Tipping the sands of time oh about 20 years back…there was a metal/industrial band making a name for themselves on a more commercial level. Prong hit the metal scene with some grinding and melodic riffs; certainly set their sound apart from the mainstream. The trio released the album Prove You Wrong (their 4th) in 1991. I remember hearing Unconditional for the first time and became an instant fan. I thought you should relive it if it has been a while or check it out here if you have never heard it.
Prong was on hiatus from 1996-2002. Since the reunion, Prong has released Scorpio Rising and Power of the Damager which are both pretty good, but my heart goes out to Prove You Wrong. Prong also released a live album and Power of the Damager (mixxxer) since returning from their hiatus.
I had a very small window of opportunity to pick out the song of the day today. As it so happens, I was sent to the store for last-minute Thanksgiving supplies, and I had the Ipod in full swing. But as soon as I heard the song, I knew it was the right one. There is also something gratifying hearing my car stereo say the name in a female robot voice. (thanks to the Ford Sync system).
The song of the day for November 25th, 2010, is “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck” by Prong, from the album “Cleansing.”
I sincerely hope each of you is able to spend Thanksgiving with someone, be it a friend, a spouse, family.
I am thankful for Metal, and to each of you for tuning in today.
Have a good one.
