North London heavyweights PROWLER have been notorious for an ultra heavy blend of hardcore and metal for a long time. Their explosive live performances, filled with plenty of crowd participation on the dancefloor, never fail to turn heads and convert new followers. Formed in 2002, the band’s early sets on their home turf at The Swan, a legendary North London hardcore venue from that era, earned them plenty of praise for the tightness and ferocity that they displayed. PROWLER’s volatile mix of straight to the point full-throttle hardcore and immensely heavy metallic riffing is certainly not rare these days, but through the brutality shines a band with an unmistakable talent for memorable tunes and fresh structures, rather than the predictable ‘chug chug’ of many current acts. Testimony to their abilities is the fact that many of their tunes became instant crowd favourites long before being actually recorded. Despite numerous ups and downs within the band, PROWLER have never lost their passion and drive. They continue to excel at creating brutal yet intense and energetic hardcore, delivered with a distictly London twist that gives them their own unique personality.
