Prophets Of The Apocalypse are a solo project that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Threshold Of War" which was released by Sliptrick Records.
Drum beats and powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album along with some melodic riffing a few seconds later. Blackened metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording while death metal growls are also utilized at times and the riffing is very heavily rooted in thrash metal.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the music also adding in a decent amount of 80's and influences as well as being very modern at the same time.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one track also introducing clean playing and whispered vocals onto the recording and on some songs the vocals add in more of a thrash style, as the album progresses an instrumental is added onto the recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war, mythology and horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Prophets Of The Apocalypse and if you are a fan of black, death and thrash metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ashes" "Trophies Of War" "Hierchy Of Terror" and "Skye Ablaze". 8 out of 10.
