PRIMITIVE MAN and UNEARTHLY TRANCE in the singular are frightening enough propositions. Heavy to the point of scales breaking, miserable to the extent of inflicting a visit to the medical support services for some kind of mood lightener, these forces of unparalleled misery combined are so doomily dangerous as to almost require some kind of license from a higher authority.” — Cvlt Nation

“Seven nihilistic tracks of sludgy blackened doom and harsh noise… The two bands released completely devastating albums last year, and this split features a similar vibe to both, as their distinct yet complementary sounds each exude crushing heaviness and unbridled misery.” — Exclaim

PRIMITIVE MAN and UNEARTHLY TRANCE deliver exactly what one would expect; bulldozing riffs and auditory filth. This split LP is the perfect soundtrack for those who hate just about everything.” — Svbterranean

“With such power being constantly thrown around without much care, it’s hard to imagine what levels of destruction these two bands aren’t capable of. Whether it’s the unbridled chaos that PRIMITIVE MAN achieves or the methodical assault that UNEARTHLY TRANCE executes, there’s plenty to enjoy with this split and has much to be desired from fans of both groups and beyond.” — Headbanger Reviews

“Monstrous and horrifying noise, crippling and punishing doom… This is the sort of doom metal that makes sense in a world gone mad.” — Two Guys Metal Reviews
