Legendary hardcore band PRO-PAIN has inked a deal with the Chicago independent record company Goomba Music. The band’s new album, “Straight To The Dome”, will be released in North America on September 25. The CD was recorded at Little Creek Studio in Gelterkinden, Switzerland and produced by V.O. Pulver.
Aggressive, meticulous, passionate, righteous — all distinguishing traits that have come to symbolize the fundamentals of metal/hardcore pioneers PRO-PAIN. Since their crushing 1992 NAIRD-nominated debut album, “Foul Taste Of Freedom”, PRO-PAIN have become a staple in the diets of heavy music listeners around the globe. Their successful and enviable career has perpetually prospered throughout its course, and yet they still manage to find room to improve, and more importantly, impress.
Commented PRO-PAIN frontman Gary Meskil, “We intended to make an old-school PRO-PAIN album with this one, and I think that this is perhaps our most sonically brutal effort since ‘The Truth Hurts’. Having said that, the album does have a few tasteful melodic moments here and there, which in my opinion contribute to its depth and diversity.”
