„Pro-Pain“ are simply tirelessly and somehow the band has a lot of „Motörhead“ or „AC/DC“ common. Not musically, but also in „Pro-Pain“ you know at every album pretty much before the first hearing, what to expect. So say evil tongues like, that it completely, in principle, sufficient an album of New York in his collection to have. This assertion lacks as „Motörhead“ and „AC/DC“ not a certain truth, because even on „Voice Of Rebellion“, the now fifteenth album of the band, are the changes again only marginally perceptible. While critics like to complain about the alleged halt the troops, so you can also reverse this apparent shortcoming vice and mentioned as strength of the band reliability. Anyone choosing as fans the latest work can be sure, that he thus gets exactly, of what he Meskil and Co. expected: Melodic Soli, Double Bass violent thunderstorms and the violent roar of the front man, of such always does not mince his words and continue with an enormous anger inside notes the poverty in the world.
For more than 20 Years blown away Gary Meskil (Bass / vocals), Marshall Stephens (Rhythmusgitarre), Adam Phillips (Leadgitarre) and Jonas Sanders (Drums) with pretty regularity repeatedly a new pound in the face! With reliable Routine Put us pretty much every two years a new album, this time it is „Voice of Rebellion“, hardly that of its predecessor 2013, „The Final Revolution„, is cooled. In their discography vary Mr. Meskil and his colleagues has always been at best the proportion of Hardcore and Thrash Metal, at the „Voice Of Rebellion“ again quite clearly tends toward the latter, yet the final result always „Pro-Pain“ and their very own definition of Metalcore or. Crossover. That's been going on for now 23 Years and will no longer also change in this life probably. „Voice of Rebellion“ bursting again just so angepisstem before Meskils Trademark Pitbull roar, rabid / groovy riffs and brutal double bass barrage, as long as the eardrum participates. Something stimulates the „Pro-Pain“-Mainman still on and he makes his anger in the established manner, passionately and with the usual emphasis air.
Pro Pain - Take It To The Grave
„Pro-Pain“ provide with his usual consistency and quality from. Legs and learn shows „Uncle“ Gary den Jungschwänzen, „where the Bartl brings the new wine“ and there can at most keep up the spearhead of the young guard. Away from outward appearances as clothes, all kinds of Body Modifications, hip Polit- and life settings, presents the veteran credible, authentic and genuine. This applies both for himself and for his sound. Were the last tasting all at V.O. Added powder in Little Greek club, went this time to Florida from Sound Lounge, where mastermind Gary with Corey Williams took care of itself to the production. Have come out 14 Songs full of anger, crisp diet and coarse alignment, the deputy could not have failed. Already the opening title track rolls down everything, what it gets in the way: „This is the Voice of Rebellion“, barks Meskil into the microphone and with such a lot of foam at the mouth, that one Fear and worry could be. But Meskils bloodcurdling organ is not the only, sustainable after a few seconds leaves traces. Even in the shadow of the horrid roaring HC bull neck is huge has been concocted. Fascinating and almost scary, it is, that it creates Meskil, to maintain the level for almost the whole season and, despite all the driving power and impressive hardness must also ensure that sufficient work perfectly and enthralling sawn groove.
But that's only the beginning. Songs wie „No Fly Zone“, „Souls On Fire“ or the thumping HC punk broadside „Take It To The Grave“ are the initial fireworks in terms of penetration and playfulness in every way. „Voice of Rebellion“ spoiled us with straight hardcore thrash like „Righteous Annihilation“ and „Beautiful Death“ and slight punk influences such Beeispiel at „Cognitive Dessonance“. Moreover, have „Pro-Pain“ on this album songs in the repertoire, which resonate louder and more powerful than ever, as the Monster-Groover „Age Of Disgust“ and the completely insane „Enraged“. The force is contagious, cold as a dog's snout and the song material is never boring. The continuous level, with the New Yorker for many years spice up their undertaking, has failed this time rough. With „Voice of Rebellion“ is „Pro-Pain“ actually succeeded once again, to get a shovel hardness more strikes, as still on the quite rough predecessor, But what is likely to be the ordinary fan just right. The merciless fat production by Corey Williams expresses a Meskilschen this Wutbrocken any case properly in the Kauleiste, so fans will have their bright joy! So rattle breakneck riffs every second from the stack, while skillfully between uptempo Ritten and pumping groove inserts the rhythm section swings. And forward is cursed, grunted and gerotzt.
