CD Review: New Music From Trash Metal Giants Prong & Newcomers Burden Of The Sky

One of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of the year has finally arrived. The new release from the thrash metal band Prong was unleashed on July 28th. The album titled "Zero Days" features 13-tracks that display everything Prong has worked for since re-forming in 2002. The music comes blasting out of your speakers with the hardcore feel of "However It May End." They continue their new release with the speed of "Zero Days" and the shout out loud vocals of "Off The Grid," which display this band's aggressive power. The onslaught of "Forced And Tolerance" and "Operation Of The Moral Law" deliver a classic hardcore metal sound as Prong have found a renewed energy on this new album. Prong are currently on tour in Europe through August. For a complete list of live dates and to find out more about their new album "Zero Days," please visit

From the heartlands of Illinois comes the debut album from Burden Of The Sky titled "Cinis Ad Cinis." It was released on July 14th through Pavement Entertainment and features a dozen tracks of hard hitting Alternative Metal music. The new album begins with the strong, emotion-filled strength of "Blame My Creator" as you'd think this was a seasoned band. They continue their new release with the buzzing guitars of "Solace" as you find yourself getting drawn into the song's melodic chorus. Burden Of The Sky deliver a modern hard rock vibe on "Same Old Page," which is the perfect recipe to get the band the attention they deserve on rock radio. Their music showcases an edgier sound on "Kicking & Screaming," before the band wraps up their new album with the dark, alternative blast of "Matter Of Fact" and the chugging bass/drum groove of "What's Killing You."
