The Crossover Thrash Thread
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.
