Prong is one of the most influential metal bands on the scene as the likes of Jonathan Davis (Korn), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), and Ryan Clark (Demon Hunter) have all claimed that the band has influenced their music in some way shape or form. They’ve toured with the likes of Pantera, Sepultura, Life Of Agony, and so many more during their career. That is why I find it interesting when a band like theirs gets ready to release an all covers album and I say that because you get to find out what kind of music inspired them. The album Songs From The Black Hole features the band covering the likes of Sisters Of Mercy, Butthole Surfers, Discharge, Black Flag, Neil Young, and today’s cover of the week courtesy of Bad Brains in the track Banned In DC. The track features all the fury that the original had, but with a more updated sound and amazing playing by Tommy Victor and company as they go punk on this record. It’s a good starting point for everyone to discover new music courtesy of Prong. Check out the track below and look for the album to drop March 31ST via eOne Music.
