Carved Into Stone
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Long Branch Records
A quarter-century after helping invent industrial metal, Prong still manage to sound like both an art project and punk thugs at the same time. Though what they really sound like is trash-compacted Killing Joke, echoing to an almost ambient extent, but with Tommy Victor's slogan-spouting New Yawk tuff-guy diction suggesting a more palatable if boxed-in answer to Anthrax. It goes down surprisingly easy, with occasional "Children of the Grave" chug parts (title track) but only one major departure: "List of Grievances," a straight mosh seemingly aimed at naively protesting hardcore complainers.
