Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who wins? FIGHT! Prong #2

“Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck” by Prong is a stone wall classic from a classic album in 1994’s “Cleansing” which the band can’t get away with not playing live, unless they want to be arrested for inciting a riot that is. The influence of Prong should not be underestimated with bands like Dry Kill

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Linkin Park!

Not only should Linkin Park need no introductions, but neither should their major label debut “Hybrid Theory“. A Nu-Metal staple from October 2000 that inspired a generation, it launched the hugely successful career of a band that tragically lost Chester Bennington to suicide in July 2017. Whether the remaining members of the band will take

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Depeche Mode

For reasons unknown we’ve always associated Depeche Mode with Christmas and in particular “Enjoy The Silence”. A track that has been covered many a time by all manor of influenced bands and the second single from their seventh studio album “Violator” released in 1990.

The 80’s pop cover was turned into a staple of the Nu-Metal era with almost every band landing at least one, Dope with “You Spin Me Right Round” by Dead or Alive, Disturbed with “Shout” by Fears For Fears and of course Limp Bizkit with “Faith” by George Michael to name but three. One classic

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Battery.

We’re going to nail our colours firmly to the mast and admit that for us at Metal Noise, the firm winner by a length when it comes to our favourite Metallica album is “Master Of Puppets“. If a non Metalhead asked that age old question “Who are Metallica?” or even “What is Metal music?”, the

Vs. Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Static-X

As the 20th Anniversary of “Wisconsin Death Trip” rumbles on, it’s time we paid tribute to Wayne Static once again ourselves at Metal Noise. We’ve been Static-X fans since “Push It” dropped into our TV screens and spent many a DJ slot playing “Black & White” to an audience on an Alternative Metal night, though
