When I first found out that Prong had a new album coming out I was cautiously optimistic to say the least because their last couple of records didn't really grab my attention. And brothers and sisters I love it when you don't expect much and then you get totally blown away by an album and that's exactly what happened upon my first listen to Carved Into Stone.

Prong helped shape the sound of metal in the 90's but in the 2000's they seemed to be just treading water mostly because mainman Tommy Victor's attention was on Danzig and Ministry and therefore he wasn't able to focus on Prong the way he used to .

With the band pumping out quality tunes like "Revenge...Best Served Cold", the 10's are setting up to be a very good decade for Prong.
