PRONG picture
Prong is a thrash metal and later groove metal band from New York City, New York, US, formed in 1986. Prong had two independent releases, Primitive Origins and Force Fed. The albums attracted the attention of Epic Records, which signed the trio in 1989. The group disbanded in 1997 after the Rude Awakening tour, but re-formed in 2003. A pioneer of the urban scene, Prong is fronted by Tommy Victor. KoRn's Jonathan Davis, as well as Trent Reznor allegedly cite Prong as an influence to their musical style.

Prong was founded in 1986 by singer/guitarist Tommy Victor (then a soundman at New York City's renowned CBGB's). With bassist Mike Kirkland (formely of NYHC band Damage and doorman at CBGB’s) and ex-Swans drummer Ted Parsons, Prong released two independent CDs that were noted for their brutal hardcore sound.

Epic Records saw the band's potential and signed them in 1989. Prong's major

PRONG Carved Into Stone

Album · 2012 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
One of the absolute best Prong albums is Carved Into Stone. It was released in 2012 by Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura, Sick Of It All) on SPV records, and features the bass talents of Tony Campos (Fear Factory, Ministry, Soulfly etc.)

Prong are a really interesting band. They cover a lot of different ground. Early in their career they were a Hardcore Punk band, after that they crossed over into more Thrash teritory. Then they released some seminal Groove Metal albums before going into a much more Industrial direction with some slight Nu Metal overtones. Then they broke up and came back, and went in a few more slight alterations of combinations of all of these styles over their next few albums. Some are more raw, some are more polished, some lean more heavily in one direction, some lean more heavily in another.

The music here, on Carved Into Stone, is terrific. The album opens with two faster ragers, drops into a punkier number and evens out with a mid-paced groover in the spirit of Black Label Society (only with an alternative rock style chorus). This little run is really a mixture of all the different eras of their career. There’s a few moments of industrial flavours here and there. There’s plenty of Pantera, early Machine Head and ’90s Sepultura sounding stuff. There’s tiny little pieces of Fear Factory on the odd occasion. There’s straight up Thrash used sparingly, and moments of punk. It all mashes together smoothly and perfectly both within the songs themselves, and along the album as a whole. It flows really well and all the parts gel together within individual songs.

If you are a new Prong fan, the common consensus is that you should start with their classic 1994 album Cleansing. In my opinion the next place you should go after that is here, Carved Into Stone. I was about to list highlights, but really the aforementioned first five tracks are all absolute must-hears. They show off different parts of the Prong sound. If you wonder if this album is for you then check out any but preferably all of those. ‘Eternal Heat,’ ‘Ammunition’ and ‘Carved Into Stone’ in particular are like three different bands and no one on their own showcases the band fully, yet all of them are absolutely brilliant examples of what Prong do (in part) and really good tunes in and of themselves.

Overall; if you like bands like Fear Factory, Pantera, Machine Head, Pissing Razors or ’90s Sepultura you may seriously want to check out Prong. If you check out Prong you may seriously want to check out Carved Into Stone. It is a very well mixed combination of a few different styles within their arsenal, but what tips it over the edge is the brilliant performances, punchy production, level of consistency and better than usual songs from the band.

PRONG No Absolutes

Album · 2016 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"No Absolutes" is the 12th full-length studio album by US, New York based groove metal act Prong. The album was released through SPV/Steamhammer in February 2016. With Danzig having laid relatively low for some years (lead vocalist/guitarist Tommy Victor has recorded and toured with Danzig for now many years), band founder and only remaining original member Tommy Victor, bassist Jason Christopher, and drummer Arturo "Art" Cruz, have had a bit more time to concentrate on Prong in recent years, which has resulted in Prong releasing both "Ruining Lives" in 2014 and "Songs from the Black Hole" in 2015. With "No Absolutes" that constitutes a pretty steady release cycle with only one year between the three albums, and while "Songs from the Black Hole" is not an album featuring original material but instead a covers album, it´s still more and more unusual these days to release an album every year.

Stylistically this is Prong as we know them. Sharp groove metal riffs and rythms, Killing Joke influenced atmospheric parts, and Tommy Victor´s raw bark in front (and occasional clean vocals). The music on "No Absolutes" is sligthly more hard edged than the case has been on the last couple of releases though, and Prong even occasionally venture into thrash metal territory on tracks like "Sense of Ease" and "Cut and Dry". It´s a bit out of their comfort zone, and it´s not what they do best, but it´s pretty good for the variation of the album, that they branch out a bit. It´s the meaty, sharp, and groovy guitar riffs and hookladen shouting choruses which are the main focus of the band´s music though, and that works almost to perfection on "No Absolutes". They´ve scaled back a bit on the atmospheric parts, and while those parts are great for the variation of Prong´s music, Prong are best when they deliver their hard edged grooves with bite and aggression. That´s their natural environment, and that´s where they shine the most. The album is not devoid of melodic hooks though and a track like "With Dignity" is so catchy it´s close to mainstream territory.

