PROPHECY began in 1991 in Shreveport, LA (U.S.). James Parks II (guitars/bass/vocals/drums) met a couple of other musicians and started jamming together and decided to form a band. James chose PROPHECY as the name. James had a conceptual design idea for the band name logo and Mike Wilson was the artist that drew the band name logo. Mike was also the 2 nd guitarist of PROPHECY for the following 3 years. After playing in the Shreveport/Bossier City, LA area for more than 3 years, the 4 members decided to part ways. About 6 months passed before James met Joe "Boogie" Dunlap (guitarist). They decided to move to the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area and reform PROPHECY . Soon thereafter, Phil Holland joined as lead vocalist. PROPHECY became a TeXas brutal Death Metal (TXDM) band in 1995.
