Okay, every now and then I get stumped when I try to label a band. I mean, there are just no proper labels I can give some bands. The latest band to join the no label clique? Brooklyn, New York’s Primitive Weapons who just so happen to have very recently signed to Prosthetic Records. Prosthetic is already the home to a lot of amazing bands like Skeletonwitch, Trap Them, Ov Hell and Landmine Marathon and they have recently signed one of my personal underground favorites Everything Went Black so before I could decide whether Primitive Weapons would fit in on Prosthetic, I had to hear the band. So first thing I did was head over to the bands Facebook page and check out their tunes.
On Primitive Weapons‘ Facebook, they list themselves as “weird, heavy” and I think that about sums it up. They have some hardcore elements, some sludgy breaks and righteous, vicious vocals. Pretty much it’s just an all around good time. I really dig this band’s sound and I can’t wait to hear what they have to offer on their Prosthetic debut. Their album is due out this Spring. I’ll keep you updated on happenings as they become clear. Check out a track below to get a feel for the band’s sound.
