The Prophecy²³ is a Thrash Metal band from the area of Heilbronn in southern Germany. Founded in 2002, they started off with covering bands like Slayer, Metallica and Iron Maiden. In 2005 they self-published a first album titled "No Future For the Dead", on which they still played a rather slow Heavy Metal with some Doom-influences. Afterwards the band met some line-up changes, which introduced new bass-player and singer Tobias. He brought new Death Metal-elements into the band's sound, and thus they developed their own style, which they called Brutal Thrash Metal.
