Road to the End of the World
Prophets of War are stretching the boundaries of what it means to be metal with the album 'Road to the End of the World'. The album is themed around the concept of life as a journey, full of the unexpected, of hope and despair, but ultimately a pleasure. The Christian faith of the band members is channelled with passion and fury into every song, underlying every word, riff and melody, binding them and uniting them. The album is both a work of art and a reflection of life. There is a predominantly progressive feel to the song structure, and taking influences from bands such as Opeth, they are not afraid to venture into the melancholy and delicate clean sections that many metal bands religiously reject. The guitars drive much of the music with soaring harmonies and cleverly layering. Brutal black metal riffs, followed by epic solos, and harnessed by a gentle vocal harmony are but a glimpse into what is 'Road to the End of the World'.
