MetalTalk's Gig Of The Week is from New York's ground breaking crossover industrial thrashers Prong who will be releasing their new studio album, 'Zero Days', through SPV/Steamhammer on July 28th.

Prong have been touring throughout Europe this past month including festival dates at Graspop, Hellfest and the Dynamo Festival and they hit the UK tomorrow, 18th July, in Glasgow before heading to Belfast on 19th and Dublin on 20th before returning to these shores for shows in Manchester, 21st, and London at the Camden Underworld on Saturday 22nd July.

'Zero Days' is another monster of an album, stepping towards refining the perfect Prong sound and another album that lacks any filler or lacklustre moment.

Musically, it hits home from the first bars of the mighty opener 'However It May End' to the last bars of it's closing track, 'Wasting Of The Dawn'. Every track is it's own emotional roller-coaster ride, chockful of massive riffage, ironclad grooves and topped off by Victor's ever-improving vocal delivery.

'Zero Days' was once again produced by Tommy Victor, with trusted collaborator Chris Collier as co-producer and engineer.


Tommy Victor talks about 'Zero Days':

"I must say a lot of effort was put into this new 'Zero Days' recording. From the minute I would get off tour, I would consolidate ideas from the road and form new ones. Again the focus was on creating good songs.

"We wanted this record to be modern as well as holding justice to all the previous releases. Again and maybe even more than normally I went crazy meticulous with the lyrics. I had built up a lot to say and I wanted to articulate them in the most intelligent way possible. I firmly believe the mission was accomplished all around.

"We are really pleased with the performances on this record, as well. It's a solid outing. We have the anthems, the bangers, the thrashers, the grooves, everything that makes up a Prong record. It's definitely a record to listen to start to finish!!"