"No Absolutes" features a very well sounding production. It´s raw, it incredibly powerful, but at the same time both clear and detailed. A perfect match for the material featured on the album. So "No Absolutes" is overall a high quality release by Prong and to my ears one of their better releases in recent years. There are still some pretty standard quality material featured on the 13 track, 44:11 minutes long album too though, which could have been more memorable, and therefore it´s not a 100% perfect release, but a 3.5 star (70%) rating is fully deserved (and maybe even slightly too low).

Genre: groove / crossover thrash

Prong's "Cleansing" album from 1994 is probably their most well-known release and arguably among the seminal releases within the groove metal genre. Sadly, despite this status, the band - like so many other metal bands in the 90s - got fucked over by their label (Epic Records, I believe) and broke up in 1996. They kinda reformed and operated on and off in 2000 and ultimately returned in full force in 2007, having consistently released full-length albums since then. 2016 sees the release of "X - No Absolutes".

Like the previous full-length "Ruining Lives" (I'm ignoring the collection of cover songs that is "Songs from the Black Hole), this album offers up a blend of groove metal tracks, such as the opener 'Ultimate Authority' and thrash metal songs, such as 'Sense of Ease' and 'Cut and Dry'. The album strikes me as more diverse than you might expect with 'Ultimate Authority' and 'Soul Sickness' being in the vein of "Cleansing" and 'Belief System' being crushingly heavy and reminds me of metalcore breakdowns before the metalcore bands lost their imagination and all started sounding the same (in other words, it sounds like goo metalcore breakdowns). 'Sense of Ease', 'Cut and Dry', and 'In Spite of Hindrances' are uptempo thrashers with the former being more of a crossover thrash affair. 'Worth Pursuing' is more of a midtempo thrasher as is 'Without Words' although the latter is considerably melodic. In fact, there are some surprisingly melodic tracks on the album, such as 'With Dignity', 'Do Nothing' and the title track.

As always, the tracks on the album are rock solid, and sense of diversity makes for an enjoyable listen. Prong definitely will not let their fans down with this album.

"Songs from the Black Hole" is the 11th full-length studio album by US groove metal act Prong. The album was released through SPV GmbH in March 2015. Prong released their last studio album "Ruining Lives" in April 2014, so it hasn´t even been a year since the release of that album, but "Songs from the Black Hole" isn´t a new studio album featuring original material but instead an album featuring cover tracks.

The 10 tracks on the 42:09 minutes long album is predominantly covers of hardcore and punk artists like Discharge, Black Flag, and Bad Brains, which isn´t surprising if you are familiar with the early output by Prong. The inclusion of "Seeing Red" by Killing Joke is also a matter of course, as Prong has obviously been very influenced by the post punk of that group throughout their career, but there are also a couple of more surprising covers featured on the album in "Vision Thing" by The Sisters of Mercy, and "Cortez the Killer" by Neil Young. Especially the latter stands out as one of the highlights of the album and I´d mention the cover of "Seeing Red" as another standout track, but the quality and entertainment level of the all the covers featured on "Songs from the Black Hole" is decent throughout.

The album is also well produced (maybe a bit too clean for some of the more hardcore oriented tracks) and "Songs from the Black Hole" is overall a good quality covers album by Prong. A couple of more not so obvious song inclusions would have made the album a bit more exciting overall (especially when you hear how great they are at performing both "Vision Thing" and "Cortez the Killer"), but it´s still a pretty good album as it is. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

It's about time that a review/rating was posted for PRIMITIVE ORIGINS here at Metal Music Archives. I'm a little surprised that Prong is often neglected. They are certainly not at the same level of instrumental skill as the generally regarded leaders of the thrash metal genre. That is not really a bad thing in my opinion. By the time PRIMITIVE ORIGINS was released, Prong had certainly become competent musicians. If you're looking for great soloing, this is not the place to be. However, I don't think that's what thrash is about.

This EP has a visceral feel to it that Metallica's more recent releases, for instance, lack. As suggested on other websites, the better songs are on the second half of PRIMITIVE ORIGINS. There is a definite groove influence to be heard in Prong's music which adds to its appeal for me. PRIMITIVE ORIGINS isn't the pinnacle of Prong's career, but it's still a good sampling of visceral metal.
