Prong - Ruining Lives (2014)

Prong have been on and off since 1986, with a development in sound that reflects that length of time. Theyve covered hardcore, thrash, groove metal and industrial, all underpinned by the heavy guitar work of the only original member left, Tommy Victor, who has worked with Glenn Danzig and Ministry during his time away from Prong. The bands early material is responsible for influencing nu-metal acts such as Korn, sharing the genres bass heavy riffing and groove. Nu-metal has come and gone, however, but Prong remain, and theyre back with a new album Runinig Lives.

Opening track Turnover is familiar, featuring Victors signature guitar sound in the pounding introduction, which eventually gives way to a melodic chorus, giving a much needed break from the machine-gun-like instrumentals that dominate the rest of the song. The Barriers is equally as relentless, with high energy, hard hitting drums that dont give up their assault for the entire length of the song.

The verses of Windows Shut provide a much needed change of pace, rolling off the distortion on the guitar and adding more groove. It would be nice for the drums to follow suit. Instead, they keep an over processed, artificial sound, and as a result lack any real sense of dynamics. Its a problem that thwarts the entire album, and a listen through of Ruining Lives from top to bottom can be headache inducing. Its a sound that fans of the band, and the genre, will be used to, and perhaps 28 years into his career, theyre the only people Victor is interested in appealing to.

There are some great moments on the album, however, Come To Realize delivers with some variation in rhythm, as does Absence of Light, which offers a refreshing change of pace at the mid-point of the album. Generally, though, there isnt anything here that wouldnt have sounded at home on the rest of the bands post-millennium albums. Its a shame for a band that spent a ten year period from 1986 to 1996 developing, shape-shifting and defining genres to be satisfied churning out another album that shows little progression from the last. Fans of the bands more recent output will be pleased, if its more of the same theyre after, but newcomers might be best served by checking out the bands 90s albums.
