Germany's The Prophecy23 have returned with a new album that continues the blackened old school thrash songs of previous recordings while also having some death metal elements to them and this is a review of their 2014 album "Untrue Like A Boss" which was released by massacre Records.
A very heavy and old school thrash sound starts off the album along with a brief guitar lead, deep death metal growls and shouting style vocals and the music also brings in an 80's croosover feeling at times along with some pure hardcore elements and the solos the band uses bring a traditional metal feeling to the bands musical style.
Spoken word parts and samples can be heard throughout the recording along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and some of the later songs bring in high pitched screams and punk rock influences as well as a small amount of synths and as the album progresses you can hear small amounts of power and heavy metal being mixed in with the bands aggressive thrash sound.
There is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording along wit h a great amount of the tracks being more of a humorous style of thrash metal and one of the tracks also brings in elements of video game music, clean singing and acoustic guitars which also makes their return on some of the later tracks as well before returning back to a heavier direction and the band also brings a lot more modern elements such as a small amount of deathcore into this musical style.
The Prophecy23 sticks to their old school style of thrash which they mix in with the heaviness of black and death metal and they also bring in elements of hardcore, punk and modern metal to make the music on the recording sound a lot more original instead of being completely retro, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover alcohol, fun and humorous themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from The Prophecy23 and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thr greatest Wrestling Fan" "Untrue To The Bone" "Action Metal" and "The ballad of Old School Metal". 8 out of 10.
