Denver blackened sludge squad, Primitive Man, are plotting another round of roadside takeovers. Set to begin March 5th in Lawrence, Kansas, the band will drag their audio antagonism through a dozen cities, including several appearances at this year’s edition of SXSW.
Featuring current and former members of Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher, Primitive Man continues to tour in support of latest long player, Scorn.
Recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.), Scorn is a physically and psychologically eviscerating display of sonic negativity featuring seven slow, traumatizing, feedback-doused hymns of hate. Initially unleashed early last year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse in August, Scorn was applauded for being a, “totally malignant sounding record … that will consume you whole if you’re not careful,” by Cvlt Nation, “the best worst thing that has ever happened to you,” by Metal Hammer, “one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year,” by About.com and “depressingly crushing,” by Metal Underground.
