Released in 1995 on the Roadrunner label, Thorn's Bitter Potion was kind of an oddity, blending some Prong-isms with some alternative and industrial influences. Even at the time they were pretty obscure, and apart from drummer Roy Mayorga's numerous bands after this, very little seems to be known about them.
