Mr Raven did a great job with Prong on Rude Awakening. Especially on their anthem Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck.\

There's one song that takes the opening sounds of Butcher and the riff of Madness. How did they get away with that?

Nah, did enjoy the last one. A return to the Cleansing era sound.\

And the song I mentioned is Not of this Earth, off Cleansing. \

Got to meet Tommy at a Ministry gig. Nice guy.

I love Prong too, especially Rude Awakening and Cleansing, this band made real great songs, they were really inspired... I even like the album they released just before Raven joined them, Prove You Wrong, there already were some Killing Joke influences in it... And i agree with NOF, they had some stuffs sounding really close to some What's THIS For! songs... A great band, but i've been disapointed by the album Scorpio Rising...

Check out Power of the Damager. It will (somewhat!) restore your faith.

He also did some remixes for the Whose Fist is this Anyway? EP. \
\
And Beg to Differ is a great album as well.

I used to read a lot of guitar mags at the time and Tommy said that he'd always been hugely influenced by Geordie. He did an article about his top 5 (or 10, can't remember) guitarist riffs and The Hum was top of it.
