Mystic Prophecy offer an entertaining slice of cover tunes wit this new album 'Monuments Uncovered'. Instead of paying the typical cover charge and playing Sabbath, Maiden, and Priest cuts, the band turn it upside down by doing mostly older pop and rock songs. I absolutely love the crushing heaviness on stuff like "Hot Stuff" (Donna Summers), "Because the Night" (Patti Smith) and "Proud Mary" (CCR). Riff fanatics will love the treatment of "Are You Gonna Go My Way" (Lenny Kravitz). It's heavily distorted with production emphasis on robust, distorted riffs. It's a great concept and makes 2018 a very fun start.
