Prong are a great band that I feel don’t really get their dues. With a career stretching all the way back to 1986 that saw them move from hardcore punk to a more industrial rock sound in the vein of Ministry or Nine Inch Nails, Prong could easily be considered one the earliest influences on nu-metal but they seem to have fallen out of favour despite 2007’s brilliant return to form Power Of The Damager.
Hopefully with the announcement of Carved Into Stone this may change. Come April 24th, Long Branch Records will release the new Prong album to the world and while the artwork isn’t much to look at, I’ve got high hopes after the industrial awesome that was contained in their previous effort. For those of you that haven’t heard any, I strongly urge you to check them out and if you can get past the fact that the video for ‘Power Of The Damager only exists in a 240p standard then click below!
