Album Review

Prong's second independent release, Force Fed, showed great improvement over their aptly named Primitive Origins debut.

In retrospect, it's evident that Force Fed was Prong's transition from an average hardcore band into an outstanding technical thrash unit. [The 1998 Southern edition includes the bonus track "Mind the Gap."]
