|Denver, Colorado's Primitive Man was formed in February of 2012 by Ethan Lee McCarthy, Jonathan Campos, and Bennet Kennedy (current and former members of Withered, Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, Death Of Self and Reproacher).
In October of 2012 they recorded their debut LP Scorn at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt, Catheter, Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire). Scorn was released with a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records. After the release of Scorn the band parted ways with Kennedy and recruited Isidro "Spy" Soto to take over on drums. The band also self-released a three-song EP in February titled P//M.
Primitive Man unleashed a filthy, malignant maelstrom of blackened doom on their debut album Scorn. Thrillingly misanthropic in their approach, Primitive Man drench their post-apocalyptic vision of the world in waves of feedback, pummeling guitars and hopelessly frightening vocals. If a bright end of summer record is what you're in need of, run as fast as you can tell from Primitive Man's Scorn-this is grade-A hateful, soul-annihilating music of the darkest order. Dubbed a "totally malignant sounding record and one that will consume you whole if you're not careful", by Cvlt Nation, commended for merging "the oppressive weight of doom with the misanthropic bile of black metal" by Blabbermouth and called, "the best worst thing that has ever happened to you," in an 8/10 review from Metal Hammer, Scorn finds Primitive Man celebrating a slow-roasted apocalypse through seven suffocating hymns of hatred, disease and sonic deviance.
In June of 2013, Primitive Man signed to Relapse Records. Relapse will reissue Scorn in late Summer 2013. Primitive Man will tour the US from July-August with Reproacher.
