Theocracy is a [[ChristianRock Christian]] Music/HeavyMetal band from Athens, Georgia in the US. Their style mixes elements of PowerMetal and ProgressiveMetal with plenty of Music/IronMaiden influences. The band was formed in 2002 by Matt Smith [[Creator/MattSmith (no relation)]], [[CrowningMomentofAwesome who played all the instruments, performed all the vocals, and programmed the drum machine on the first self-titled album, as well as mixing and polishing it]]. The band has since become an actual full band -- there were three members who played on their 2008 sophomore album, ''Mirror Of Souls'', and there are currently five members. Their third (and arguably heaviest) album, ''As The World Bleeds'', was released in 2011 and marks their first release as a full band.
