PRONG — “Primitive Origins” LP
This is a band that has gained a lot of respect and critical acclaim from their demos and select live performances in the New York area. PRONG does what they do best on this seven track effort: a comfortable but not patronizing blend of hardcore, metal and industrial sounds. (Yes, industrial. That doesn’t aean they use power drills and buzzsaws, it just provides the guitar with a unique sound). This whole album gleams with originality and is very refreshing. Oh yeah, a cool cover by the art god Sean Taggart. Available on Mr. Bear Records. [TONY]
