Mithras - Power struggle

What does band name Mithras mean - Statue of god MithrasDeath metal band Mithras (from Rugby, England) was first called Imperator.

That last name had become availabe after a Polish band of that name had been knocked of its pedestal in 1993.

Bad luck for the English Imperator though: in the course of 1998 the Poles decided to dash for power again under their old name.

The English then switched over to the side of Mithras, the name of the god of mithraism, an official religion in the Roman Empire, popular especially among Roman soldiers and merchants.
