Primate is a new band with Brutal Truth’s Kevin Sharp and Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher, who was originally asked to record the band’s demo and then decided to simply join the band. I think this album was already out there since last year before Relapse decided to pick it up and give it the attention it deserved.

“Draw Back A Stump” is filled with songs that are raw as fuck, gritty as fuck and loud as fuck. Most of all loud as fuck. There’s no room for subtlety here whatsoever and it seems they use melody like Paris Hilton uses her talent… everyone’s heard about it but nobody has seen it. This is a hardcore punk album with grindcore aspirations that puts a big fat smile on my face.

Just check out “Drinking And Driving”, the anthems that are “Pride” and “Wasted Youth” or the awesomely titled “Get The Fuck Off My Lawn” and go completely apeshit!

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
