Review: Pro-Pain

“Shreds Of Dignity”
(Spitfire Records)

Now this band defines the definition of hardcore!!! PRO-PAIN is a very energetic, intense, and hard working band that has been around for over 10 years.  Hailing from a label none other than Spitfire Records, which happens to be home to Alice Cooper, Pissing Razors, and Danzig, just to name a few, PRO-PAIN definitely delivers on this one.  Their latest album, “Shreds Of Dignity” could possibly be their finest studio album yet. These aggressive music veterans have released over 6 albums in the past decade and “Shreds of Dignity” is proof that they are still as explosive as ever. The new album contains 12 brand-spanking-new tracks.  Songs such as “No Way Out,” “Walk Away,” “Casualties Of War,” and “Kill Or Be Killed” are all hard-hitting songs that really show the band’s true emotion.  Hmmm… I wonder what that could be?  Most of the songs are very fast paced with crunchy riffs that are backed by a powerful load of good spirited lyrics. PRO-PAIN is a  hardcore band that takes out life’s frustrations and issues through the power of music, and “Shreds Of Dignity” shows that outlet to life.
