...To the Pit

Rated 3.83/5 (76.67%) (6 Votes)

By sound alone I would have thought that this was some U.S. crossover Thrash band but no, The Prophecy23 hail from Germany, without sounding much like most of their Thrash countrymates. The vocals are very crossover-style for the most part, though there are some harsher, growly vocals popping up here and there. Kind of weird for the style of music, but they actually don't sound out of place here.

The vibe is kind of party-ish and goofy, not unlike what you'd find on Municipal Waste's first couple of albums. Energetic, fast and cacophonous, ...To the Pit is for the most part what I'd call "party Thrash" or "fun Thrash", the kind of music that doesn't sound like the band is taking things too seriously, the kind that usually just kills live and puts life into a party. Lots of cool, catchy riffs and solos can be found here – which is what I expect from the genre – but there are some filler parts here and there, though not enough to kill the vibe.

It's been done before of course, but The Prophecy23's recipe is good delivery of catchy, energetic songs. Despite a few sub-par tracks (this is one of those albums that would probably have been better at a 30 minute length), there are good times to be had listening to this stuff.
