STEEL PROPHET/MYTHIASIN vocalist Rick Mythiasin has revealed more details about the lyrical inspiration for the two recently posted songs from his other band, Tucson, Arizona's ALL IN VEIN — which he joined in October 2006. According to Rick, "'Psychic Parasites' [is] about mind control and schizophrenia and total mental and spiritual enslavement! It's also about decisions we make and temptations we face in life. There is an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, I think you all can relate to this feeling. The next song is titled 'Long Way Home'. You're either blessed or you're cursed and then we die and return 'home' and either rest in peace or roast in flames, but I believe we come back again and again until we get it right with the creator and the cosmos."

Mythiasin previously stated about ALL IN VEIN, "I feel like I've known these guys forever. Everything just clicks.
"We do a variation of covers to all the great artists in metal. We are covering bands such as PRIEST, DIO, SABBATH, QUEENSRŸCHE, AC/DC, MAIDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS, TOOL and many more! The list is growing all the time.
"The energy that we convey when we get together is astounding! I go into a trance and try to channel every singer I am covering. The result is pretty convincing, at least I think so."
MYTHIASIN is putting the finishing touches on its debut CD, tentatively titled "Watch as the World Dies".
