Walking Alongside Prophets

The Fallen Prophets

by Baby Barnes

If you’re into Death Metal, a South African band that comes highly recommended on my list – arguably the best – hailing at the number one spot is The Fallen Prophets.

Founded in 2011 and officially launched in 2014, crime, horror, serial killers and “good fucking groove” is what makes this 4-piece so skull crushing and deadly. The Fallen Prophets have ‘undertaken an oath with death itself, belting out notions of malcontent, catastrophe, decay and relentless fury that together fester on the pillars of Death Metal.’

Nephilim was formed after previous failed attempts in various other bands, which disbanded due to the boundaries encountered with other band members, either unable to find the right vocalist or a completely reliable drummer etc. The idea was to be able to write with full creative freedom, and not be restricted to play anything other than we envisioned. Pure Unrestricted South African Death Metal.

Nebula Disrupt

Nebula Disrupt

Nebula Disrupt is a black-metal band with fast-paced heavy riffs, solo’s, sweeps, gravity blasting and vocals with well timed screams.

In 2015 the band played at Witchfest ’15 in JHB alongside international bands such as Belphegor, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Septic Flesh, Decapitated, Cannibal Corpse (to name a few) and some of the biggest in the South African metal scene. This was followed by a decent collection of local Cape Town gigs, the most memorable of which was the second chance to perform for Metal4Africa at Winterfest. The last few months have been a writing period for the band which promises to bring a range of new and more intense material, also grinding towards a full length album towards the last half of 2016.

Negative CORE Project

Negative CORE Project!

Going under the name “TARANTULA” the band has been through many changes of both style and members, from Old School Thrash to Groove/Death Metal, since 2008 up ‘till now.

Our first album “Spread the disease” is out since the fall of 2012 and it was released just after our first official video for “Psalm of Mockery”. We toured with both “Eufobia” (BG) and “Soul Sacrifice” (TUR) for the release of the album. The first half of the LP, “Old Shit” as we called it, contains tracks composed by former band members that the new crew re-orchestrated, boosting both groove as well as speed riffs. “New Shit” with songs like “Unholy” or “Never Enough” uppers the darkness of our themes, giving away more of what is to be expected from the band in the near future. The whole album is in fact a tribute to what we formally played as well as a transformation of the band’s core style.

Nerve Zero


Nerve Zero’s biography is too complex to comprehend. They have had more line-up changes than a dog has fleas. Basically Nerve Zero are all seasoned (salted & spiced) musicians that just wanna party and produce mean aggressive and refined Metal. No frills, plenty of spills! If you have the “nerve” then give Nerve Zero a listen.
