Missa Mercuria is a pleasant surprise... Well the intro song wasn't that good, but when the other songs came on I was blown away. I've always enjoyed D.C. Cooper's singing (although some maybe won't enjoy his high vocal range stuff). Missa Mercuria has Royal Hunt vibe on the third track Divine Spark... but Missa Mercuria isn't Royal Hunt clone. The other songs are totally different and that's what I like so much about this album — it's very diverse. You can literally listen to it over and over again... it's so good. There's something for everyone, heavy, symphonic, prog, ballads, you name it.

D.C. Cooper isn't the only singer on this album... There are many guest appearances (for example Edenbridge's Sabine Edelsbacher appears on 'Whisper of the Soul'). Also David Readman from Pink Cream 69 & Adagio can be heard on this record. He appears on 'The Fairytale of Truth' and 'Bursting Ego'. Also Isolde Groß and Andy Kuntz appeared on this record.

The sound is also very good on this album (it's well produced). And every now and then you'll hear astounishing guitar work... There's not much to complain. Get this album, you won't regret it...
