Kick-ass new material from the PRONG camp.
I’ve always been a pretty firm believer in their music over the years. Some LP’s are better than others, some more “metal” than others, but they are always well-produced and arranged tightly (whether you like the specific direction of each release or not). Carved Into Stone is no exception; in fact I feel this is a perfect blend of older Prong [not counting their first 2 albums] and Prong 2012.
Grinding guitars | Trademark Vox | Powerful production | Fists in the air good time!
Check out a sample below: called Keep On Living In Pain
Thanks to Tommy Victor for holding down the fort all these years and for being a musical inspiration for countless bands (I think Prong has influenced way more bands than they get credit for). Tommy is a very underrated guitarist IMO as well. Despite relative lack of widespread success, this dude is super creative, solid and brings it consistently; going on three decades now! And not to mention he sings and plays guitar live.
Very few bands out there [Metal or not] truly have a sound they can call their “own.” When you hear their music, it’s unmistakably Prong. He should be very proud of that.
