Denver doom trio Primitive Man have premiered a new track from their forthcoming sophomore full-length, Caustic, via Decibel Magazine. Titled “Commerce”, the new track delivers over 12 minutes of suffocating, blackened hell that relentlessly pummels the listener into submission. Check out the tune after the break.
Caustic will be released on October 6 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
The band’s forthcoming tour dates with Bell Witch can also be found below.
Hello, fellow ‘terraneans. Welcome to the inauguration of Stay Trve. I got to thinking that now, maybe more than ever, there are A LOT of recordings being released. Unless your job involves sitting on the couch all day listening to music, odds are, you and I are missing out on some quality music. Big time. To help counter the audio malaise and near total saturation of the music playing field, I present to you: Stay Trve.
With Sterilize, Unsane reaffirm their status as the kings of noise rock and show no signs of being dethroned any time soon.
Since rising to prominence in the underground heavy music scene in the 90s, Unsane have continuously been a driving and influential force in the realms of punk and metal for well over two decades. Their abrasive, non-conventional take on what is concidered “rock” music, coupled with biter lyrics and jarring artwork depicting real-world violence, created a lasting impact in the scene that can still be felt today. Though noise rock has still thrived and progressed (and has had a bit of a quiet resurgence in recent years) since the Amphetamine Reptile days, no newer players within the genre have been able to outmatch the tried and true formula Unsane has perfected.
I’m not ashamed to admit that my first introduction to metalcore was through the more commercially successful acts of the mid-2000s like Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Unearth and so on. Eventually, though, those bands fell to the wayside as I developed more dynamic and unorthodox tastes, as well as more appreciation for diverse composition and intricate technicality. But if there’s one band from that era of metalcore, and one record in particular, that still speaks to me as much as it did when it was released, it’s Walls of Jericho‘s All Hail the Dead.
