Prowler - Enter The Night Album Review

19 Sep 2013 // A review by terry666

I don’t know a hell of a lot about punk rock music as I’m more of a metal head than anything else but one of the things that I do like about a good punk rock band is the energy that they have. Prowler are full of energy and the album kicks off with the title track Enter The Night that sets the pace up perfectly.

It’s a pretty short album tracking in less than twenty five minutes but gives a taste of what these boys have to offer with no sign of let up in sight.

This album has a certain swagger you can almost visualise the band walking the streets as a pack shades on, jean vests slick backed hair and white t-shirts. American punk rock n roll swagger.

Although this is an angry album a lot of the lyrics are about fighting back and not letting yourself succumb to the pitfalls of life. This is surprisingly positive for a punk band but still filled with plenty of attitude.

I know this might sound a bit strange but to me this is multi genre inspired punk rock. What I mean by that is there sound is made up of punk with Metal, Rock and even Blues influences. This really comes through in the track Fiend which has some bluesy rhythm and lead work.

Bitches of Bethlehem takes you straight back to the knife edge punk that these guys play with a hint of thrash in there for flavour. The guys really show off their licks and rocket straight into the next song.  Sh*t Like You is a full on track the way punk rock should be played fast, loud and angry.

If these guys can take the energy from this album and put it into a live show they will be making a name for themselves pretty quickly. This is a great album which is easily accessible for all those that enjoy high energy punk rock music make sure you see them when they hit your local venue.

About Prowler

Prowler formed in early 2011 from the blood of a hundred dead dreams. Collectively, Prowler has power, passion and hooks. Having shed the skin of their humble beginnings, Prowler has moved from a four to a five pronged attack. They have become a heavier, meaner beast; yet still retain the speed and urgency of their original vision.

2013 has been a productive year for Prowler with the release of their debut full length album Enter The Night in September, a handful of Australian shows, international acts under their belt - supporting Bring Me the Horizon to sold out crowds at the Powerstation (amongst others) and comprehensive gigs within New Zealand.

2014 was also an impressive year for Prowler, supporting The Misfits in Auckland and opening The Big Day Out.

Gig Review: Judas Priest @ Spark Arena, Auckland - 16/03/2019
18 Mar 2019 // by terry666
It was a very sad day when Ozzy Osbourne had to cancel his New Zealand tour, but it came with a silver lining. We had one Judas Priest show, turning them from being a support slot to full headliners.

ATU - EP Review: Point of View
22 Jan 2019 // by terry666
ATU's Point of View is an instrumental EP mainly focused on the guitar but written, performed, recorded and mastered in its entirety by ATU. It has an amazing cover, which in itself asks a question.

12 Oct 2018 // by terry666
Straight Up is the latest single and video from Ravenhall - Auckland based duo Chris Brebner and Joe Ravenhall. From my understanding these guys have been in multiple bands together over the years and they have performed as Ravenhall for around 5 years.

Gig Review: Queen and Adam Lambert @ Spark Arena, Auckland - 17/02/2018
18 Feb 2018 // by terry666
I was a very excited man as I headed towards Spark Arena in Auckland, for what is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest rock bands, Queen and Adam Lambert. Now purists would say it’s not Queen without Freddie, but it's worth going to see the show before making judgements.

Spook The Horses - Album Review: People Used To Live Here
07 Dec 2017 // by terry666
Atmospheric bordering on doom is what encapsulates this somewhat gloomy affair. This has previously been described as post metal, and there is a lot of darkness but this is in by no means a metal release and it wanders down the path of alternative music in my mind.
