Primitive Man to Release Caustic Oct. 6; New Song Streaming

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 11th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

No doubt that when the album arrives on Oct. 6, Caustic will be a well-chosen title on the part of Primitive Man. The Denver crushers-of-everything are giving a first taste of their second full-length for Relapse Records in a stream of opening cut “My Will,” which you can hear at the bottom of this post, and if it’s will they’re looking to show off, it’s a will toward utter destruction. From their 2013 debut, Scorn (review here), onward through a bevvy of splits and the 2015 Home is Where the Hatred Is EP (review here), Primitive Man have done naught but rain terror on those bold enough to take them on, and to expect anything less of Caustic seems like setting oneself up for a skull-cleaving. Especially if “My Will” is anything to go by.

The PR wire provides due warning and heed for the taking:

PRIMITIVE MAN Announces Upcoming Album Caustic Set For Release Via Relapse Records; New Song Streaming + Preorders Available

Denver-based nihilistic trio PRIMITIVE MAN returns with Caustic, their second full-length offering of soul-crushing, blackened doom and noise-ridden claustrophobia. Recorded and produced at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cobalt, Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation et al), Caustic is twelve songs and over seventy-five minutes of bloodcurdling howls, abysmal tones, and dense, unsettling feedback spewing forth a cesspool of utter misery. With lyrical themes ranging from political corruption, personal struggle, and the crumbling social climate facing the world today, Caustic serves as a cataclysmic soundtrack for a world gone awry.

Listen to opening track, “My Will,” via YouTube HERE and Bandcamp plus all streaming services at THIS LOCATION.

Caustic is set for release on October 6th on CD, 2xLP, cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via Relapse.com HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

1. My Will
2. Victim

PRIMITIVE MAN’s music matches its name: a savage, sparse mix of death metal, blackened noise, and doom. The three-piece was formed in February of 2012 by Ethan Lee McCarthy and Jonathan Campos (all current and former members of Vermin Womb, Withered, Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, Death Of Self, and Reproacher).

Despite their primeval, bludgeoning approach, PRIMITIVE MAN wouldn’t exist without their savage awareness of modern humanity: simultaneously old and new, atavistic and groundbreaking, PRIMITIVE MAN stands to redefine current conceptions of hope, faith, and metal music. Years of writing on tour and the addition of drummer Joe Linden sparked a black flame in PRIMITIVE MAN molding the band’s second full-length offering, Caustic set for release this fall via Relapse Records.

PRIMITIVE MAN:
Ethan Lee McCarthy – guitars, vocals
Jonathan Campos – bass
Joe Linden – drums
