Originally released in 1989, when thrash was arguably at its creative and
commercial peak, Powertrap boldly introduced DISCIPLES OF POWER to
the worldwide metal scene. Here, this culmination of the band's
foundational first three demos up-ratcheted the intensity and gave further
clarity to the band's restlessly shifting but always tuneful constructs. For
sure, it cemented DISCIPLES OF POWER's name among Canada's techthrash
lineage, from founding fathers Voivod to heirs DBC onward. The fulllength
follow-up, 1992's Ominous Prophecy, indeed came during an
ominous time for thrash, when many/most were slowing down and looking
for more mainstream audiences. Instead, DISCIPLES OF POWER stuck to
their guns and simply made their tornado of souls more stunning. Heavier
and more deathly, and even more ambitious in its songwriting - if anything,
Ominous Prophecy is perhaps the band at the peak of their powers.
Ominous Prophecy is now available on vinyl for the first time ever.
