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.