Pro Pain - Age Of Disgust
Ultimately, is undecided, whether „Pro-Pain“ now actually suspect as the album title makes the „Voice of rebellion“ are. Amidst all compelling compromise the tracks are all played at the point and cut again and again Reinsvoll. Meskil manages a homogeneous whole of Hardcore, Thrash / Metal including a massive addition of heavy grooves. The mastermind is aggressive and straight over and you should not come to him stupid. Schon gar nicht, when it comes to gridlocked social or political views, with which the Pro Pain-Chef is always at loggerheads. Then there namely a neatly on the bib – in the form of Music. Overall, the 15. Studio albums of old hardcore stretching a sure thing and will make every fan a lot of fun. Be the price for the most innovative hardcore album „Pro-Pain“ also 2015 not win, but is beautiful, when in today, very fast paced world still has such reliabilities, which also in the coming years high quality are applied to the day. Although the recipe is now over many years proven, bangs it yet again and again. „Voice of Rebellion“ suppressed without end and rocks like hell and going from the first to the last note! In your face!
Friends, it's time for pain! Gary Meskil is not tired and Pro-Pain rumble again through the boxes! The New York hardcore legend brings us „The Final Revolution“ a small and delicate step „Back to the Roots“, but it is the last album was somewhat thrashy. Bandmaster, Singer and bassist Gary Meskil sat alone at home now and composed all the songs sometimes just single-handedly. Here is everything from self-reflected view- and processed, what you experience every day as. The result was Numero album 14, an angry grooving Hardcore-Monster, which presents the well-known and distinctive musical side of the band in the best light.
About the New York quartet Pro-Pain does not need to lose many words of explanation. Since her groundbreaking debut album „Foul Taste Of Freedom“, the beginning of the nineties was nominated for several awards, has the band around Gary Meskil the affection and respect of countless fans around the world earned and is now rightly regarded as true Hardcore Metal-Legend. All your albums are a paragon of intensity, Intransigence, Inspiration and honesty. The quartet sounded on the last two albums always something different and tried out new. Beginning 2010 with „Absolute Power“, on which one went to work with a lot of melody and new trends continued in the direction of Metal. 2012 was then „Straight To The Dome“ the accelerator again depressed neatly and fast hardcore and thrash paid tribute. Now it's back lot darker and classical works to. Way traps are the keyboard filler and harmonious songs. The entire Music and all texts has Meskil at his home in Sarasota (Florida) written and you can hear that. The twelve number of 14. Album were at Little Creek Studio in Gelterkinden (Switzerland) by producer V.O. Powder (Gurd) recorded, mixed and mastered.
PRO-PAIN - The Making Of "The Final Revolution"
Even if Meskil has always been the band head, so he could at times even have a fairly stable line-up. At least for many years he was with guitarist Tom Klimchuck another founding member of the side, who accompanied him to the very end on the permanent occupation dizzying carousel. This had already years earlier to fight from time to time with health problems and had to finally throw in the towel. So now rather less well-known musicians gather around Gary Meskil, support him well in the studio and on the stage mainly, to present his new songs. Thus, the surprises keep but even without co-songwriter thankfully limited. Everything moves at a high level and is just plain fun! There are no compromises and no gimmicks, once times were used, what can make a hit hardly find. „To make things as interesting as possible, I have decided, to take the helm firmly in hand and compose all the songs on his own. This is the first Pro-Pain album since the nineties, on which I wrote it all alone.“ so Meskil. The production is rough and direct,, the previous resonances it is entirely positive. Meskil: „The album sounds extremely pissed, So just as, like a great Pro-Pain album should sound. Mission accomplished!“
The twelve songs offer typical Pro-Pain riffs and beats, the latter being clearly jazzed by the fit Drummer. Previously the good Meskil too often used Drum colleague-Computer. However, the two guitarists may let off steam and shine with occasional leads and beautiful solos. The pieces are usually located in the mid-tempo, up on some uptempo escapees and rarely exceed the 3:00 Minutes, and that's good, because this are the simple pieces entertaining in the truest sense of the word. Meskil roaring its message out monotonous as always and who bands like „Hatebreed“ or „Sick Of It All“ may, the is this familiar stylistic devices! „The Final Revolution“ is a plate, the skin tough and with Irrem punch right in the face and this over and over again, twelve tracks long. This is exactly the shit here, for the boys from New York City have always been and has been celebrated in the 90s, because he blows through the head and sounds like he sounds: Pissed, direct and uncompromising.
