Prospect is a Slovenian progressive metal band from Ljubljana founded in 1991. Their influences include Queensrÿche, Fates Warning, Dream Theater and Iron Maiden. To be directed at the international market, the band writes all their lyrics in English.

History

The band was founded in 1999 when their first album, "#1" was released. The album was warmly accepted among local heavy metal fans and also abroad. In 2002, their second album, "Moments", was released and Simon Jovanovič left the band and started his own project, Unspoken. After a long time of searching, "Robi Grdič" replaced him as vocalist. At some of their concerts, they were an opening band of Paul Di'Anno (former Iron Maiden member) during his tour in Ljubljana and Zagreb in 2001. For most of October 2003, they participated at "The Bonded by Metal" tour across Europe with bands such as Exodus, Agent Steel, Mortitian and Nuclear Assault. In 2005, they supported the band Queensrÿche during the Austrian part of their tour. Their new album, "My Number", was released in 2008.
