Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (10 Votes)

Prophecy's Legions of Violence is another 80s throwback Thrash release from Endless Brutality of Men, this time of the Bay Area variety. There's nothing wrong with this, especially if you are into early Exodus, Flotsam & Jetsam and the like. It is not an all-out speed assault, although there are some fast parts. Prophecy hangs their hats on the mid-tempo, staccato riffs and squealing solos that have dutifully served many bands in the past.

And this is really the downfall of Legions of Violence. At least a million other bands have recorded this exact same album. The stunning lack of originality may keep the casual fans away, but the devoted will praise the strict adherence to the sound they love. If you live and breathe Bonded by Blood and Doomsday for the Deceiver, Legions of Violence will be a worthwhile addition to your collection. Otherwise, stick with the originals.
