Denver, Colorado's Primitive Man have returned with a new recording which continues the blackened mixture of sludge and doom metal from previous releases and this is a review of their 2017 album "Caustic" which will be released in October by Relapse Records.
Distorted amp sounds start off the album before going into more of a heavier sludge and doom metal direction along with some death metal growls while also mixing in black metal screams at times as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Elements of harsh noise can be heard in certain sections of the recording while d beats can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the faster sections of the songs adding in a small amount of brutal blast beats and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in more of an atmospheric and melodic post metal style.
Primitive Man remains true to the blackened mixture of sludge and doom metal form previous releases while also mixing in more elements of harsh noise this time around, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover hatred an misanthropy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Primitive Man and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "My Will" "Commerce" "Sugar Hole" and "Inevitable". 8 out of 10.
