The Prophecy

Rated 2.76/5 (55.29%) (17 Votes)

Defiance was one of those bands that I just kept missing back in the day. I always meant to pick up their first two discs, but I just never got around to it, so I can't say I'm familiar with their old works at all. Then again, I don't think I'd have to be familiar with their prior efforts to be able to tell that this sucks. Yes, this is yet another ‘Thrash Revival" album that contains a shitload of groove and yelling but very little actual Thrash. This is a band that seems to think being loud and repetitive is a valid substitute for actual songwriting. The Prophecy is just a tired rehash of ideas Pantera and Pissing Razors had fifteen years ago, and they weren't good ideas to begin with. At times, this will perk up a little and sound like something maybe as good as GWAR on a good day, but mostly this is the kind of ‘alternative' metal we used to get back in 1994, pounded out joylessly by guys who don't actually care about Thrash Metal. Lame in the extreme.
