Formed by Meskil (ex-Crumbsuckers), Pro-Pain released their debut Foul Taste of Freedom in 1992. The record was an instant success and has since soundscanned over 60,000 units. Successive albums, The Truth Hurts (1994), Contents Under Pressure (1996) and Pro-Pain (1998) saw sales growth continue with combined album sales in the US breaking 100,000 units. All Music Guide said of the band, "Pro-Pain has managed to carve a solid career niche for themselves, built upon a reliable mix of post-thrash precision, and the NYC hardcore code of ethics."
