Denver’s favorite blackened doom derelicts, PRIMITIVE MAN, will wage war upon the ears of the innocent this autumn with a short run of live assaults. Set to begin October 13th in Kansas City, the band will spread their negativity eastward through nine cities including an appearance at Invisible Oranges’ CMJ showcase at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar.
Comments the band: “We can’t wait for this tour! We are playing with some amazing bands and hanging out with some old friends this time around. See you in the cut.”
Featuring current and former members of Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher, PRIMITIVE MAN will be touring in support of their critically adored Scorn full-length. A physically and psychologically eviscerating sound excursion, Scorn was recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.) and boasts seven hymns of hate, anguish and rampant planetary discontent. The record was initially unleashed earlier this year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse late last month and continues to reap media hails both nationally and abroad for a “totally malignant sounding record … that will consume you whole if you’re not careful” (Cvlt Nation).
Scorn is currently available via Relapse Records on CD, LP and digitally. Order your copy HERE.

“…the best worst thing that has ever happened to you…” – Metal Hammer
“PRIMITIVE MAN’s sound is heavy and almost hypnotic in its feedback-swaddled darkness, and Ethan Lee McCarthy growls like a mutant monster rising up from a lake of radioactive piss to wreak its hellish revenge. 4/5” – Revolver
“…one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year.” – About.com
“…seven 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
“No album so far this year has been as depressingly crushing as Scorn, and it’ll take something really empty and dank to match what PRIMITIVE MAN has done on this album.” – Metal Underground
“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
“PRIMITIVE MAN truly excel at conjuring a miserable, excruciating atmosphere…” – Scratch The Surface
