PRIMITIVE MAN Release Epileptic Seizure Inducing Video

Denver nihilistic doom outfit, Primitive Man, have released a music video of sorts for their song “Rags”. The song of course comes from the band’s stellar debut full length, Scorn. The video is a repetitive collection of very disturbing images flashing on screen at high speeds. If you have epilepsy, please do not watch this. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Check out the weird little clip below:

Review-PRIMITIVE MAN-“Scorn”

By Lane Oliver

Listening to Primitive Man is like falling into an endless abyss surrounded by complete darkness, feelings of hopelessness, disturbing creatures of the macabre nature and psychosis to boot. Darkly cheesy descriptions aside, Primitive Man’s debut full length, Scorn, is as dark as they come. While some may shy away from Primitive Man’s malevolency, I for one embrace it. This is a terrifying yet enthralling debut from a band that will no doubt turn heads and should garner a lot of attention.

The devastatingly dissonant and dark doom of Primitive Man (Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire, etc) is enough to strike fear into the feeble hearts of small children and well-adjusted adults alike. A full length album worth of these malevolent dirges for people like me is cause for celebration, however. Primitive Man is currently streaming their debut LP, Scorn, in full a month in advanced over at their Bandcamp page. The album will be officially released on January 31st and pre-orders are currently being offered on their Bandcamp page as well. This record is well worth your time. Stream the entire record below.

Enter The Disgustingly Dark World Of PRIMITIVE MAN

If you are looking for some slow burning, malevolent sounding doom metal that is fueled by blood and pure hatred then look no further. Ethan McCarthy of notable grind acts Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire and Death of Self comes the towering beast that is Primitive Man. The group will release their debut full length, Scorn, on January 5th according to their Bandcamp page. At the bottom of the page is your first taste of this band in a nine minute song called “Antietam”. The song centers around the doom style while incorporating elements of sludge, noise and Ethan’s penchant for dissonance. “Antietam” is nine minutes of pure, unrelenting destruction that will leave you bruised and bleeding. I am excited to see what Primitive Man does on this full length. Check out the track below.
