Denver misery makers, PRIMITIVE MAN, fresh off a mammoth European live takeover, are pleased to bring the frowns with the twisted visual companion to the track “Loathe.” The filth-ridden number comes by way of the trio’s Home Is Where The Hatred Is EP, released via Relapse Records earlier this year.
Crowned, “…an ugly, battered, seething bastard that will beat you with a jagged piece of metal,” by Metal Injection and highly recommended, “for those who appreciate the blackest, bleakest realms of sludge,” by Revolver, Home Is Where The Hatred Is was tracked at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.) and delivers four sordid psalms of the band’s now-signature brand of vicious, depressing, feedback-sodden severity.
Directed by Marcos Morales and Neil Barrett and produced by vocalist/guitarist Ethan McCarthy and Jonathan Campos at Dirty City Studios, the marathon, near-twelve-minute video clip for “Loathe” is fittingly dark, dismal and rampantly disturbing. Embracing violence, hopelessness, drug abuse, disease, destitution and all-purpose self-destruction, “Loathe” drags its viewers to the darkest bowels of human existence.
Feel better about your life with “Loathe,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.
And if that’s not enough to bring you down, you can still check out PRIMITIVE MAN’s equally disturbing “Bag Man” video still bringing the gloom at Noisey at THIS LOCATION.
