An obscure gem from the tail end of the NWOBHM period, 1985's
is the only album released by this British band,
Records compilation appearance and a rare 7" released under the name
Early-eighties Brit metal this most definitely is, but with more depth
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.
