Proven-Always on the Attack album review

Proven-Always on the Attack album review.

One thing that I fucking adore is labels unearthing incredible bands that you may not have heard of. Proven are an intense hardcore band from Portland, Oregon that drip in heavy tone and riffs on steroids. The moment I heard of them I was like, how the fuck didn't I know of this incredible band.

If bands like Biohazard, Brick by Brick and Sworn Enemy give you an adrenaline rush from every single release, then you have found your perfect band.

Always on the Attack is a seven-track album of crushing hardcore. Everything is phenomenal here, proper hardcore vocals, meaningful lyrics, and dudes that can play exceptionally well. Riffs are hectic as fuck with a strong 90's metal influence; definitely tipping their hat to Pantera and other thrash classic bands. This is actually their six release and my fave by a mile. As I said this band can seriously write a catchy tune and as their bio states they have played with Biohazard, Sepultura, Soulfly, Machine Head, Superjoint, Phil and The Illegals, Black Label Society, Crowbar, In Flames, Amon Amarth, Unearth, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Chimaira, Prong, Terror, Sworn Enemy, After The Burial, Bury Your Dead, Powerflo and many more. And hardly surprising given the sheer strength of their releases.

Proven are a band of extreme heavy tone and execute every song with finesse. Hardcore should not be wanky, boring songs, but as Proven prove; it should be compact and in your face!!!.

Highlights: Step Ahead, Run Your Mouth and the glorious Transparent (So Fake).
