The Best of Pro-Pain [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
All of the albums that Pro-Pain recorded in the early to late '90s are worth owning, but if you were limited to one Pro-Pain purchase, The Best of Pro-Pain would be the logical choice.

The thing that makes Pro-Pain's music so intense is its use of density; while mainstream metallers like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dio, and Black Sabbath combined melody with brute force, Pro-Pain uses consistent density to make the listener feel as though he or she has just consumed an extra large dose of caffeine. This is one CD that will never be mistaken for easy listening.
