FOR FANS OF: PRO-PAIN, BIOHAZARD, HELMET, LIFE OF AGONY, CROWBAR, DOWN, C.O.C., HATEBREED Their fans had to wait six long years for the arrival of a new album by American metal act Prong. Not only because of the pandemic with it's countless uncertainties and upheavals but also because of a number of pleasant events in the private life of singer and guitarist Tommy Victor. But now Prong are back with a real bang: Their latest offering, 'State Of Emergency', has turned into the fascinating recording we had all hoped for, with the usual irrepressible energy of a group that has been at the forefront of the metal scene since the mid-eighties, and with lots of ideas that couldn't be more typical of this band: "It's a very 'Prong' record. I think it's totally genre-transcending and definitely ignores what's going on out there these days," band founder Victor outlines the stylistic direction of the eleven songs. Commenting on his artistic approach, he says: "I like all kinds of music. This record totally reflects that because it covers lots of different angles. At the same time, 'State Of Emergency' is very guitar-oriented and a typical example of my style which consists of a blend of punk, metal, post-punk noise, some doom, blues and thrash, with some pretty straightforward vocals. All in all, there's an aggressive East Coast flair to the album.
