Bio:

Messiah Prophet was a pioneering band in Christian metal, releasing two albums in the mid eighties and one more with a different lineup in 1996.Messiah Prophet Band was formed in the late seventies by Dean Pellman and Gil Tabor as an acoustic duo performing cover songs in Pennsylvania.It had developed into a full band by 1983 with Charlie Clark singing, Andy Strauss and Rob Clark playing guitar, Dave Daubert on drums and Pellham on bass guitar. In 1984, a small Nashville label called Morada Records signed both Messiah Prophet Band and Saint, another band destined to leave a lasting mark on the fledgling Christian metal scene.They recorded their debut album, Rock The Flock in the spring of 1984. Shortly after the recording was finished, guitarist Rob Clark left the band. They played small regional shows in support of the album.In 1986, the band became the first artist signed to new label Pure Metal Records, a subsidiary of the Refuge Music Group. They shortened their name to Messiah Prophet and recorded Master of the Metal in 1986. Dave Daubert left the band prior to going into the studio for this release. David "Thunder" Armstrong was brought on board to record the title track "Master of the Metal". During the recording of the rest of the album, Pellman left the band and was replaced with bassist Joe Shirk. Brian Nicarry was also hired to play rhythm guitar. Shirk and Nicarry previously played together in a local band. A much larger cross-country touring schedule followed, after the release of Master of the Metal.In early 1987 the band took a short break from the road to begin writing for their third album tentatively titled Metal Messiah.They hit the road again, playing some of the new songs in shows in the Midwest and on the East Coast. In late 1987, Strauss and Nicarry left the band taking the new material with them. Messiah Prophet recruited Frank Caloiaro and Mark Zimmerman to finish the tour.In early 1988, Charlie Clark and Ray Fletcher formed a new version of Messiah Prophet with lead guitarist Todd Bergren, drummer CT Cash, bassist Scott Gunther and guitarist Mike Balleitt and begin writing more songs for an album with the working title of Living On The Edge.The band was also rehearsing for an up coming string of shows opening for Barren Cross on their Atomic Arena tour. By mid 1988 Refuge was in financial trouble and could not afford to get the band into the studio for its next release. Refuge started negotiations with Starsong to buy the Pure Metal label. This deal was completed in 1990.Charlie Clark then recorded a new song called "Blinded" with unknown musicians, which was released on the StarSong compilation Ultimate Metal.In 1995 a new Messiah Prophet lineup was being planned by executive producer Ray Fletcher, who owned the rights to the name. Most of the former members were not available, with the exception of vocalist Charlie Clark and touring guitarist Frank Caloiaro. Caloiaro recruited brothers Shane and Sean Regal on guitar and bass respectively and Joe Schrum on drums and began writing material.Clark was brought in after a number of songs were written. Stylistically, the new material was too bland, pop-oriented and sedate for Clarks powerhouse vocals, so he bowed out. They got Dave Grimm to replace him. Grimm was in a serious motorcycle accident two weeks before recording, so they found Mike Raite, who had previously played with Shane Regal in the band King of Hearts, and the album Colors was the result. Colors was a completely different style and had no members who had recorded with the band previously. It was panned by the press - and - poorly received by fans and after just a handful of shows, Messiah Prophet disbanded for the final time.In 2003, German based label Shark Records put two Messiah Prophet songs, "Hit and Run" and "Heavy Metal Thunder", on a split album with Powerlord and Maxx Warrior under its Rusty Diamonds imprint.

Album:

