Primate "Draw Back A Stump" CD/LP review
“DRAW BACK A STUMP”
RELEASED: JULY 3, 2012
Primate is Kevin Sharp (vocals from Brutal Truth) Billy Kelliher (Mastodon guitarist) Dave Whitworth (bass Timebomb77) and rounded out with others who did time in The Despised with Dave.
Sometimes a band can describe themselves sufficiently. Primate according to Primate is "stoner grind meets Swedish/Japanese hardcore...". Sounds good to me.
Part over the top - Gwar, part aggressive metallic hardcore, part thrash and grind blizzard. Yeah, go with what they said. So good, I sought out and purchased the vinyl.
If Primate look old to you, then you won't be surprised that they do a song called "Get the F*#@ off my Lawn".
The Black Flag cover of "Drinking and Driving" is worth the price of admission.
Very much looking forward to the Union Transfer gig with High on Fire and Goatwhore! This night will kill!
