Dark Souls and Determination

Comments: 5

Look at the above image, and just TRY to tell me it doesn’t make you think of symphonic metal. Dark Souls is so good. And it inspired not just our music, but our entire career! Let me explain… See, we’ve always had a close relationship to videogames – in fact, the only reason any of us discovered […]

10 Albums That Defined Us

Comments: 4

There’s been a meme going around on Facebook where you share 10 albums that deeply impacted you. So, we figured it could be fun to do something like that too! #1: Nightwish – Wishmaster This was the album that started it all for us! A single random Youtube video, a fan-made music video combining The […]

The New Rock Stars

Comments: 1

If you haven’t already seen it, you might be wondering what the hell is up with the above image. Pictured here is world-touring power metal sensation Dragonforce, along with metal Youtube comedian Steve “Stevie T” Terreberry. At first glance, you might think they’re about as different from each other as it’s possible to be. One […]

The Great “Why”

Comments: 5

If I remember right, it was the fall of 2009. I was a junior in high school, and I’d just started teaching myself how to write music. I dreamed of being a rock star, like any young musician, but the reality of one day “making it” seemed a million miles away. Growing up in the […]

When is a review more than just a review?

Comments: 5

I’ve never been one to put a lot of stock in music reviews. Call me skeptical, but I rarely find myself feeling like the reviewer has truly connected with the music they’re reviewing. Subjective opinions are all well and good, but I feel like some music reviews attempt to box the song or album into […]

Metal Saved My Life

Comments: 295

In some ways, I can barely remember what life was like before Mute Prophet. Such incredible things have happened in the last few years, it almost feels like a completely different existence. In fact, before the band, I’d actually never sung a note! Seriously. So how did I end up singing symphonic metal, of all […]

“No Drummer???” ¯\(°_o)/¯

Comments: 4

The number-one question people ask us is, “Why don’t you have a drummer?” Well, in order to answer that, it’s worth noting that we actually DID, at one point. When Chris and I (Kevin) first started in 2009, his brother actually picked up a super-cheap drum kit and joined us. He’d grown up with us […]

Autumn Without Color

Comments: 3

The lyric, “Autumn without color, snow without footprints,” was the foundation of what might be the saddest song I’ve written, “Gravetender.” I legitimately cried a little bit while recording it – you can actually hear my voice break a little on the chorus line “longing to dream, there at least I have remembrance” – and […]

Studio Shenanigans

Comments: 58

This top-secret video isn’t available publicly on our Youtube channel, only linked here on our website. One of the things that’s so incredible about being an “online band” like we are is that we can share our music with people we’ve never met, sometimes all the way on the other side of the planet. But […]

A Tribute to Our Influences

Comments: 61

Recently, we decided to make covers of some of the songs we’ve always loved. We had so much fun doing this, trying to capture the magic of the originals to the best of our ability, that we wanted to share this with our amazing listeners. Hopefully this wasn’t too ambitious – Nightwish songs aren’t exactly […]
