An obscure gem from the tail end of the NWOBHM period, 1985's The Prophet is the only album released by this British band, after an Ebony Records compilation appearance and a rare 7" released under the name Apocalypse. Early-eighties Brit metal this most definitely is, but with more depth and darkness than a lot of the bands of the period, with a nice mix of different moods and tempos, with even doom and prog elements thrown in. The production is typical for an indie '85 release, meaning a bit thin and raw in places, but suitable nonetheless. This is well worth tracking down for any NWOBHM fan, these guys were in many senses ahead of their time and The Prophet stands out as a rather unique album for the period.
