About Prophecy Productions:
Prophecy Productions emerged in 1996, quickly earning worldwide regard for high-quality releases and a selective, eclectic roster. Beginning as a self-run mail order label, Prophecy owner and founder Martin Koller released Empyrium’s 1996 debut, A Wintersunset… To this day, he has continued to nurture and develop artists he loves, resulting in a staggering roster that sports artist such as Alcest, Khôrada, Bethlehem, Lantlôs, Falkenbach, etc.
With growing awareness of the vast differences and growing possibilities in the U.S. metal community, Koller chose to expand into the U.S. by opening a North American division. In 2017, Koller moved to California to explore new possibilities in the American market, establishing a diverse, talented, and dedicated American team, consisting of Rayshele Teige (ex-Century Media and Osmose), Kay Shelton (ex-20 Buck Spin and Wolves in the Throne Room, Northwest Terror Fest), and Matt Bacon (Metal Injection, Dropout Media).
With Prophecy in the USA, this powerhouse team aims to enrich and expand the Prophecy roster, uncovering and cultivating fresh artists and supporting icons alike. So far, the U.S. roster reads eccentric, eclectic, and nicely unpragmatic; U.S. black metal pioneers Nachtmystium and Xasthur, highly speculated and anticipated supergroup Khôrada (ex-Agalloch, Giant Squid), blackened-sludge abyss Eye of Nix, Oakland surrealists Silence in the Snow, black metal/noise crossover superstar Crowhurst, and brute-doom experimentalists Year of the Cobra.
