    PRONG - X - No Absolutes - 6/10


Release date: February 5th, 2016

User Review
8/10 (1 vote)

An institution in modern US Metal, PRONG has been around for 30 years with a short period of hiatus at the end of the 90’s. X-No Absolutes is the eleventh album with original songs, but after the entertaining and surprisingly melodic Ruining Lives the new album does not excite.

Too often does the band fall back on stereotypes, and the riffing is occasionally no more than generic. Tommy Victor’s voice is characteristic, but does not exhibit more than the usual aggression, and although PRONG is far from delivering a bad album, it is even further away from the truly classic albums of the nineties and a step down from its predecessor.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
