- Primitive Man
Tickets = $10
Seattle based duo BELL WITCH have, since their inception in 2010, carved a unique niche in the metal scene. Utilizing only bass, drums and vocals to create a mournful, melodic take on minimalism and an ethereal but crushing approach to magnitude.
Their most recent LP, Four Phantoms (2015, Profound Lore) was recorded by Billy Anderson and is their most focused, structured and melancholy release to date. Four epic sentiments of funeral / death doom are orchestrated into arias of the four titular ghosts.
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).
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 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.
