A confirmed North American release date for the massive thirteenth full-length from longtime crossover champions PRO-PAIN, Absolute Power, has been set for later this summer.
To be released in North America this August 10th, 2010 via Regain Records, Absolute Power explores several sides to the tried-and-true American unit’s somewhat patented sound. While a vast chunk of the album immediately recalls standard PRO-PAIN NYC-style metal/hardcore crossover attacks, many elements at play on Absolute Power infiltrate totally new ground for the band. Recorded at Little Creek Studio in Gelterkinden, Switzerland, the record features ten thunderous anthems, bridging the gap between the hardcore club and the massive rock arena.
Formed by vocalist/bassist Gary Meskil (ex-Crumbsuckers), New York-based PRO-PAIN have over the years benefited from substantial support from an ever-growing and loyal fanbase as well as metal media and radio. Today, now joined by long term guitarist Tom Klimchuck, as well as newer members Marshall Stephens on rhythm guitar and Ricky Halverson (ex-Narcotic Self, Cellador, Stephen Pearcy’s RATT) on drums, the band’s worldwide catalog sales approaches one million units.
Plans for the band to tour the US and Europe extensively in support of Absolute Power are beyond imminent, they’re a reality, as the band has secured a stack of German dates this summer [see below]. More tour actions are in the planning stages and will be announced shortly.
Absolute Power Track Listing:
02. Destroy The Enemy
03. Stand My Ground (featuring Schmier from Destruction)
04. Road To Nowhere
06. Hell On Earth
07. Divided We Stand
08. Gone Rogue (I Apologize)
09. Rise Of The Antichrist
10. Hate Coalition
Confirmed PRO-PAIN German Festival dates:
7/22/2010 Nachtleben – Frankfurt, Germany
7/23/2010 Wackeln Festival – Bruederes/Speichersdorf, Germany
7/29/2010 Free & Easy Festival @ Backstage – Munchen, Germany
7/30/2010 Sauberg Open Air Festival – Ehrenfriedersdorf, Germany
7/31/2010 Nord Open Air – Essen, Germany

After 10 years, Methods of Mayhem are BACK and they’re offering the first track off their upcoming album A Public Disservice Announcement for free download!
Set for a September 21st release, A Public Disservice Announcement features Tommy Lee collaborating with the world. Starting in October of 2009, Lee and his team — including producer Scott Humphrey, singer-guitarist J3 amongst others — wrote and recorded songs for the new album, then made the core components of each available for download on thepublicrecord.com to anyone anywhere who wished to add their playing or otherwise re-interpret the music.
Lee listened to every single submission that was uploaded, chose the best, and integrated the actual audio tracks into the album’s final cuts to create the finished product that is A Public Disservice Announcement.
