With hard-hitting and in your face blasts of metal, with mind-bending rhythms, face-melting guitar solos and fretboard wizardry, this is the band’s most definitive release to date…SUCK IT! How many times have you read that in a press release or CD review?

Aside from the aforementioned archaisms used to describe a piece of music (or piece of shit), what does the music do to you? Does it make you want to spin your head around until you damage your cervical vertebrae, go fuck some shit up, do beer bongs ‘til you puke, or hump on a banister? What’s that? You say Death Cab for Cutie’s latest record does that to you?

Power Of The Damager, Prong’s follow up to its 2003 release, Scorpio Rising is hard, heavy, dirty, and a kick ass record track for track. After a four year hiatus Prong is ready to trounce the sluggish, homogenized pussy faction of so-called heavy music.

The band’s line-up has two new members in the fold. Pushing it “over the borderline” is bassist Monte Pittman, who also plays guitar as a touring member for Madonna—yes, that’s right. Aaron Rossi is on drums and founding father Tommy Victor returns as strong and maniacally as ever strapped to his guitar, wailing, singing, and bleeding out unbridled aggression and truth behind the microphone.

The second song, “No Justice,” exemplifies heavy metal with a punk rock attitude. Pittman and Rossi make a pulverizing bottom end that, along with maestro Victor, makes this Prong a true power trio. The title track along with the closer, “Changing Ending Troubling Times,” are but two more tracks on the 12 song CD that rip. Though Prong may not be responsible for bringing sexy back, Power Of The Damager is an album that is keeping heavy music alive while shaking up the status quo.
