Sonic Prophecy takes influences from the Great Old Gods of the Pantheon of Heavy Metal! Their aim…to join their inspirations on those giddy Olympian Heights and bring the glory of heavy metal down to Earth! Sonic Prophecy describes their music as, “thematic power-infused heavy metal.”
Formed in 2008, and inspired by the likes of Dio, Iron Maiden, Manowar, Black Sabbath, Iced Earth, Sonic Prophecy has released two fine, well-received albums, ‘A Divine Act of War’ and ‘Apocalyptic Promenade’, and now prepare to unleash their third, ‘Savage Gods’, through Rockshots Records on January 19th 2018.
This album builds on the firm foundations created by its predecessors; but expands Sonic Prophecy’s sound into further realms musically and lyrically.
Sonic Prophecy, are like Iron Maiden, a larger than life band, inspired by this world but very much creating their own. As vocalistShane Provstgaard states proudly. “We formed to play Heavy Metal, we have always played Heavy Metal, and we always will play Heavy Metal!”
Shane is stoked for fans to hear ‘Savage Gods’. “Our fans will love this album. As a record it combines all of the things people liked about our previous releases and then moves us forward into new areas musically and lyrically.”
It’s in the live arena that Sonic Prophecy really lay down the law. “We realise that people’s time and money are important and that they are a show to be entertained. We give every show 100% regardless of whether the crowd is twenty people or thousands of people. We also approach our live shows as fans of Heavy Metal, knowing that we represent, on some level, all of the influences that came before us. This means visually and sonically we deliver a show that is fun to watch, inclusive of the crowd, and above all else, loud and proud!”
The Music are Produced by Matt Hepworth, Shane Provstgaard, Darrin Goodman and Matt Lefevre Mixed by Matt Hepworth at Studio Nu and Mastered by Stephen Smith at Soundsmiths Mastering Studios.

“An album of classical Heavy Metal and Power Metal Tunes mixed in one album. The music simply throws you back into hearing very strongly the influences of Classical bands within the power metal scene of Europe even, still you hear influences of Classic Heavy Metal in the music that tones the power metal sound down a bit without losing it all totally and these guys has sure found their own style and sound. Simply; An Excellent mix of experimental music of different genres within metal without be an copy cat of other bands sound or even losing their foundation, These guys can deliver their own stuff! Simply Excellent!” Rate: 4/5 Wictoria Olofsson – War Metal Sweden.
