Prayer For Cleansing
The Tragedy (2004)
Prayer For Cleansing is recognized as one of the first bands in the metalcore genre. They helped to fine tune and solidify the sound that bands like Overcast had created. First appearing in 1996, PfC combined the raw emotional speed and fury of hardcore and with the melodic, enchanting riffs and blasts of metal. This short burst is one of my favorite pieces of the genre by far, 2 (amazing) originals and a cover of 'Salvation' by The Cranberries. This is a must check out for fans of early metalcore, my only complaint is that its too short. But thats what repeat is for.
