Bio

While touring regionally in support of Red & Black, James had the great fortune to be introduced to the legendary Al Jourgensen of Ministry. Jourgensen invited James to play keyboards during Ministry’s 2003 “Fornicatour.” Darrell agreed, and Jourgensen loved his creative contribution so much he asked him to stay on for Ministry’s 2004 “Evil Doer” tour. Additionally, Darrell's keyboard and programming work can be heard on Ministry's Rantology and Rio Grande Blood as well as the Revolting Cocks Cocked and Loaded

In 2012 POF released the album "Pill" through their DIY label "Drakeraven Entertainment" and recruited guitarist Alan Stehman, bassist Jack Curylo and drummer Jarek "Jerry" Lukomski.
 
The last few years have been very productive--performing regionally, writing and recording new material.

POF's music video the for the first single from "Pills" titled "One-time Offer" will be released in December, 2014.

Reviews

Billboard: "racy, jock-grabbing. A powerful bridge between nostalgic music and forward-reaching visions. Ultimately relatable. A vehicle for catharsis, the kind that leaves you spent yet oddly invigorated. This is deep stuff, kids, that will take you on a journey that you will want to experience again and again."

Alternative Press: "Pound of Flesh has swiveled the heads industrimental fans. You'll like POF."

CMJ New Music Report: "POF's frontman Darrell Probst's adds a catchy, unusually melodic edge to this outfit."

The Album Network: "Chicago, home to many creative visionaries has a new pioneer to add to its resume. Pound of Flesh is unafraid to take chances and expand musical horizons with extraordinary ideas. POF is fiery and wicked, intriguing and deviant. POF features unforgettable lyrics.
