Chris Prophet Unveils First Single from Debut Album Athaza

Exclusive DK premiere. One-man instrumental progressive metal machine Chris Prophet has released Stargaze, the first single from his debut album Athaza.

The full album is set for release on the 8th March 2019.

“Star Gaze is definitely one of the songs nearest to my heart. With about six guitars playing at the same time, this was so much fun to record and write as I continuously pushed myself to focus on adapting my sounds to carry across the feeling of insignificance and magnificence when looking up at the night sky.” – Chris Prophet

Athaza is the debut album from Pretoria based South African musician Chris Prophet. Basically self-taught, Chris developed his skills by learning and applying techniques from other guitarists and musicians he was inspired by. Having no formal background in music theory he firmly believes that once he becomes aware of the many rules of music, he will become bound by them, and be afraid of going where his emotions guide him.

The album is dedicated to his best friend who passed away unexpectedly in 2016. Every track on the album represents the emotions that he experienced during the nine years writing these songs. Some tracks took years to complete where other tracks took a matter of days, but each one of them represent a certain struggle that he had to cope with either in his personal or professional life.
