Prong is the definition of journeyman metal act. In their 20-plus years of existence, they've consistently been at the forefront of hardcore-thrash crossover and industrial metal. Guitarist Tommy Victor, who got his start manning the soundboards at legendary CBGB, has played with members of Ministry, Marilyn Manson, Killing Joke, and Danzig in addition to keeping his main project going. POWER OF THE DAMAGER features the band's current permutation of Victor with drummer Aaron Rossi and bassist Monte Pittman, and presents a lean, turbo-charged Prong. Largely stripped of extraneous elements, songs like the punishing "3rd Option" burrow into the skull with drill-like precision, while "The Banishment" rides a tight robotic groove complete with urban-disco beat and a metallic scratch of guitar that could almost be considered funky. Considering that it's been four years since their last release, there's remarkably little rust in Prong's metal.
