Colorado's Primitive Man and Oregon's Hell have announced they'll join hateful, spiteful forces for a brand new split due out on February 22.
The split will be two Primitive Man tracks and one Hell track, will feature artwork from Primitive Man's Ethan McCarthy and was mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Khemmis, Primitive Man, etc.). Here's what both parties had to say about the split.
Primitive Man's Ethan McCarthy:
"The world is rotting all around us and that’s what these songs are about. We chose to do a split with Hell out of a mutual respect for their art. M.S.W. has easily written some of the best doom/sludge songs of the last 5 years and we’re excited to be able to share a release with him."
"At the time I was in the mood to write more in the style of the Hell I album. Stomping, deep, low-fi. The lyrics are about the everyday struggle of crippling anxiety and depression but not to fear it. Embrace it and use it to your advantage until it subsides, if at all. 'Do not fear what you suffer. Do not fear the compression in your chest.'"
The lyrics are aimed toward being surrounded by greed and the overlords that control this fucked up place we exist in as if they were born in Hell. Hell and Primitive Man have played multiple shows/fests together and we’ve always been fans of each others tunes. Sometimes all you have to do is ask. I am excited for this release to finally come out and very happy to be on wax with those dudes.”
