Hailing from the north-east of England, RISEN PROPHECY was formed in 2005 by Ross Oliver (guitars) and James Charlton (drums) who then quickly recruited Dan Tyrens (vocals) and Ben Oliver (bass). Since the beginning the line-up has remained strong and stable because they share the same influences and are best friends outside the band. RISEN PROPHECY's music is rooted in thrash but they take and mix in a variety of different genres, like US power metal and progressive metal, with a special leaning towards epic and conceptual songs.
In 2007, at the average age of 17, they recorded and released their first 2-track demo "Risen Prophecy". In 2009 the band recorded their first full-length album entitled "Screaming for Death" which was released independently on 1st of April 2010.
On the back of this album RISEN PROPHECY toured the UK extensively and were able to play alongside bands such as: CAULDRON, BATTLEAXE, CETI, SPARTAN WARRIOR (NWOBHM legends whom James Charlton joined on drums in 2011), SODOMIZER, VOMITOR and REZET. From these shows they gained a reputation for tight, unrelenting performances.
