Pro-Pain celebrate 20 Years with CD/DVD release

Legendary New York metal/hardcore outfit Pro-Pain are proud to be celebrating their twentieth year in existence in 2011!

Since the band’s inception in 1991, Pro-Pain have toured the world countless times, dominated the stages of the world’s largest metal fests and infiltrated the hearts and lives of millions over the course of their incredible, and still heavily active, career. Their massive back-catalog bears thirteen full-lengths and a plethora of other releases including singles, DVDs and a live album and two greatest hits compilations to date.

Pro-Pain now proudly unveil the details for a special release designed specifically in celebration of their twenty-year anniversary; the massive CD/DVD combo appropriately titled 20 Years Of Hardcore. Set for North American release on August 30, 2011 via AFM Records, this behemoth collection of material is much more than just a “greatest hits” or random compilation of tracks. The CD kicks off with four brand new tracks to get things moving! The disc also contains four re-recorded tracks (featuring Pro-Pain alumni Rob Moschetti, JC Dwyer, Mike Hanzel and Eric Klinger), cover songs, and a fourteen-song live set filmed in the Czech Republic, in total bearing over 78 minutes of material! The DVD that joins the disc contains over 90 minutes of additional material, including tons of live footage featuring several full concerts, as well as fan-filmed footage and tons of extras, making this an absolute must-have for any fan of Pro-Pain’s patented, groove-laden thunder.

Aggressive, meticulous, passionate, righteous – all distinguishing traits that have come to symbolize the fundamentals of metal/hardcore pioneers Pro-Pain. Since their crushing debut album Foul Taste Of Freedom stormed onto the scene in 1992, Pro-Pain have become a household name of heavy music listeners around the globe. Their successful and enviable career has perpetually prospered throughout its course and yet they still manage to find room to improve, and more importantly, impress.

Formed by vocalist/bassist Gary Meskil (ex-Crumbsuckers), Pro-Pain have over the years benefited from substantial support from an ever-growing and loyal fanbase, international extreme music press and media, hard rock radio, MTV’s Headbangers Ball, and more, helping the band’s worldwide catalog sales approach one million units to date.
