Relapse Records has announced the signing of blackened doom-sludge outfit Primitive Man.
Formed in Denver in early 2012 and featuring current and former members of Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher, Primitive Man is drummer Isidro “Spy” Soto , vocalist/guitarist Ethan Lee McCarthy, and bassist Jonathan Campos.
The band released its malicious Scorn debut earlier this year through a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records.
The band also self-released a three-song EP in February titled P/M.
“We are excited to have the support of a label as legendary as Relapse,” the band says. “We cannot wait to spread our music further than we had thought possible. All hail extreme music. All hail pain.”
Relapse also plans on reissuing Scorn this summer on CD, LP, and digitally.
