Prong - "Primitive Origins" (1987)

Prong's debut would have to be one of the shortest "albums" I've ever heard with its eight tracks amounting to a whopping 19 minutes in duration. Fans of the bands later material may not even recognize them at this point with the trio pushing a New York hardcore-heavy crossover thrash sound here. I can't say that it sits all that comfortably with me early on but the back end of the album sees things picking up substantially enough to justify giving "Primitive Origins" a few listens.

3.5/5

Aggression - "The Full Treatment" (1987)

Raw & aggressive crossover thrash from Montreal, Canada. Fans of early Slaughter, "Darkness Descends"-era Dark Angel & Cryptic Slaughter should find this interesting.

3.5/5
