PRIMITIVE MAN: Denver Blackened Sludge Trio Announces North American Summer Ambush


Following a June run of live abrasions through Europe, Denver blackened sludge trio, PRIMITIVE MAN, will wage war upon the US. Slated to commence on July 19th on their home turf, the band will devour nearly two dozen cities through August with their traumatic psalms of smoldering, sludge-laden sorrow. The band will be joined by Copenhagen hardcore/black metal merchants, Hexis.

PRIMITIVE MAN has spent much of this month on the road in support of their latest album, Scorn. Recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.), Scorn was initially unleashed early last year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse in August. The album 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, and, "one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year," by 

Scorn can be streamed in its entirety via PRIMITIVE MAN's BandCamp HERE. Copies of the album, on both CD and vinyl can be purchased HERE.

"Scorn's success lies largely in its equilibrium. It's strange to find something that feels so primal and simultaneously so well-thought out; most metal bands usually favor one or the other and end up with a misplaced affect or a misplaced sense of composition. PRIMITIVE MAN manage to balance both, and the result is terrifyingly addicting and unforgivingly heavy - the only reason we're motivated to recover from its weight is so that we can reach up and hit the replay button." - MetalSucks

" tracks of pure hatred, self-loathing and psychotic rage. This isn't your run of the mill bong-ripping doom metal that has been done a million times. No, this is the actual feeling of "doom" in audio form. Scorn will instill feelings of dread and fear in you and you will love every freaking minute of it. I highly recommend this one." - American Aftermath

"This isn't an album where douchebags are screaming because they think it's cool. This is an album where you just know there was despair, anger, violence and hatred in the studio with these guys as they were recording. That's what makes Scorn so worthwhile of your time and money." - Popdose

"PRIMITIVE MAN seek to numb the senses and freeze the heart using lumbering tidal waves of bleak, suffocating sonic nihilism, more likely to reduce those who absorb it into helpless, convulsing fetal positions. - Blabbermouth

"PRIMITIVE MAN delivers the kind of doom metal reminiscent of a vast, apocalyptic wasteland where the only inhabitants left are too busy committing acts of lethal brutality against one another to care about things as trivial as beauty or art." - Metal Insider
