Currently spreading their negativity, hatred and audio wrath to the masses on a short run of roadside assaults, today Denver blackened doom metal agitators, PRIMITIVE MAN, give back to the community with a bonus track from their critically-lauded Scorn full-length.
Recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.), Scorn is a physically and psychologically eviscerating sound excursion initially unleashed earlier this year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse this past August. Applauded for 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, “one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year,” by About.com and “depressingly crushing,” by Metal Underground, Scorn continues to stain ears with its traumatizing outpouring of slow, sardonic, feedback-dowsed hell hymns.
Turn up “Lifetime,” currently streaming at Revolver, at THIS LOCATION and get angry.
Additionally, you can check out “Rags,” included on the latest Relapse Sampler and available for FREE download HERE.
Featuring current and former members of Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher, PRIMITIVE MAN are presently headed eastward on their latest rash of live assaults and will be making an appearance at Invisible Oranges’ CMJ showcase at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar later this week.
Scorn is available via Relapse Records on CD, LP and digitally. Order your copy HERE.

“…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
“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
