Pro-Pain - _Pro-Pain_
(Mayhem Records, 1998)
by: Zena Tsarfin (5 out of 10)
You've got to hand it to those stubborn New Yorkers in Pro-Pain for maintaining their consistent -- if not slightly redundant -- sound for so many years. That's not to say that they haven't changed since their acclaimed hardcore/crossover debut, _Foul Taste of Freedom_; new songs like "Don't Kill Yourself to Live", "Mark My Words" and "My Time Will Come" are driving, spirited and downright catchy. Still, it seems that the boys are using the same 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' approach to songwriting as Deicide, and both bands' respective fans seem to enjoy it. While Pro-Pain are not likely to win over new fans with this latest release, it'll surely appease their current following.
