Review: “Self Titled” by Lamb Of God

The return of Richmond Virginia’s Lamb Of God with their first album of new material in five years and their first with new drummer Art Cruz (ex-Winds of Plague, ex-Prong) as a replacement for Chris Adler has been one many have been foaming at the mouth in anticipation for. The recording was delayed by the

Riff Police! Pull Over! #105: GroundCulture Vs Prong!

Often a band becomes known for that one record that stands head and shoulders above the rest, not necessarily because it was better than any other and sometimes just because it got more attention, radio picked up a song or it got an impressive music video or it was just the right place at the

Review: “How Well Do You Really Know Yourself?” By GroundCulture

Considering themselves to be five segments of the same vision, one culture cursed by a disconnect inside the fabric of their conscious mind, with their backs against the wall, they seek to inspire change through connection.

Bootleg: Prong in Philadelphia!

It has to be said that “Age Of Defiance” is as short as it is sweet and a reminder if one was ever needed, of how impor Prong have been to the Worlds of Metal, Hardcore and Industrial tinged music. Would Harms Way exist without Prong? That’s one for a post gig discussion accompanied by

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who wins? FIGHT! Prong #2

“Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck” by Prong is a stone wall classic from a classic album in 1994’s “Cleansing” which the band can’t get away with not playing live, unless they want to be arrested for inciting a riot that is. The influence of Prong should not be underestimated with bands like Dry Kill

Metal Noise TV: December 2019!

So that was 2019. Done. The end of not only a year but of a decade. What was the sound of December 2019? Well Spiritbox landed some DJent on the table, Body Count signaled their intent with “Carnivore” and Unearth reminded us they would be dragging Prong and Dust Bolt across Europe with a music

The festivity of the twelve days of Christmas runs from 25th December to 5th January, based on an English Christmas Carol that sees a lover give gifts cumulatively over the Christmas season starting with Christmas Day. Originally published in 1780, it’s probably French in origin, Skull Island has been conquered many times in it’s rich

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Prong!

Other than a 5 year hiatus between 1997 and 2002, New York City natives Prong have been mainstays of the Metal scene bringing a blend of Industrial Crossover Thrash and Hardcore to the table across 12 albums and 4 extended plays between 1987’s “Primitive Origins” independent debut album and 2019’s “Age Of Defiance” EP.
