In 1994 two remaining members of Los Angeles thrash band Psychosis formed the original line-up of Prototype. Kragen Lum (guitar) and Vince Levalois (vocals, guitar), together with a new drummer and bassist recorded three of their newest compositions for the Seed demo. After extensive club appearances in support of Seed, Lum and Levalois recorded their independent EP Cloned and released it in 1998. This one was followed by I think personally two great albums namely Trinity (2004) and Continuum (2006). So now I have before me their 3th full-length album Catalyst. This new album is a story-based science fiction concept album, produced by the band and mixed by mister Neil Kernon. The music then, ‘cause that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? Well I am very pleased with this new chapter in the history of Prototype. Again some great thrash metal with prog metal influences and even some sporadic grunts on this album. So you might say, for example, Heathen meets Fates Warning or Nevermore meets Dream Theater. Some great riffs on this album that trigger the head bang reflex. It’s also a long album which clocks over one hour. But my favorite song is My Own Deception (8.12 minutes), on which all that Prototype stands for comes together in this one track. If you don’t know them yet, go check them out on the Nightmare Records website.: http://nightmarerecords.com/NMR/online-store/pgxso-product-details/prx-969/ctx-1
