PROPHECY - Dont Fuckin Mess With Texas


So underground they've never seen the sun, Texas death metallers PROPHECY first formed in 1991 but have been worshipping at the altar of brutal death metal since 1995.

Coming of age in 1998 with the groove-heavy, riff-laden juggernaut of "Foretold...Foreseen" obliterating stereos, as well as tours with DYING FETUS and DEEDS OF FLESH, PROPHECY never compromising on their values – releasing their own albums and running the TXDM fest for five years in a row.

Pay your respects OBSCENE EXTREME, because PROPHECY are why you don't mess with Texas.


PROPHECY began in 1991 in Shreveport, LA (U.S.). James Parks II (guitars/vocals/drums) met a couple of other musicians and started jamming together, then decided to form a band. James chose PROPHECY as the name. A logo concept was decided by James and Mike Wilson then drawn by Mike who was also the other guitarist of PROPHECY for the following 3 years. After playing in the Shreveport/Bossier City, LAarea for over 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 soon Phil Holland joined on vocals, PROPHECY became BRUTAL DEATH METAL in 1995. PROPHECY began writing new material for their debut 5-song EP "It Shall Come to Pass", (released by Prophecy Records on cassette in March 1996). In March of 1997 a 2-song promo was released by Prophecy Records on cassette for promotion of their debut full-length CD, "Foretold...Foreseen"(released by Prophecy Records 10-28-98 then released by Prophecy Records 2013). James Parks II officially endorsed by Jackson Guitars 2000-2003. "It Shall Come To Pass" (now full-length) was re-released on Prophecy Records 9-3-01. PROPHECY’s 2nd full-length c.d. "Our Domain", was released on Shindy Productions (Czech Republic) and Forever Underground Rec. (U.S.) 7-7-02. And 2003 seen the 8th release, a 2nd European 7" split. And the 3rd official studio full-length, "Don't Fuckin' Mess With Texas" was digitally released 10-28-11 by Prophecy Records and on c.d. 1-7-12 on Prophecy Records! James Parks II is endorsed by Coffin Case as of 2012. This brings them to where PROPHECY is today! With awards and endorsements under their belt and numerous major U.S./EUROPEAN festivals and tours played and many coming, PROPHECY has proven they are here to stay!
