PRO-PAIN Debut New Song “Age of Disgust” Via Metal Insider

ImageProxya

     WAAAY back in 1992ish I first heard of Pro-Pain and have been listening to them ever since. Now they have a new release and are still kicking ass!!!

Available Tuesday June 23rd on SPV/Steamhammer

PRO-PAIN‘s new album Voice Of Rebellion will be released through SPV/Steamhammer June 23rd in North America.  The album can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon.  Today the song “Age of Disgust” is receiving its exclusive premiere via Metal Insider.  Get a first listen to this punishing track HERE.

Aggressive, meticulous, passionate, righteous – all distinguishing traits that have come to symbolize the fundamentals of metal/hardcore pioneers PRO-PAIN.  Since their crushing 1992 NAIRD nominated debut album Foul Taste Of Freedom, PRO-PAIN have become a staple in the diets of heavy music listeners around the globe.  Their successful and enviable career has perpetually prospered throughout its course, and yet they still manage to find room to improve, and more importantly, impress.  Each and every PRO-PAIN album is a paragon of intensity, inspiration, honesty and unwillingness to compromise.  Their latest (and 15th) studio effort entitled Voice Of Rebellion is a testament to those very same qualities.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Corey Williams at Sound Lounge Recordings (Venice, Florida), Voice Of Rebellion features 14 punishing tracks that are sure to satisfy die-hard fans and new fans alike.  Williams and PRO-PAIN main man Gary Meskil share production credits on the album

The album kicks off with a blistering and infectious title track (which is destined to become a PRO-PAIN classic).  Songs like No Fly Zone and Age Of Disgust take the listener back to the bands groove laden glory days, while new ground gets forcefully broken with tracks such as Hellride and Souls On Fire.  The entire spectrum of the band’s musical influences are proudly displayed and are tastefully explored within the contents of this explosive album.

The album is available in the following configurations:

– Standard Jewel edition

– Limited edition Digipak (with 3 bonus tracks and double sided poster)

– Limited Edition Vinyl LP in red color

– Download

Columbus, OH Progressive Metalcore Band STRIKKEN Releases New Album “According to Purpose”

Columbus, OH Progressive Metalcore Band STRIKKEN Releases New Album “According to Purpose”

 

Buy Now via CD Baby for Just $7.99

“According to Purpose – sophomore album from this exciting band that has the audacity to combine the intense majesty of power metal with the modern aggression of metalcore. Great heavy grooves abound and the mixture of clean and death vocals work extremely well together.”ProgMetalZone.com

 

Ohio’s capital continues to be a breeding ground to a hodgepodge of musical talent.  Rich and diverse in its artistic tapestry, many bands have come through this city to grace its various stages.  Recently, one band has risen with the potential to shine yet another bright light on such a great city.

 

Columbus melodic prog/metalcore outfit STRIKKEN recently released their new album, According To Purpose. Order it today via CD Baby and receive your copy for just $7.99: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/strikken1 – or order via Amazon and iTunes.

 

According To Purpose serves as a heavy-hitting follow up to their 2011 full length, Long Story Short, which received two award nominations upon its arrival – “Best Metal Album” at the Independent Music Awards and “Best Heavy Metal Album of 2011” at the Columbus Music Awards. Shortly after, their track ‘Ashes’ was named the #26 “Most Downloaded” track on Rockband in 2012. With this impressive list of accolades as a launching pad, According To Purpose stands to make an even greater impact.

 

Vocalist Ryan Henry states, “Our style of music has vastly changed between our last album, Long Story Short, and our new album, According to Purpose. At our core we remain the same – determined to deliver great, hard hitting passionate music. However, the music and writing process has matured considerably. This record stems from a far greater spiritual center with focus on the depravity of the world around us, yet with hope and resolution. The music is far more elaborate and fluid than the last record while remaining true to the style that has defined STRIKKEN.”

 

This history of STRIKKEN begins in 2010, when guitarist brothers Michael and Josh Enyart, drummer Steve Cotton, bassist Josh Burden and vocalist Ryan Henry came together for a project inspired by their favorite metal bands. Now, with successful releases boasting no backing from a label, plus new bassist John Collins and new drummer Kyle Smith joining the fold, the band is re-energized and ready to show the world the beauty and power of these 12 new songs on According To Purpose.

LAMB OF GOD/RANDY BLYTHE – MY PERSPECTIVE

IMAG1574

I’ve remained relatively quiet on the whole Randy Blythe/Lamb Of God issue up until now. I have been doing a lot of thinking about this recently. First off, I wasn’t there so everything I read and see is from the other persons point of view, so I can only speak as to how I feel. This whole incident is a great tragedy for everyone involved. I do not think the fan went to the show with the outcome that occurred in mind. Nor do I think Randy took the stage with the intent to cause any one harm. I believe an unfortunate sequence of events led to this tragedy. When Dimebag Darrell was murdered in cold blood on stage it got real for performers. It is unfortunate that now an artist has to fear for his/her life when performing so I can see reacting to someone “invading” your work space (yes the stage is a performers work space). Venues hire security to try and help prevent madness like this from occurring. As fans we need to act responsible as well, I know we are to have a good time, but let’s not ruin it for others by acting a fool. I have witnessed up close fear in the eyes of the performers when a crowd gets to unruly. All in all, an unfortunate sequence of events indeed. Should Randy be punished? In my opinion no, I believe he is punishing himself enough. These are just my thoughts and I do not expect everyone or any one to agree with them.