Messiah Prophet (previously known as Messiah Prophet Band) experienced a high degree of turnover following the release of its run-of-the-mill 1984 Morada Records debut Rock The Flock: Guitarist Rob Clark departed only to be replaced by rhythm guitarist/vocalist Brian Nicarry, while bassist Joe Shirk and drummer David Thunder supplanted Dean Pellen (bass) and Dave Daubert (drums) respectively. Returning in 1986 with its Pure Metal sophomore effort Master Of The Metal, Messiah Prophet moves primarily in a straightforward heavy metal direction with occasional tendencies towards melodic metal and commercial hard rock. The end result is a significant leap forward by the band musically in that each of the albums eight tracks are well constructed in holding up under noteworthy melodies and memorable chorus lines.Clark continues to bring to his high quality classic tenor voice. Newcomer Nicarry, however, handles lead vocals on two tracks and proves an equal talent with a similar classic tenor vocal style. Strauss displays demonstrated improvement on lead guitar, proving to be quite the talented musician in bestowing a plethora of his fast paced and fluid soloing abilities. Nicarry helps round out the mix on rhythm guitar, while Shirk and Thunder combine to form a rhythm section defined by steady bass lines and a thunderous (no pun intended) drum sound.The only factor detracting from Master Of The Metal is a slightly thin sounding production job. The bass deserves to be mixed more prominently, while the drums often sound flat and muffled. The rhythm guitar can lack the needed edge and crispness. Only the lead guitar stands out in the mix as it should.Getting the album underway to several seconds of open air rhythm guitar, "Heavy Metal Thunder" advances at a determined mid-tempo pace until it reaches a chorus projecting just the right amount of ardent guitar driven energy. A fiery guitar solo holds sway over the extent of a thirty second instrumental passage.After a choppy rhythm guitar propels "The Friend" through its first verse in up-tempo fashion, it gains further momentum as it obtains a chorus with a huge catchy hook. Strauss really shines with several seconds of fast paced hammer-on driven lead guitar work.Nicarry handles lead vocals on the excellent metal power ballad "Battle Cry". An acoustic guitar slowly carries “Battle Cry” through its first and second verse as vocal harmonies accentuate the emotional atmosphere, the rhythm guitar kicking in as the song picks up in pace for the third. Following several seconds of bluesy lead guitar work, "Battle Cry" increases in impetus prior to reaching a chorus of the impassioned variety. "Battle Cry" touches upon the issues of spiritual warfare and the battle scars we received as we go through the trials and tribulation of life.The seven minute epic "Voice That's Calling" moves the album back to a more mid-tempo paced heavy metal direction. Evenly propelled through its first verse in a steadfast manner by a driving guitar riff, the song culminates for a sweeping chorus delivering a powerful message:

There's a light shining out to the world
In the darkness by His we are hurled
Every knee will bend at the name of Jesus
And every demon bow...

Strauss once again flashed his brilliance with another display of blistering lead guitar work. I like how the song closes out its last several minutes as Clark continually wails away, "Jesus, Jesus I will have no gods before You." Great song.Opening to a drum solo and a muscular bass line, "Hit And Run" launches into a fast paced riff accentuated by sirens. The song proceeds to move ahead with a ton of hard hitting energy until it culminates for an infectious chorus underlined by deep sounding vocal harmonies. Several seconds of fiery lead guitar work perfectly aligns itself with the songs upbeat momentum.The mid-tempo hard rock of the albums title track commences to a heavy duty riff that fortifies its first verse with a ton of metal edged grace and class. Picking up in pace for its bridge, “Master Of The Metal” evenly flows to a portent chorus giving rise to a deep and heavy ambience. Pounding double bass supports just under a minute of the albums best lead guitar work."Fear No Evil" closes the album in good hard rocking fashion. Racing along at breakneck speed (no pun intended) during its first verse, the song picks up in pace as vocal harmonies enter the mix in time to reinforce a chorus carried at an energy-laden upbeat tempo. A bass guitar solo opens an instrumental passage culminating on over a minute of high-octane lead guitar work. The message to "Fear No Evil" ties into that of "For Whom Does The Bell Toll": I cannot say enough good things about Master Of The Metal, a terrific work of art giving rise to consistent songwriting backed by first rate lead vocals and equally noteworthy musicianship. Only a muddy sounding production job holds back what otherwise is a top notch effort.By 1989 the musicians performing on Master Of The Metal had departed leaving Charlie Clark as the bands lone member. Clark proceeded to reform the group with an all new line up in time to record the song "Blinded" for the Star Song compilation Ultimate Metal. At the time "Blinded" was recorded, however, Messiah Prophet was still under contract to Refuge, but when the label was unable to get the ball rolling for a follow up release, the band disbanded.
