The track has been made especially for Australia's Istoria festival in March

Rich Solarstone and Giuseppe Ottaviani aka Pure NRG have been on a roll of late with some groundbreaking productions. This release is no exception: it's their first ever event anthem, and what it a fine job they have done with it.

The event in question is Australia’s latest arena-sized trance festival. It's being held in Sydney in March, and for such an auspicious occasion the boys have pulled out all of the stops and crafted a behemoth of a trance masterpiece which from the get-go has you primed and ready to get out there and party your ass off.

It starts with the festival's name spoken through a vocoder, then introduces a muted synth line and percussion. These take you to a snapping snare drum roll that ushers in one of the main riffs of the track, which is suitably epic and extremely uplifting. As the track progresses the sounds just seem to get bigger and bigger, with a large slab of a synth line answered by a shorter, techier comeback that gives it an even more mammoth feel.

Although the production is bang up-to-date, Prophecy still manages to hook you in with an old school trance anthem feel. It's the kind of track to start a main set with, or finish an event off with, because one thing's for sure - people aren't going to forget it in a hurry.
