Doom metal band Primitive Man have announced their new EP Insurmountable. The EP will consist of 4 songs, including a cover of Smashing Pumpkins. The EP will be released on May 13 via Closed Casket Activities.
To introduce their new EP, the group shared their new single, “Cage Intimacy,” along with the video. The 11-minute track was shot by Neil Barrett. The video begins with an absolutely brutal, high volume and heavily distorted sound of the electric guitar. The song starts off slow and heavy, then picks up the pace before returning to the slow beat. The video shows black and white figures, faces, hands, and a bunch of other images flashing during the video. Take a look at the video below here.
Primitive Man’s discography consists of an agonizingly personal and universal hell spanning three albums, two EPs, and a slew of splits released over more than 10 years. In 2020, fans and listeners saw the release of the band’s latest full album Immersion. It was a terrifying and confrontational album that demonstrated resentment and the unbearable in uncertain times. That’s nothing new for Primitive Man, though. The group raged against religious dogma, elitism, capitalism and the creature within that is desperate to burst. Other projects by band members show how keen they are to express their outrage at the state of affairs.
the Insurmountable EP is available for pre-order on the Closed Casket Activities website.
