About Primitive Man

An American sludge/doom metal trio based out of Denver, Colorado, Primitive Man crafts lugubrious and relentlessly bleak slabs of sonic misery that invoke names like Bell Witch, Dragged Into Sunlight, Graves at Sea, and Thou. Formed in 2012, the band, which features Ethan Lee McCarthy, Jonathan Campos, and Joe Linden, released its debut long-player, Scorn, on Relapse Records in 2013. A sophomore effort, the aptly titled Caustic, emerged in 2017, again on Relapse. Their third full-length, Immersion, the most anguished-sounding release to date, followed in 2020. ~ James Christopher Monger
