Prime Prophecy – End of the Beginning Song Review
Today we are featuring another promising symphonic metal band; PRIME PROPHECY, from the USA. We have reviewed their great song; End of the Beginning, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Prime Prophecy is a promising symphonic/melodic/atmospheric metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their irresistible song; End of the Beginning, off from their single with the same title which was released in 2019. The band is officially making releases since 2011. They have started their careers with a full-length album called; Dark Side of Heaven in 2011, Viking (Single) in 2012, End of the Beginning (Single) in 2019, and My Confession (Single) in 2020. Although these gentlemen are based in New York City, they are all European as you can also tell by listening to the vocals in their music. So please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
The story of my discovery of Prime Prophecy has started with their submission on Submithub. Actually, the song has a professionally filmed, great looking music video, yet they have chosen to submit the song without the video, which I believe was a big mistake. Anyway. Whenever I am listening to a new submission, I take a look at their art/artwork and what they have noted for me. In this example, my opinion was quite negative about everything at first. I started to listen to the song and I was like; it’s just another symphonic metal band with the same kind of ideas, sections, instrumentations, and so on. Honestly, I was hopeless until I hear the game-changer moment of the song. The reason why I wanted to talk about this is that I want everybody to have an idea about submitting your music to someone, it can be a blog, label, or an agent. Briefly, End of the Beginning is a phenomenal song that totally surprised me and made me change my mind in a second only with their vocals. Honestly, guys, this is the best vocals mix I have heard for a long long time. It is so successfully balanced and mixed, you can listen to this amazing guy singing without any music on it. He is so exceptional with his voice you don’t even bother what kind of music they play. Anyway, let me go into some details for you.
When you listen to the song carefully, you’ll also realize that these gentlemen are quite experienced at what they do. They have written everything wonderfully, yet it wasn’t different or characteristic enough for my specific taste in metal music. Everything until the vocals kick in sound quite “usual” yet beautiful. And when that moment comes, Martin Wilczek starts singing in English with his non-American accent, he immediately takes everything up to Dimmu Borgir’s standards. Hands down. I am not exaggerating. I am not a music fan who is only interested in hearing the vocal melody or some shit just like pop music listeners, on the contrary, I am all about the intelligence in music. However, this example was so shockingly powerful I couldn’t stop thinking about it. There’s a lesson to be learned here. And I must admit that once again I realized how big difference a vocalist can make. In short, Prime Prophecy has the musical standards that can satisfy most of the symphonic metal listeners in this world. However, with Martin Wilczek, it’s not only a good song to listen to, now I would love to watch and listen to them at Wacken Open Air!
Technically, End of the Beginning has top-class standards in every way. Everything sounds clean, clear, natural, beautiful, magical, very well handled, mixed, mastered, and most importantly in great harmony. This is one of the best sounding symphonic metal songs I have heard for some time. I don’t know who was their producer, who mixed and mastered their music. But I can easily say that he has done a phenomenal job by understanding the band, their desire, style, and potentials. The producer also has huge credit on this exceptional outcome, especially with his overall sound mixing (balancing) and of course, with the vocal mixing. If Metalhead Community was giving awards, I’d definitely send him the best vocal mixing award without a doubt!
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am super impressed by Prime Prophecy. End of the Beginning is an exceptional piece of work that has the potential to become a worldwide mainstream hit on every single rock/metal tv network and radio. This song alone might not take the band where they deserve to be in their careers because of some marketing and promotional issues, yet I am sure it will make them and their families proud all their lives!
END OF THE BEGINNING is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to those who love symphonic metal!
