Formed in 2002 in Kentucky as a basement band, The Strongest Proof is defintly going to be a hot band to check out. With good lyrics and strong guitar licks they are hard rock at its best. Heavy and aggressive without being thrash, they are an easy listen that people of all genres will like. Signed with Indiana based company Save Your Servant, the new album ONE PERCENT was released in December of 2005 by Phratry Records, LLC. The CD offers a clear vocaled, riff-driven ride that I was very pleased with. Deep, poetic vocals by Tomlinson, who also plays guitars, set off the dark tone for the overall album. A band who takes the power of their words seriously, you have to listen closely to understand them fully but once you do you will be as impressed as I am with the melodic lyrics. The Strongest Proof, if they manage to hold it together as so many good bands don't, will be around for years. I should also add that they are a generous band, providing free copies of ONE PERCENT to record party attendees.
