    Primitive Man

    Doom Metal

    Denver’s PRIMITIVE MAN’s music matches its name: a savage, sparse mix of death metal, blackened noise, and doom riffs. The threepiece was formed in February of 2012 by Ethan Lee McCarthy, Jonathan Campos, and Bennet Kennedy (all current and former members of Vermin Womb, Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher). In October of 2012 the band recorded their debut LP Scorn at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt, Catheter, CTTTOAFF). Scorn was released a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records. After the release of Scorn, the band parted ways with Kennedy and recruited Isidro "Spy" Soto to temporarily take over on drums for a number of tours/releases before settling on a permanent replacement in drummer Joe Linden in 2015. The band also self-released a three-song EP in February titled P/M.


    The unique metal hybridization of Scorn caught the attention of Relapse, who liked the record enough to sign the band and reissue the full-length in summer 2013. Dubbed a "totally malignant sounding record and one that will consume you whole if you’re not careful,” by Cvlt Nation and called “the best worst thing that has ever happened to you,” in an 8/10 review from Metal Hammer, Scorn found PRIMITIVE MAN celebrating a slow-roasted apocalypse through seven suffocating hymns of hatred, disease and sonic deviance. The record put the band on the map for many listeners, and enabled PRIMITIVE MAN to embark on a relentless touring schedule that would soon see the band playing live shows across the US and Europe (often for the vast majority of the year) in company with acts such as Magrudergrind, Weekend Nachos, Hexis, Reproacher, Fister, Celeste, Opium Lord, and Northless. PRIMITIVE MAN also played Denver Black Sky in 2013 alongside Relapse brethren Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Skinless, Iron Reagan, Mammoth grinder, Call of the Void, and Weekend Nachos.


    All of Ethan McCarthy’s projects have been prolific, and PRIMITIVE MAN is no exception – the band released four splits between 2013 and 2015, and dropped another bombshell of nihility in 2015 with its Relapse EP Home Is Where The Hatred Is. The EP was well-received by publications including Metal Injection, MetalSucks, Revolver, and Exclaim!, the latter of who stated, “unapologetically bleak and permeated by loathing and hostility, Home Is Where The Hatred Is will either leave you wanting more or contemplating teetering off a ledge.” Despite their primeval, bludgeoning approach, PRIMITIVE MAN wouldn’t exist without their savage awareness of modern humanity: simultaneously old and new, atavistic and groundbreaking, PRIMITIVE MAN stands to redefine current conceptions of hope, faith, and metal music.

    Cave Bastard

    Doom Metal

    From beneath the slabs of the subterranean suburbs of San Diego emerges society’s scum: CAVE BASTARD. Heavy, apocalyptic, and loud, the band was formed in 2014 by Troy Oftedal (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Piglife) and Nick Padron (ex-Bridge Jumper) out of a love for everything heavy and loud. They proceeded to search out the rest of the bastards needed to execute their vision of sonic devastation, soon adding rhythm guitarist Chase Ferguson (ex-Bridge Jumper), vocalist Steve Pearce (Gutrot, Ritual Torture), and drummer Steven Reed (Age Of Collapse). The band began writing and honing their tone creating a massively destructive soundscape in preparation for the coming of The Bastard. 

    “Featuring past members of Cattle Decapitation and Ritual Torture. Cave Bastard packed noise and ferocity into a terse set list laced with sludge. Frontman Stephen Pearce asserted powerful vocal dominance as the rest of the band built a sonically tight foundation.” - Christian Redelsperger - Editor at SDMETAL

    "Cave Bastard combines elements of sludge, death metal and hardcore to create an unrelenting, abrasive assault on heavy metal with a ferocious live energy." - Midnite Collective

    "To conclude this ginormous round-up, I’ve selected the two tracks now streaming from a split release by BLK OPS from Austin, Texas, and San Diego’s Cave Bastard. The split will be released on August 25 by Portland (Oregon)-based Accident Prone Records.

    The first of those tracks is the beautifully named “Hallucinogenic Bomb Vest” by BLK OPS (whose three-man line-up features members of Kill the Client, Clrvoyant, and Pornohelmüt). True to its name, it’s explosively battering, yet the memorable strands of desolate melody in the song also have an un-real quality, like the soundtrack to a waking nightmare. Terrifically grim, but terrifically vibrant stuff here.

    Cave Bastard’s ranks include former members of Cattle Decapitation, Bridge Jumper, and Ritual Torture as well as members of Gutrot and Age of Collapse. Their slice of audio punishment in the stream below is “Violent Perpetuator“. This makes a good complement for that BLK OPS track. It throbs with lethal energy, hammering and buzzing, brawling and mangling, remorselessly rampaging through a hopped-up dose of death metal, hardcore, and sludge that spikes the bullseye." - No Clean Singing

  • SIXES

    SIXES

    Doom Metal

    Sixes are a blackened doom/sludge band from Southern California. Active since 2016, the band performs an aggressively depressing sound heavily based in drug abuse and misery. They are known to elicit the statement of "Worship Amps Not Gods" as part of their ethos. (source:http://riffipedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sixes)

    Like all good sludge bands, Sixes know their way around menacing feedback that will probably give you an irregular heartbeat (or best case scenario: tinnitus).
    -Nic Huber, Metal Injection

    "If I could describe SIXES in one word, it’d be “Grindhouse.” Not because their craft is shabby, but because the approach to their core focus, even in this day and age, is taboo, violent, and abrasive."
    -Elizabeth Gore, Doomed & Stoned.

    "This has all that a growing sludge fan needs: slow riffs - check, sandy growling bass - check, claustrophobic drums - check, feedback - check"
    -Regnars Breikss, Shit Regnar Says.

    "A powerful knockout session to your senses."
    -Marty Jones, Vitriol Inc.

    "If you’ve got 10 minutes and want to have the foulness of your mood reinforced, the four-piece work in defiance of their regional climate to kick the shit out of your ears for a while. Sure enough, it’ll make your sunny day dark."
    -JJ Koczan, The Obelisk
