Premier: Moonlight Prophecy – “Escape the Ruins”

Moonlight Prophecy - Vanquished

Power / thrash metallers Moonlight Prophecy have announced November 10 as the release date for their debut full length Vanquished which comes mere months on the heels of their EP Eternal Oblivion. And today we have a premiere of “Escape the Ruins” which is a picture perfect jump off point to acquaint yourself with the band at their best. Speeding locomotive thrash meets towering vocals and the epic arrangements of power metal packed tightly in just over four minutes. Enough spoilers though, head inside to hear the track and for more details.

From the sound of “Escape the Ruins” it should come as no surprise that mastermind Lawrence Wallace actually renamed and retooled his original band Lawrence’s Creation under the Moonlight Prophecy banner. Lawrence’s Creation was his instrumental shred project and if there’s one thing that’s required of instrumental anything is that the musicians have to rely on their skill to keep the listener engaged. On “Escape the Ruins” Wallace and Co. do just that with melodic leads and speedy drum work but also with the kind of epic sounding voice that is a trademark of great power metal.
