Denver, Colorado's Primitive Man have returned with a new recording where they move away from their blackened mixture of sludge and doom metal by bringing in more of a mixture of harsh noise, drone and ambient and this is a review of t heir 2018 ep "Steel Casket" which will be released on April 25th by Tartarus Records.
Ambient style drones start off the ep while clean guitars can also be heard at times and they give the music more of an experimental and avant garde feeling along with both of the tracks being very long and epic in length and after awhile power electronics and harsh noises make their presence known.
After awhile the music gets more diverse along with both of the tracks being instrumentals along with some natural noises also being used at times and both of the songs sound very different from each other. and the acoustic guitars have more of a dominant sound on the second track and towards the end spoken word samples can also be heard briefly.
On this recording Primitive Man move way from t heir blackened sludge/doom metal style and go into more of an instrumental mixture of harsh noise, drone and ambient and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Primitive Man and if you are a fan of ambient, drone and harsh noise, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Life Of Turmoil". 8 out of 10.
