Primitive Weapons are a band from Brooklyn, New York that plays a very very form of sludge mixed with post hardcore and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Shadow Gallery" which was released by Prosthetic Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced riffing with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some doom/sludge riffing thaat dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffing that combines influences from sludge, doom metal and post hardcore mixed in with some dark sounding melodies and heavy/noisy to create a sound of their own and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are a mixture of sludge style screams, deep growls, hardcore style yelling/screaming and clean singing vocals, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very heavy, dark, professional and powerful sound and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Primitive Weapons are a very great sounding sludge/doom/post hardcore hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Good Hunting" "The Death Of Boredom" and "Broke". RECOMMENDED BUY.
