With force equal to a sledgehammer to the temple, Voodoo Prophet has hit the underground metal scene running. Finding national airplay on SIRIUS/XM's Liquid Metal, FM radio, opening for acts such as SEVENDUST, TRIVIUM,HELLYEAH, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHINEDOWN, SEETHER,SHADOWS FALL (and MANY more see list below) and annihilating every stage they have set foot on. The band's dedication and "Do It Yourself" attitude has made very clear it intends to carve it’s name into the steel of metal history.
Voodoo Prophet's debut release "Human?" has garnered tons of press and enough interest to stack 2013's "Welcome to the Apocalypse" US Tour with 20+ opening dates with major nationals such as Sevendust, Gwar, and Hellyeah. The EP was recorded in Westfield, MA at legendary ZING RECORDING STUDIOS. Zing is home to some of today's most recognized metal acts including KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ALL THAT REMAINS, and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. The EP was produced by ERIC ARENA (A Day to Remember, Within the Ruins) and Voodoo Prophet guitarist Myk Ricci. "Human?" was mastered by ex-Machine Head guitarist/super producer Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, Fear Factory).
Currently Voodoo Prophet is in the studio working on the follow-up to 2012's "Human?". Tracking for the new EP was done in Westfield, MA at Zing Recording Studios (see press release) and locally in Nashville. The band's summer tour schedule was light for 2014 due to recording, but included dates with MACHINE HEAD, NOTHING MORE, SLEEPWAVE, and the Summer NAMM showcase.
The band is not just a "studio act" however. Fan connection is a very important thing to Voodoo Prophet. With over 400 shows under their belt in a little over 4 years the band has sharpened it's live performance into a deadly point. Voodoo Prophet can always been seen mingling with the fans after a performance and refuses to succumb to the "Rockstar" mentality so many successful independent artists seem to have. The band is also a promoter favorite for it's relentless promotion of shows, and willingness to "hit the streets" to get the word out.
With memorable riffs, catchy hooks and melodies, huge choruses and undeniable groove, Voodoo Prophet will leave you satisfied and wanting more all at the same time. The band has it's sights set on success and will accept nothing short of it.
