    Top class US-Powermetal! I don't know exactly if the songs were remastered or rerecorded and then released as Oracle - As darkness reigns on Massacre Records. I would guess just remastered as the soundsample seems to be played identical, just guitar and drums sounding marginally different.

    Kent Smedley says that under the name Prodigy they recordered this album in 1989 and re-issued for Europe under the name Oracle (due to trademark issues).

    Info from here.

    Anyway, this is a masterpiece!

    So great to hear this masterpiece again! Great live band too. Used to see them a few times around 1990-91, including seeing them open for Megadeth. There had even been talk of them getting signed to Metal Blade but the label ended up passing on them. Who knows how far they would've gotten if they did get signed? At least they got a mention in an issue of RIP magazine. And Brent Smedley went onto join Iced Earth. As Brent says, METAL LIVES!! \m/
