FINAL PROPHECY was formed in April of of 1990 by former Thanatos (U.S.) / Therion (U.S.) guitarist Eric Hoffman in West Palm Beach, Florida, along with drummer James Silvestri as a five-piece. Rounding out the early line-up was bassist Kyle McKelvey, guitarist Pat Flynn (now a classical music professor at Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC) and vocalist Tim Williams. By August of that same year the band ended up as a trio with new bassist Nick Varhola entering the fold.
As a trio, FINAL PROPHECY would record and release two studio demo's, "HE SET THE CAPTIVES FREE" (1990) and "RUDE AWAKENING" (1991), as well as having played with such acts as Dauphin (formerly Revelation), Royal Anguish, Prophecy, Demented Jester, Fatal Sin, and Torn Flesh.
After the release of their sophomore effort "RUDE AWAKENING", both James and Nick left to pursue other opportunities.
Though officially put to rest, one last FINAL PROPHECY demo was recorded for a planned 7" release on the A.R.T Records label, "THROUGH EYES OF FIRE" (1992). This session would go unreleased...until now.
