This record is definitely not for everyone, but for those who like their doom on the punishingly callous and despondent side, smothered with noise-ridden dread and bitterness, this one's for you.

The Needle Drop

Doom metal trio Primitive Man returns with one of the most nihilistic albums in the genre. For anyone who enjoys some pain with their pleasure.

Primitive Man second record to date "Caustic" shows a relentless and hellish sounds of doom and hints of sludge metal into t he mix. The LP feels very consistent as it flows to one track to another.But, one negative presented while listening to this record, i felt it was draining the life out of me and felt long-winded. Despite them flaws, this record packs a punch with its bone-crushing production and more abrasive style.

Primitive Man's Caustic might as well be the heaviest doom metal album of this decade, but that does not mean that the album is in any way good. As a matter of fact, Caustic stands as one of the most underwhelming albums of 2017; an incredibly tepid metal album that is only outstanding because of its sonic weight and nothing else. The lyrics are at times incredibly embarrassing and there is little substance to the tracks here. Not recommended.
