Reviews:

With Tommy Victor in the producer s chair and Steve Evetts once again coming in to put his trademark shine on the record, Ruining Lives has turned out to be a monster of an album. From the first riff-assault of the opener Turnover , the album takes you on an angst-filled roller coaster ride that marries some very old school, Beg To Differ -elements with post-punk, industrial metal, hardcore thrash, all the while retaining a modern and current feel. Fans of the bands legendary,genre-defining Cleansing -era and new fans alike will be thrilled.

Tommy Victor talks about RUINING LIVES :
This is the fastest written and recorded PRONG-album ever and it has more great songs than any previous PRONG-record. I am particularly proud of the vocal performance and I think we captured some outstanding sounds on this album. There s a little bit of a throwback element here. Ruining Lives is almost a Force Fed type of song. The album is a hybrid between NY Hardcore and some very modern, song oriented work.

You will find some Rude Awakening but also some solid, crushing riffs. I feel we have captured the best elements of PRONG on this album.  Come To Realize is something new - we have never approached this kind of time-signature. It really is math-metal meets pure hardcore with a crazy-ass riff. What s exciting about the whole album is you have your hooks, your riffs and something innovative that makes the album very current. This qualifies as the hybrid nature of PRONG: marrying post-punk, industrial metal, hardcore thrash and modern elements all of that with hooks and not just a bunch of screaming.
