5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable!! April 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Prong has re-established themselves as rulers of the industrial metal genre with the this latest effort. Great production, monstrous riffs, excellent overall stuff to bang your head to. The cd is awesome from start to finish. Mix up a batch of your favorite juice and sit back and crank it up! To be totally honest with all you amazon maniacs, it's really hard to sum up this cd in words. Words just don't seem to do it enough justice. That's how incredible this latest effort from Prong is. You just have to get it and see for yourself what all the buzz is all about! LONG LIVE UNDERGROUND METAL!!!!!!!!! F RADIO FRIENDLY MUSIC!!!!!!!
Peace out,
Scotty 2 Hotty

4.0 out of 5 stars worth the wait ???? March 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Being a prong fan since Beg To Differ, i was both excited and worried when i heard of the reformation.... Much to my satisfaction, this cd is excellent. a few "small" complaints though.
First off, the Vocals are a little irritating. Not having the sony budget didnt help this im sure, but also the fact that Tommy seems to have had a bit of Danzig rubbing off in this department. some of the Vocals remind me of danzig. not the voice itself, but the stylings. a prong/ danzig fan will notice this.
also, a couple of the tracks are, dare i say, FILLER material? Especially letter to a "friend" which is just a boring song. with 14 tracks on the CD it is not much to complain about, but when listening in its entirety, it can definately ruin the "flow" of the cd.
Now onto the good. The RIFFS! As always with prong its about the riffs! and they are both brisk and abundant. the pits accross america will be shaken up without a doubt! love the structures and speed of the riffs. even though the production isnt as sharp as "awakening" and "cleansing". But that , im sure, is because of label and budget restictions.
Overall a great and welcome comeback for prong! Very hopeful to see them in NYC soon... A must have for even the slightest prong fan...

2.0 out of 5 stars No One's Perfect November 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a big Prong fan. I have been listening to this album off and on for the last few months. As much as I want to like it, I just don't dig it that much. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple songs that are really pretty good (Entrance of the Eclipse), but they are of no comparison to pretty much every other song they have ever recorded. If I am correct, this is another case of the lead singer being the only original member. If you are just getting into Prong, go for 'Cleansing' or 'Beg to Differ' or 'Rude Awakening'. Old fans that still haven't heard it, I recommend downloading a couple of songs before you drop 15 of your hard earned dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prong proves again they are the greatest February 24, 2004
By Tommy
Format:Audio CD
Why Prong has remained in obscurity for nearly 20 years I'll never figure out. They have delivered the goods time and time again and just when it appeared they were done for good, they roar back with this. Unbelievable. The stop on a dime tempo changes, riffs, tone, vocals, lyrics, everything is right on the money and delivered with maximum impact. This is genre changing, trend setting stuff. I can't even put it into words how great this record is. Not to mention Avoid Promises is such an obvious radio accessible song, if anyone who works for Prong is worth a damn, they'll push it as a single. This band is too good to go away. They know it, I know it, and if you don't have this record, buy it and you'll know it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid metal album from beginning to end March 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
What's good about it?
Victor lets out a commanding 'Yeah!' to start off the opening track "Detached." There's no doubt about it; Prong is back! It won't be long before the throbbing guitar riff will have you smelling the sweet sound of industrial steel in the air. As usual, the vocals are delivered with all of the anger and emotion that Victor is known for. His vocals change from tuneful to down right throaty on "Reactive Mind." A tuned down 'chugga-chugga' riff only enhances his emotions. Machine gun like guitar work and frantic drums highlight "Regal." This track is sure to be a favorite in 'the pit.' Industrial metal is not known for its guitar solos, but Victor lays one down that invokes the work of his metal heroes.

"Entrance of the Eclipse" is an apocalyptic anthem that draws its energy from marching drumbeats and driving rhythms. Wait just a minute. Did I just hear some rock radio friendly tracks? "Embrace the Depth" is heavy on bass, heavy on industrial guitar playing, heavy on the skins, but a little lighter on vocals. Don't get me wrong, Victor is still brutal on the chorus, almost leaning toward a death metal delivery, but the verses are a little more melodic than Prong is known for. "Avoid Promises" falls into the same category; even more so. It has an unforgettable opening, followed by some smoothed over vocals. It's as if Victor is saying, 'You want radio friendly? Here's your radio friendly!'

Anything bad?
Nope

Bottom Line:
Industrial kept the metal scene alive in the early nineties when grunge was all the rage. Even though that time has past, Scorpio Rising is a solid metal album from beginning to end.
