PRIMITIVE MAN: Album Streaming In Full Courtesy Of The Obelisk

In honor of its imminent release just one week away, today fine ministers of doom at The Obelisk are streaming Scorn, the harrowing new full-length from Denver misanthropes PRIMITIVE MAN, in its entirety!

A blackened doomcentric anger parade that’s both physically and mentally crippling, Scorn was initially unleashed earlier this year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records and reaped critical hails both nationally and abroad for a “totally malignant sounding record … that will consume you whole if you’re not careful” (Cvlt Nation).

Recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.), PRIMITIVE MAN‘s Scorn boasts seven smothering psalms of hate, despair and rampant discontent for the world and all those in it. Metal Hammer dubs it “the best worst thing that has ever happened to you.” agrees crowning Scorn, ‘”…one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year.” Adds Revolver in a 4/5 review, “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.”

“…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. This band has created the musical equivalent of survival for survival’s sake. There is nothing pretty here.” – Metal Insider

PRIMITIVE MAN truly excel at conjuring a miserable, excruciating atmosphere…” – Scratch The Surface
