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.

PRONG Zero Days

Album · 2017 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
There's an argument to be made that a lot of bands put out their best material on their first to fifth album, or before they turn 40 years old. Think about all the bands who were better when they were newer. Of course, there are exceptions. Notable among those exceptions are New York's mighty Groove Metal Veterans, Prong.

Tommy Victor, who basically is Prong in the way that Dave Mustaine basically is Megadeth or Trent Reznor is Nine Inch Nails or Jeff Waters is Annihilator, has arguably only been getting better and better the more he works. Especially since the band really hit their new stride with their 8th studio album, Carved Into Stone in 2012. Basically, ever since then, everything the band touch has turned to gold. Great production, great tone, great vocals, great choruses, great riffs. Absolutely consistent, basically no filler, no drop-off from album to album.

You may have guessed already from that introduction, but I like Prong's newest album, 2017's Zero Days. I like it a lot. It is Prong's 11th full-length studio album (not counting remixes, covers albums and compilations),  and it is an absolute gem.

It follows that perfect formula of the past three studio albums perfectly, delivering more of that fantastic modernized Groove Metal with small hints of the different parts of their career all refined and with a lot of chug, pace and groove balanced out with catchy but not saccharine melodies. 'Bad Ass' are really the best words to describe their current sound.

Combining the crunchy, crushing riffs of a Pantera, the eerie melody and mechanical sensibilities of a Fear Factory, the hardcore-influenced groove of a '90s-era Sepultura and muscular power of a Machine Head, but with an updated sound and masterful production job; Prong batter the audience with a perfect blend of styles as easily enjoyable by a Black Label Society fan as a Five Finger Death Punch or a Pitchshifter fan.

Highlights include the speedy Hardcore influenced 'Force Into Tolerance' with its bouncy floor tom drive, opener 'However It May End' & also 'Interbeing' with their fat bouncy '90s riffing, as well as 'The Whispers' which seems to be a hark back to their classic single 'Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck' but with a much more melodic chorus that sounds like it should be in a pro wrestling event.

Just because they've been going a while, doesn't mean Prong aren't putting out some of the best material of their whole career. This album is a superb blend of tooth-kicking riffage and sweet but uncommon melody. It has all the advantages of Nu Metal without all the questionable drawbacks. Its fun, its bouncy and its accessible, but it still has ferocious riffs, impressive guitar solos and a direct through-line to beefy hardcore, classic thrash metal, and the slightest hints of industrial lurking deep in the background. If any of that sounds good to you, check this album out and check the three studio albums that preceded it too. You won't be sorry.

Back in 1990 New York’s Prong were really onto something. They had been mixing Thrash Metal and Hardcore Punk as many others had before, but managed to do it in a very creative way and come out with a Groove Metal gem that would see them entering the same sort of territory as Pantera, Machine Head, Fear Factory and ’90s era Sepultura would do soon after.

Maybe its the tone and the production job from Mark Dodson (Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax), maybe its the tempo, or maybe its nothing more complicated than the songwriting, but this album feels like history being made. The blistering Thrash Metal opener ‘For Dear Life’ is chunky riff-driven fun, and there are reappearances of that spirit here and there throughout the album, but basically after that it slows down a bit, and mixes a Sabbathy riff focused 3-4 minute structure with the power and grit of Thrash, the bark and streetwise nature of Hardcore and that charming early ’90s sound to create a damn solid, memorable and interesting album. A pretty good example of the album’s style overall would be ‘Right To Nothing.’

Tommy Victor’s iconic voice ties it to what would follow, but this may sound a bit different if you are expecting it to sound identical to their classic Cleansing record or their amazing four newest albums. Its a bit more simple and a bit less sophisticated, but it is very charming. One-dimensional is the wrong term, but, focused!

If you like Prong but don’t own this yet, dig back and don’t miss out! If you like any of the other bands listed above, make it your business to check Prong out as well!

PRONG No Absolutes

Prong’s 2016 album X No Absolutes is a real stunner. The band entered a new golden period of high quality and high productivity with 2012’s Carved Into Stone. Since then they’ve released 4 studio albums, one covers album, and one semi-live album. You could imagine with that high an output maybe the albums would sound rushed, but quite the opposite, this is arguably the strongest period of their career to date.

Among the best of this renaissance period is X No Absolutes, which is their tenth full length studio album (hence the X!). Prong show no weakness or slowing down with age. This album is pretty damn bad ass. The album follows the musical direction of the past few albums; Pantera & Early Machine Head-esque ’90s sounding Groove Metal mixed with brief hints of Thrash, a weird arty Killing Joke tinge at times, the best parts of Nu Metal used in moderation and all that is wrapped up in Tommy Victor’s New York bark.

The first track, lead single and modern day concert mainstay, ‘Ultimate Authority’ is an absolute winner, starting the album off strong with its faster pace and memorable chorus. All the first four songs are great. Groovy, punchy and memorable. Varied, but tied together perfectly by the vocal and production style. If you want to know if this album (or band) is for you, check out those first four tracks, they are red hot.

The title track comes next, branching out into more melodic material, which then defines the middle of the album. ‘Do Nothing’ actually reminds me a bit of Papa Roach only with more Fear Factory style drums, if you can imagine that. Think Digimortal meets Love Hate Tragedy.

After the middle experimental section of the album, it gears back up into more metallic territory, with ragers like ‘Universal Law’ and ‘In Spite Of Hindrances’ being particular highlights.

If you are into the likes of Pantera, Machine Head, Fear Factory, Pissing Razors, ’90s era Sepultura and actually Five Finger Death Punch as well now that I think of it, I think you would really enjoy this album. Its got a real good mix of styles but lives in that very crunchy, bouncy, memorable world more often than not and is another fine example of Prong’s modern day upswing. If you haven’t checked them out since Cleansing, maybe take a look back in the Prong camp nowadays, they’re as good if not better than ever!

PRONG Carved Into Stone

Album · 2012 · Groove Metal

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

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).