The opener „Deathwish“ bangs neatly in the best and most famous Pro-Pain-style out of the boxes and Adam Phillips allowed here or at „Can’t Stop The Pain“ solos wildly. Drummer Jonas Sanders drives the double bass broadside on and the boss himself has allowed some creaky-crisp bass escapades, Pro-Pain are hardcore attitude to life and it will always remain. „Southbound“ on geographical root localization, the enormously repetitive and yet brilliant „All Systems Fail“ as well as the powerful grooving „Mass Extinction“ here are the hottest contenders in addition to the brilliant title track, the one does not like to miss after the first listening test. Qualitatively strongly sloping Filler did not exist at Gary Meskil always, also unscheinbarere songs like „One Shot, One Kill“ or „Emerge“ have their moments. Special favorite could also „Want Some?“ will, which, with its aggressively challenging Apostrophe tends towards rap and with initial on / off dynamics a little variety to the otherwise very homogeneous album brings. Happy to have such small outliers may occur more frequently. Also from the in „Problem-Reaction-Solution“ backings used it would have succeeded at all Love strong for Meskils, can give charismatic voice more. But that is whining at a high Nivea. „Fall From Grace“ animated irresistible for headbanging and with „Under The Gun“ ends „The Final Revolution“ with a perfect example of original crossover between hardcore and thrash metal.
Is that good or bad? Well, wer es straight mag, but in the previous „Straight To The Dome“ especially the thrash metal impact estimated, will be disappointed this time. Hier gibts im Grunde nur Hardcore Dynamik in your face, garnished with some fine solos. The new Pro-Pain-disc is again exactly, what do you expect from the band, and thus - as expected - so revolutionary, as it is unleaded gasoline today. However, this interferes with little, because „The Final Revolution“ is fun and shows, that the formation still neat fire has meaty. Pro-Pain make everything as always and thus everything right – you just know, what has this band. Especially production technology fits this time everything. The guitars fry properly, wummert the bass, the drums are clearly audible, but fortunately not overproduced and Meskils usual barking mad the ennobled product ultimately into a homogenous whole. Album Title, Cover artwork and finally the music itself lead exactly from, as indicated – Lower ram at full throttle all, what is also just kind of get in the way. Chef Gary Meskil ist Idealist, musically and politically: „My lyrics come straight from the heart and reflect my life experiences. I am very passionate about the course of events and interested in my role in the world. I sing about the plight of the common man and trying at the same time, not to teach the people. Because if you want to, that his opinion is respected, you have to have placed in the same respect to other opinions in reverse. The inspiration I only use myself, Therefore, my lyrics are always ehrlich and passionate.“ Permanent Napalm is in the air and Pro-Pain do not even think, to einzubremsen only one second.
Oha, I just realized, I have not all held here on the blog, what that Pro-Pain concert last Wednesday concerns. I was gifted with a most abundant Pro PainShirt, signed by the band, which was given to me solemnly by Sonja and I hereby sincerely thank you again! Since Sonja knows about my skull Spleen, she has with all the charm and all persuasion, the band tries to convince, that shirt is not only simple autographs, but equal to decorate with skulls. What came out here, shown in the following image:
The two old Warhorses Gary Meskil and Tom Klimchuck can not really do anything with skulls obviously – not a piece of merchandise decorated with a skull belt and so I have now on my shirt – as I was declared höfflichst – two skulls of the band on it, that simply have the meat and everything still there and if I disclose needed, I should imagine the budget without, namely, at all and anyway. Drawn in any case, two self-portraits and that of Gary and Tom, and what to say, I turn ne Saufreude
To conclude on the balance of this article I will not miss it, Expect the Pro Pain Website noted, on all of their concoctions of men can buy directly from the band via Paypal, Songs for gibts 99 Cents and ne disc as „Age Of Tyranny – The Tenth Crusade“ for $6.49. So Friends of the Crypt, buy, buy, buy! For my part I stick here now nor the song „Time Will Tell“ the crypt. I’m on a quest for vengeance and time will tell, gotta break the silence and bend the rules, it’s a paid vacation on a ship of fools!

Pro-Pain - Live Free (Or Die Trying)
With so much promise in our eyes,
why are we fighting?
Potential’s never realized,
and we’re all denying
the accusations of who we are.
We’re shunned and branded the most by far.
At best our freedoms are shorn away
with all dissension kept at bay.
and I know you know there really must be something wrong. The end results of getting fucked too fucking long.
Our social systems getting worser by the day.
Afford yourself another chance, another way
to Live Free………or die trying !!
Why bother trying when it’s all in revelation?
The cryptic writing’s in our halls across the nation.
So organize and collect yourself
and don’t depend on no one else.
We the minions are lost inside
an empty place where souls have died
for our sins and sorrows in a quest for better days.
Vital resources getting stretched too many ways, and it tests your sanity from dusk ‚to fucking dawn.
We’re mad as hell, now it’s fucking on!!
So Live Free or die trying!!
Give me in my language
