Despite I have no doubt the goal of PRONG is to make a kind of totally commercial music and to sign with major labels like "SPV" or similars, I have to admit their are exceptional musicians and know how and when to make a good album. Being one of the pioners into the industrial metal genre and to make albums like "Cleansing" or "Rude awakening", more industrial and electronic oriented, PRONG took hardcore / punk influences from its far begining as a band and recorded this album here entitled "Ruining lives". In this album we can to appreciate good heavy metal riffs on the guitars but also industrial rhythms and fast hardcore punk songs. Three elements which become "Ruining lives" in one of my favourites PRONG albums. Clear and a little bit melodic voices, high technical level, good studio production and brief great songs which are welcome just at the first time you listen to them. Formed in New York in 1986, the band confirmed its talent more than thirty years after with this ninth studio album.
