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 2nd 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.
PROPHECY began writing new material for their debut 5-song EP
"It Shall Come to Pass”. It was released by Prophecy Records (which James created, owns, and operates) on cassette in March of 1996. In March of 1997, a 2-song promo was released by Prophecy Records on cassette for promotion of their debut full length c.d., "Foretold...Foreseen". Prophecy Records released “Foretold…Foreseen” on 10-28-98. “Foretold…Foreseen” was re-released by Prophecy Records on c.d. in 2013. The "It Shall Come To Pass" full length c.d., was released by Prophecy Records on 9-3-01. PROPHECY’s 2nd full length c.d. "Our Domain", was released by Prophecy Records and Shindy Productions (Czech Republic) on 7-7-02. And 2003 seen the bands 8th release, a 2nd European 7" split.
