Primitive Age

Rated 3.78/5 (75.56%) (9 Votes)

Primitive Age is old-school Heavy/Speed Metal to the core – so much so that this demo is primarily a tape release. This has a raw, early 80s vibe reminiscent of early Venom and Slayer at times and maybe even a bit of Kill 'em All-era Metallica, though for a more recent comparison I couldn't help but think a little bit of Ottawa's Iron Dogs and Bastardator (R.I.P.) Yeah, I could probably have come up with better-known bands for comparison, but where's the fun in that?

Raucous vocals, no-nonsense abrasive heavy riffs, catchy solos and just plain old-school fun. A lot of bands try this these days, but not that many do it as well as Bat. I'm certainly looking forward to a full-length release from these guys.
