Prophecy biography
PROPHECY is a progressive metal band from Burgundy region in France that began as a cover band playing covers of classic DREAM THEATER, Steve VAI and Joe SATRIANI until they eventually worked more and more of their own original material into the repertoire.

The band recorded and released their debut album, "Illusion Of Time", published by the Musea Parallèle label in 2010. The material was clearly inspired by their progressive metal peers and features almost 80 minutes of epic metal music with complex technical interplay between the band members while still maintaining a good feel for the melodic side of the genre. The album reaches its peak with the album-titled and self-titled suites, together clocking at 25 minutes, and gives an excellent representation of the band's style.

Current lineup of the band consists of guitarist Vincent VALENTI, vocalist Frédéric BIARD, keyboardist Cédric POYER and percussionist David FREGA.

— First review of this album —
3 stars French act PROPHECY is a recent addition to their native land's music scene, and "Illusion of Time" is their first full-length feature. In addition, the band appears to be the creative vehicle of guitarist Valenti. The man has written all the music and most of the lyrics, and has also attended to mix and production. Musea Records signed the band in 2010 and subsequently issued this CD on their Musea Parallele sub-label.

"Illusion of Time" lacks the bells and whistles to be considered a priority purchase, but the band is talented and Valenti is a more than able songsmith. Progressive metal fans with a keen interest in the original heartland of this genre might want to give this one a go, though, in particular those who don't mind a mediocre production as long as the music is well-made and engaging.

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
