If for nothing else than the shocking and potentially controversial cover art, we’re posting about Denver, Colorado’s blackened doom outfit, Primitive Man, and their upcoming 12″ EP, Home Is Where the Hatred Is. Fortunately, we also have the crushing sadness that comes with the pounding nihilism contained in “Loathe,” an 11-minute track streaming on SoundCloud. And that’s just one track of the four that are contained on the 31-minute EP, which was tracked at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.).
Home Is Where The Hatred Is will be limited to 750 copies on black standard gram wax and 250 copies on silver standard gram wax, and can be pre-ordered here. The EP will be released via Relapse Records on February 17, 2015.
Primitive Man will wage war upon the U.S. this spring with a short run of live abrasions that will include an appearances at this year’s Maryland Death Fest. Slated to commence on May 16th, in Omaha, and accompanied by Canadian grindcore perpetrators, Wake, on select dates, the band will consume 10 cities with their traumatic odes, with the run coming to a halt in Colorado Springs, on May 29th. The trek follows the band’s UK takeover with Sea Bastard. See confirmed dates below.
