Love Life of Dreams, think B.O.M.B. is so-so-- but yes, good call-- great, classic band.

Do you like anything at all from Pro-Pain?

I liked about half of Foul Taste of Freedom but that was still a MASSIVE letdown for me.  Crumbsuckers were wayyyyyyyy up there as one of my all-time favorite bands and I was hoping for something along the same lines.  I really respect the work ethic that Gary and Pro-Pain have but it's just too dumbed-down/meathead metal for me (and really, that's not a slam against anyone tastes if you like the band!  lol).  They just do nothing for me.  I even bought Run For Cover(?), that album they put out with a bunch of covers because they had a Crumbsuckers tune on there and I thought they butchered it.  Definitely a band I like more for how they work rather than what they produce.

Yeah, I definitely hear you there.  I'm a victim of being caught up by seeing them put on a great show (The Truth Hurts tour) and bought most/all of their stuff since, though it rarely gets spun.  Of the half-dozen or so albums I have from them, I could probably get about 12-15 tracks that I actually listen to...

But back to the Crumbsuckers-- you saw them in the day, correct?

Just once on the BOMB tour.  They were excellent.  I really wanted to go up for that reunion show a few years back but couldn't swing it.  Sad  I'm really disappointed that they didn't film it.  Chris Notaro is one of my favorite singers.  He's not even that great but something about it is just so awesome.  And Chuck was a KILLER guitar player.  Apparently he went on to join the Genetorturers for a while and now he's doing so David Bowie/glam thing.  At least that's the last I heard.

I probably would have gotten into Pro-Pain if I had seen them live.  That seems like perfect "live" music with a huge pit happening.  But listening to simple, repetitive riffs played to a simple beat just doesn't work the same driving down the road as it does in a hot, sweaty club where everyone is going nuts.

I miss this band. Saw 'em several times on both tours (including at the long-lost Sundance on LI), and they were one of the better live bands in an era of GREAT live bands. I haven't listened to either album in a while, so I need to bust them out...

To follow on the discussion, I'm about where Release is - I liked about half the first Pro-Pain album. Great work ethic, music leaves something to be desired for me...

Hmmmmmmmmm, wonder whom you got the idea for this thread from  jester


Own both, love "Life", you know how I feel about "BOMB".

saw Pro-Pain in 1996 with Voivod and Crisis. I like their first four quite a bit, but after that they kind of lost me  smoking
