Prayer For Cleansing only released a full length during their time as a band (not counting "The Tragedy" which was released after they broke up) but what an impact that record made. They took the best parts of 90s chug style hardcore and mixed it with a nice dose of At The Gates style metal. They were really one of the first bands to do this style and they did it so well. Heres a clip of Prayer For Cleansing playing the song "Sonnet" at their reunion in 2004. Also, the members of PFC that night played in an Earth Crisis cover band called "Destroy The Machines" in which (if memory serves) they covered all of Destroy The Machines as well as Firestorm. Great song from a great band...this is the version with the original live music, not the overdub from the studio
