Prong's second independent release, Force Fed, showed great improvement over their aptly named Primitive Origins debut. Rather than resorting to blind fury and pure chaos like its predecessor, the album highlights the trio's developing technical skills as they begin to truly gel as a unit. "Freezer Burn," "Forgery," and the title track are tight bursts of power, alternately sung by guitarist Tommy Victor and bassist Mike Kirkland, and always propelled by the amazing Ted Parsons on drums. In retrospect, it's evident that Force Fed was Prong's transition from an average hardcore band into an outstanding technical thrash unit.
