Today, we turn our attention to Prime Prophecy, a promising symphonic metal band hailing from Brooklyn, New York, USA. In this review, we delve into their impressive song, "End of the Beginning," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Prime Prophecy first caught my attention approximately three months ago with their irresistible song, "End of the Beginning," released as a single in 2019. Since their official debut in 2011 with the full-length album "Dark Side of Heaven," this talented band has consistently released captivating music. With subsequent releases such as "Viking" (Single, 2012), "End of the Beginning" (Single, 2019), and "My Confession" (Single, 2020), their discography exemplifies their commitment to their craft. While based in New York City, it's worth noting that the band members are all European, a fact evident in their vocal style. Please listen to the song while reading the rest of this article.

The story of my discovery of Prime Prophecy began with their submission on Submithub. Although they had an impressive professionally filmed music video for "End of the Beginning," they chose to submit the song without it, which, in my opinion, was a missed opportunity. Regardless, as I embarked on listening to their submission, I initially held reservations. At first, it appeared to be another symphonic metal band employing familiar ideas, sections, and instrumentations. However, my perception changed in an instant when I encountered the game-changing moment of the song. This experience serves as a valuable lesson for musicians submitting their work to blogs, labels, or agents. "End of the Beginning" is a phenomenal song that completely surprised me and altered my initial perception, thanks in large part to the vocals. I must emphasize that the vocal mix on this track is the best I have heard in a long time. The exceptional balance and mixing allow the remarkable vocal performance to shine through, transcending genre boundaries. It is a testament to the vocalist's talent and the transformative impact a skilled vocalist can have on a song. In short, Prime Prophecy possesses the musical standards capable of satisfying symphonic metal enthusiasts worldwide. However, with Martin Wilczek's extraordinary vocals, they now possess the potential to captivate audiences at renowned festivals like Wacken Open Air.

Technically, "End of the Beginning" showcases top-class production standards in every aspect. The song boasts a clean, clear, and natural sound, evoking a sense of beauty and magic. The meticulous handling, mixing, and mastering of the track contribute to a seamless harmony that elevates the listening experience. It is one of the best-sounding symphonic metal songs I have encountered in some time. Although I am unaware of the specific individuals involved in the production process, I must commend the producer for their exceptional work in understanding the band's desires, style, and potential. The producer's skillful sound mixing and, in particular, the vocal mixing deserve recognition. If Metalhead Community were to give awards, the producer would undoubtedly receive the accolade for best vocal mixing.

Taking all these elements into account, I am impressed by Prime Prophecy. "End of the Beginning" is an exceptional piece of work that has the potential to become a mainstream hit on rock and metal TV networks and radio stations worldwide. While the song alone may not catapult the band to the heights they deserve in their careers due to marketing and promotional challenges, it is undoubtedly a source of enduring pride for the band members and their families.
