simultaneously. That’s why the US progressive power metal outfit have prepared a lyric video for opening track ‘Flicker’ which was crafted by Ingo Spörl at Hard Media ( and can be viewed on YouTube via the link below.

Lead vocalist Matt Smith states: “‘Flicker’ was one of the first tracks written for the »Mosaic« album. A fish-out-of-water tale of brutal honesty, the lyrics are a bit more straightforward and candid than usual from me, but that’s what felt most authentic in the moment. Musically, it’s aggressive, melodic, and fast, and sits somewhere slightly different for us, I think. It seemed like an obvious choice for the opening track of the record.”
