Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Mark Deming awarded the album 4 stars stating "Appearing seven years after it was recorded and over ten years after the last proper Pain Killer album, it's not difficult to read The Prophecy as a summing up of Zorn and Laswell's experiment in fusing free jazz and extreme metal, and it ultimately turns out to be more than the sum of its parts, making it compelling listening".[2]
