Whenever a band gets to their tenth album it’s
far from a mistake. Pro-Pain
has been pumping out first-rate music for fifteen years now. And now with
their tenth studio effort, they have reached legendary status in my opinion.
“Age Of Tyranny: The Tenth Crusade” is almost forty minutes
in length and comprised of eleven tracks of loud blasting New York Hardcore
with a thrashy attitude. There are tons of catchy riffs, enjoyable solos,
and politically laced lyrics. Track four, “Beyond the Pale”
is and awesome tune with great riffage. It even has an acoustic part that
basically leads into the solo for the song, and also features melodic singing
vocals from guest vocalist Matt Bizilia of Icarus Witch. “Heads Will
Roll” is another good one and it’s a pissed off track that Pro-Pain
has been famous for. A host of other tracks are praiseworthy as well, but
no need to name just about every track. Pro-Pain has does it again, keep
it up gentlemen!
