One year after the release of “Straight To The Dome”, hardcore powerhouse Pro-Pain is already back at it with “The Final Revolution”, the band’s 14th (!) album. According to vocalist/bassist Gary Meskill it marks a return to the band’s old days who felt it was time to go back to thir trademark hardcore sound after a couple of thrashier albums.
Not that this change is mind-blowing… you still get the same kind of heavy riffage, tight as nails drums, Meskill’s growls, breakdowns and solos in all the right places and lots of groove thrown your way and as far as hardcore with a thick metallic crunch goes, this shit is catchy.
“The Final Revolution” is the first album since Fred Durst said he’d do it all for the nookie that Meskill wrote all the music and lyrics for and one glance at the track-listing will show that this guy still has some serious anger issues to work through (“Deathwish”, “One Shot One Kill”, “Mass Extinction”). Luckily, he gets it all out in his music rather than by talking to a therapist.
