Rock group Priestess creates pop-driven melodies with metal muscle. With two albums to date, it has garnered a growing legion of fans around the world. When their first album, Hello Master, came out, the indie music site,, called them “one of the most primal music forces to appear on the scene in a long time.” A year later, group members Mikey Heppner, Mike Dyball, Vince Nudo, and Dan Watchorn were sharing a bill with the group, Megadeth in the U.K., and their song, Lay Down, was featured in the video game, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Their second album, Prior to the Fire, was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by David Schiffman, who worked with Nine Inch Nails. “This is no-nonsense in-your-face hard rock music at its best,” wrote Rock Choice, a website dedicated to hard rock and heavy metal music.
