ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Words of Prophecy is the first full length album from the American thrash metal band Black Magik. The album is reminiscent of Metallica's early releases, including Ride the Lightning. The album's opener and title track, Words of Prophecy, is a no holds barred thrash epic with blinding speed and lyrics preaching of the coming apocalypse. The title track is a showcase for the brutal guitar attack of Kevin Kelly, along with his hard edge vocal style and lyrics. The title track also showcases the furious drumming of David Kubicki. After one listen you'll know why they call him "the machine." The second track, Chemical Valley, opens with an ominous and evil riff before whipping the listener into a fury. Besides the poignant environmental lyrics of the song, the track is lifted by the guitar solo of Kevin Kelly and bass lines of Al Barton. The third track, Driven by Delusions, is politically charged with lyrics about the Tiananmen Square incident in China. The track showcases the powerful drumming of Kubicki. The fourth track, Forever Forsaken, is a ballad like Metallica's "Fade to Black," ending with a brutal fury of guitars, bass and drums. The fifth track, Blind Terror, speaks of the effects of addiction and displays the speed, accuracy and fervor of the band. The chorus is one of the most memorable on the album. The sixth track, Bloodbath, is sadistic and relentless, showcasing the talents of Barton, Kubicki and Kelly as they frequently change tempo and time signatures without missing a step. The lyrics are drawn from the Guyana tradegy and the cult leader, Jim Jones. The seventh track, Kill, tells the story of a young man drafted and sent to Vietnam. The confused kid is told by his superiors: "when in doubt...kill" even if the kid isn't sure he is killing the enemy. The song is over eight minutes of brutality and demonstrates the skills of the entire band. The last track, The Other Side of Silence, is a pure thrash musical, like Metallica's "Orion." Black Magik proves to the listener that they can pay homage to the great 80's thrash bands while creating fresh and new metal viciousness. If you love great American thrash, this album is for you.

simply amazing!!
the new full length from american thrash metal band black magik is superb! its amazing to know that this is just the beginning.its been quite a while since a thrash album smacked me in the face this hard!!it reminds me of the first time i heard metallicas' "ride the lightning". from beginning to end this album makes me move. the sheer brutality and aggression of "words of prophecy" will hold up against any thrash band out there today.with the incredible musicianship and intelligent,thoughtful lyrics,this album will keep you thinking way after the last song has played.kevin kellys vocal style fits perfectly with the music.his guitar work is amazing.he is backed bye an incredible rhythm section in al barton on bass and dave Kubicki on drums.this cd is on my mp3 player,and i have'nt been able to stop listening to it.i can not wait to see what the future brings for the fresh ,new thrash band!!
"i have my orders..when in doubt kill! kill!! kill!!
