Far more prog metal than death/doom, you can’t help but feel that The Prophecy’s sound is now more at home in the Porcupine Tree meets Anathema landscape they find themselves in. Any limitations death/doom may impose have now been cast aside completely with the band upping the technicality factor amidst unpredictable undulating rhythms while also maintaining their poignant and emotional core. Incidentally, the mention of Porcupine Tree and Anathema is used symbolically only. While The Prophecy may share a sense of dynamics and a sense of experimentation with these two, forward-thinking, bands, they live happily in their own skin, offering plenty for the more adventurous metalhead to sink his or her teeth into.
