With rude and abrasive guitar lines that definitely conceives, revolves and duplicates a chaotic atmosphere of anguish and demise – using moderately some drone, dark ambient and experimental elements to create its nefarious and mordacious universe of desolate darkness and disturbed noise –, Primitive Man reveals itself a very technical and meticulous musical act, that combines perfectly the more atrocious aspects of their art with the creative methods of diligent experimentation and sordid minimalism.
Producing a very intense sound that can be exceedingly dreadful and saturated with a dying level of expectation, Steel Casket sounds as a perfect soundtrack for an horror movie; the perennial atmosphere of its disturbing darkness is a constant feature that resonates impeccably throughout the record, and its dreadful overtones surpasses the boundaries of all abominations conceived by the human sensibilities. Being basically a dark ambient record made on guitars, this is a very instigating and conspicuous work of macabre art, that will really make you feel as if you’re inside an horror movie, trapped in a dark cathedral at midnight, with a horrendous doom about to befall over you, with a fatal overcome.
An exceedingly impeccable record, that captures with perfection exactly what the band proposes musically – to produce a sinister, lugubrious and exceedingly horrendous sound, that resonates the nefarious expectation of something terrible – you can really describe Steel Casket as a very competent and audacious state of the art work, that achieves its frightening purpose with an astounding degree of lucidity and professionalism. Never being repetitive nor monotonous, Primitive Man achieves with this album a formidable result, that will certainly please all enthusiasts of exotic, tempestuous, afflictive and dense dark experimental music, showcasing a level of proficiency and originality that only a handful of other bands are capable to replicate.
