PROPHETS OF DOOM
The resilient hardcore metal band Pro-pain continues to trudge on with PROPHETS OF DOOM, the quartet’s 12th release. Refusing to bow down to the music industry machine, this fiercely independent troupe bring their brand of punishing low-end mayhem back with a discernible wartime theme abound. Tracks like the headstomping “Hate Marches On” and the groovy thrash of “Operation Blood for Oil” have got the vintage Pro-pain wallop with a slab of social commentary thrown in. Three chords and the truth? It has served this NYHC-inspired outfit for over a decade, as Pro-pain comes back stronger and more meaningful than ever on PROPHETS OF DOOM.
