Denver, Colorado's Primitive Man have returned with a new recording which continues the blackened mixture of sledge, doom metal and noise from their previous releases and this is a review of their 2020 album "Immersion" which will be released in August by Relapse Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the album before going into a heavier doom metal direction which also captures the heaviness of sludge metal. Vocals are done in a mostly a growling style while some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and blackened screams are also utilized at times.
When guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them. During the faster sections of the songs a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard along with the music also adding in a decent amount of guitar amp noises, one of the later songs is also a harsh noise instrumental.
On this recording Primitive Man remains true to the blackened mixture of sludge, doom metal and noise that was established on previous releases. The production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover hatred and 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 "Entity" and "Consumption". 8 out of 10.
