Prong To Release New EP Next Month

Like few other contemporary metal bands, Prong are synonymous with a down-to-earth attitude, stamina and a close bond with their fans.

"Since the beginning of our career, we’ve done almost everything ourselves," guitarist, vocalist and band founder Tommy Victor looks back at the group’s intense and extremely strenuous early phase in the 1980s. "Not only did we write songs and record albums, we also managed the band, looked after the merchandise, sent demos to clubs and booked vans. Then there were a few years with record companies and agencies involved to support us. Today we’re back to the beginning, we’ve come full circle."

The latest feat proves Prong’s great commitment: A new EP, available on Digi-CD and 12" vinyl, featuring two brand-new studio recordings and three live cuts, will be out on Steamhammer/SPV from November 29. The EP’s title is "Age Of Defiance." The digital single, "End Of Sanity" will arrive on October 25 to herald this thoroughly accomplished recording. More...

Brutal Assault Festival Band Upddate Announced

Brutal Assault Festival announces another band update for its upcoming 2019 edition. Tells the festival promotion agency:

"Let’s open this mega update with a black metal stormblast! Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world’s biggest black metal forge, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. And now DIMMU BORGIR have finally returned with a vicious work of art that is their latest album Eonian and they are coming to storm the main stage at Brutal Assault!
Wicked aural filth comes from the islands with GODFLESH, who are highly regarded as one of the pioneers of industrial metal; they took industrial to the next level with their fuse of heavy guitars and mixing it with slow drum loops and effects and their unique approach has spawned several musical styles since their conception.
Brutal Assault will also present a combo of iconic thrashers that need no introduction, ANTHRAX and SACRED REICH will make it to the fest alongside upcoming crossover thrash ministry IRON REAGAN and a staple name of the genre PRONG. More...

Prong Streaming "Cut And Dry"

Prong will release new album "X - No Absolutes" on February 5th via SPV/Steamhammer and today second single "Cut and Dry" comes online. The band comments:

"I think you'll find our new single 'Cut And Dry' one of the most hard hitting and intense tracks Prong has ever released. It surely represents the pummeling fashion of our newest full-length album 'X - No Absolutes' which is released next week, February 5th.

"It's also the first track we've ever done that has a dueling solo, where Dane Markanson of Glass Cloud and I trade riffs. I believe the lyric is timely, in accordance with 'No Absolutes,' addressing a climate of total insecurity. Check out this sharp new Prong. 'Cut And Dry.' It dices and slices!" More...
