Heaven and Hell Records will be releasing all the North Carolina False Prophet material on CD early in 2013. As one of the next releases in the Lost Relics collection.
Formed in the late 1980s False Prophet would quickly become one of North Carolina’s leading metal bands and one of the East coast’s most fierce thrash/death metal acts of the early 1990s. Their first self-titled demo released in 1989 gained them promising attention in the underground. But it wasn’t until the release of their full-length ‘Second Death’ in 1991 that the band began to gain mass critical praise from critics and peers. Many of whom saw False Prophet as the next Morbid Angel.
The band toured the region playing with such acts as Danzig, Confessor, Forbidden, Demolition Hammer, Dark Angel and eventually landed a deal with Belgium label Mausoleum Records. Unfortunately an album would never be release. By 1993 the band changed their name to Infernal Hierarchy and released one two song 7″. Soon after the band that was once known as False Prophet would come to an end.
