Listening to Primitive Man is a devastating experience of doom as performed by just three members.

Their discography of agonizing personal and universal hell is spread across three albums, two EPs, and a raft of splits released over more than 10 years. 2020 saw the release of the groups most recent full-length album Immersion (Relapse Records), a terrifying and confrontational record that expressed resentment and the unbearable during uncertain times.

With 2013’s Scorn and 2017’s Caustic, Primitive Man raged against religious dogma, elitism, capitalism, and the creature within, desperate to burst out. They keep the animal inside at bay with a rancorous and cerebral blend of the heaviest sounds. Splits with Hell and Unearthly Trance, and a host of others, have seen the band branch out into experimental noise. Other projects from members of the band — Black Curse, Vermin Womb, and Many Blessings — show how they are bursting at the seams to express their outrage at the state of things, in different mutations.
