Home Is Where The Hatred Is is the imminent new EP from Denver blackened doom unit, PRIMITIVE MAN. Spewing forth four vicious slabs of nihilistic, feedback-doused audio atrocities, Home Is Where The Hatred Is will was tracked at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.) and will be unleashed as a special 12″ EP later this month via Relapse Recors.
Already reaping critical hails, Heavy Planet boasts in an early review of the offering: “Buzzing throughout with equal parts callous disregard and deafening feedback, Home Is Where The Hatred Is marks another triumphant blow to our perceptions of the human condition. Ugly truths are never easy to swallow, and here there’s no safe alternative. PRIMITIVE MAN have snatched the torch and thrust it into our gleaming smiles. So what’s it really sound like? I’d imagine slowly dying alone would look, feel, and sound something like this.”
In celebration of its release, today Cvlt Nation, who likens Home Is Where The Hatred Is to having one’s “chest cavity caved in and stuffed with shit,” offers up an exclusive premiere of third demoralizer, “Bag Man.” Further championing a, “savage, heretical release,” Cvlt Nation commends, “a four song EP that drags your corpse across a field of broken glass, razor wire and repressed memories over the course of thirty-one terrifying minutes… one is continually abused by their output, with fiendish vocals mocking all that profess to worship a divine being.”
Get your feelings hurt with “Bag Man,” now playing at THIS LOCATION.

PRIMITIVE MAN will wage war upon the US this Spring with a short run of live abrasions which will include an appearances at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. Slated to commence on May 16th in Omaha and accompanied by Canadian grindcore perpetrators, Wake, on select dates, the band will consume ten cities with their traumatic odes, with the run coming to a halt in Colorado Springs on May 29th.

Home Is Where The Hatred Is serves as the follow-up to the band’s Scorn full-length. Crowned, “one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year,” by About.com and, “terrifyingly addicting and unforgivingly heavy,” by MetalSucks, Scorn was initially unleashed in 2012 via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse the following year.
PRIMITIVE MAN‘s Home Is Where The Hatred Is — limited to 750 copies on black standard gram wax and 250 copies on silver standard gram wax — will be released via Relapse Records on February 17th, 2015. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
