AllMusic Review by

Long before they found their calling as a highly technical thrash metal band, New York's Prong was dealing in rather faceless hardcore, most of which didn't hold a candle to superior scene rivals like the Cro-Mags and Agnostic Front. Sure enough, their modest independent debut, Primitive Origins, is a collection of mostly uninventive two-minute blasts, which prove that the sometimes CBGB employees still had something to learn before quitting their regular jobs. A few songs ("Watching," "Cling to Life," "Dreams Like That") do show occasional promising flashes of things to come, however, and may interest serious fans.
