The Prophecy 23 are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being skater thrash with a blackened and death metal edge and this is a review of their 2012 album "Green Machine Laser Beam" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast skater thrash riffs that combine influences from black and death metal with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing in addition there is a brief use of surf music style riffs, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads when t hey are utilized, a s for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use full chords to add a sense of humor to the music
Vocals range from 80's style thrash vocals mixed in with some deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams as well as some spoken word parts, clean singing power/thrash vocals and pig squeels, while the lyrics cover everyday themes, drinking thrashing and moshing, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from The Prophecy 23 and if you are a f an of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dont Step Back" "Green Machine Laser Beam" "No Beer-What A Mess" and "Princess Of Gorleben". RECOMMENDED BUY.
