Junkyard Prophet, a heavy metal band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, just released their own version of The Star Spangled Banner just in time for Independence Day. You can download the track for free on NoiseTrade.
The band’s focus has always been on youth and their future, so much so that they turned down a major record deal out of fear it would water down their message. They’ve performed many shows and shared the stage with bands like Pantera, Regime and Savage. They’ve sold over 40,000 CD’s in the Midwest alone and don’t show any signs of slowing down. Their aim is to give the people music with a message.
