CD review PRONG "Unleashed in the West - Live in Berlin" - official bootleg

(8/10) While eveybody is waiting for the new album "Ruining lives" from Prong, the groove metal guys from New York released via Bandcamp a kind of "best of..." official bootleg which deserves to be mentioned.

The band recorded this album in Berlin in the Trixx Studio in a break between two summer festivals in 2013. The entire album is recorded live and hasn't got any filters. The whole session didn't take longer than three days. That means that you have to do it with a raw and basic sound in a very good bootleg quality. 

From the songlist point of view nothing could have been done better. All the band's highlights and classics are on the list. The playlist is also very similar to the current tour setlist of the band. Therefore it's a good souvenir for all fans who have seen the trio live this spring.

Cool stuff which bridges the waiting time till the new album which will be released in April.
