Primitive WeaponsThe Future of Death

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ This album, one of the first released on Ben Weinman’s Party Smasher Inc. label, is a hard one to describe. I can hear elements of Pallbearer, Dillinger, QOTSA, ETID, Mastodon… and while these are all good bands to emulate, this Brooklyn quarter weave them all together in a way that feels fresh and energetic. The back half of the album drags a bit, but otherwise you’ve gotta check ‘em out.
