The Prophecy 23 Posts New Album Teaser

The Prophecy 23 will release new album "Green Machine Laser Beam" on June 29th, 2012. A making-of video has now been posted online and can be viewed below. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"After the overwhelming feedback on the debut record, their second record Green Machine Laser Bean smashes into your head like a 23k-sledgehammer.

"Catchy party tunes like 'No Beer (What A Mess),' 'Don't Waste Time -- Get Wasted' or 'Wake Me Up For Lunch' incite metalheads to bawl both in moshpits and basement party rooms. Rough and heavy tracks like 'Don't Step Back' and the mosh anthem 'We Are The Pit Police' don't beat around the bush.

"The Prophecy 23 also deals with issues of global importance: Ice Road Trucker vs. The Sun is a tribute to the hardest of men. During 'Princess of Gorleben' you can get to know the romantic face of The Prophecy 23.

"Green Machine Laser Beam is produced by Kristian 'Kohle' Kohlmannslehner in the Kohlekeller Studio. Kohlmannslehner already put the final touches on miscellaneous chart entries (Crematory, Powerwolf, et al.)." More...

"I want to thank everyone who accompanied me on my way with The Prophecy 23, especially the Brutal-Thrash-Maniacs Hannes, Dennis and Flo for a wicked and crazy time, kick ass gigs and all the partying. Thanks to the roadcrew, the merch ladies, Massacre Records and last but not least our fantastic, supportive fans.

"Certainly I will play the upcoming gigs with the band until a new bass player and singer is found. There will be a last farewell concert soon. I hope to see you guys there to have some drinks together. Stay brutal!"

The Prophecy 23 also added, "The band regrets but respects his decision! The recent years were great and successful for The Prophecy 23 and Tobias has contributed a decisive part through his personality, his bass playing and his incredibly rough growls. We had a great time as bandmates and will continue to have a killer time as buddies and friends while grillin', boozin' and hangin' around. And as BRUTAL THRASH MANIACS!"
