PROPHECY began in 1991 in Shreveport, LA (U.S.). James Parks II (guitars/vocals/drums) met a couple of other musicians and started jamming together, then decided to form a band. James chose PROPHECY as the name. A logo concept was decided by James and Mike Wilson, and then drawn by Mike, who was also the other guitarist of PROPHECY for the following 3 years. After playing in the Shreveport/Bossier City, LA area 3 years +, the 4 members decided to part ways. About 6 months passed before James met Joe "Boogie" Dunlap (guitarist). They decided to move to the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area. Soon thereafter, Phil Holland joined on vocals, and PROPHECY became a BRUTAL DEATH METAL band in 1995 (TXDM). PROPHECY began writing new material for their debut 5-song EP "It Shall Come to Pass". It was released by Prophecy Records on cassette in March 1996. In March of 1997, a 2-song promo was released by Prophecy Records on cassette for promotion of their debut full-length CD, "Foretold...Foreseen". It was released by Prophecy Records 10-28-98, and then re-released by Prophecy Records 2013. James Parks II officially endorsed by Jackson Guitars (2000-2003).
