Denver, Colorado’s Primitive Man was formed in February of 2012 by Ethan Lee McCarthy, Jonathan Campos, and Bennet Kennedy (current and former members of Vermin Womb, Withered, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Death of Self and Reproacher).

In October of 2012 they recorded their debut LP "Scorn" at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cobalt, Catheter, CTTTOAFF). Scorn was released a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records. After the release of "Scorn" the band parted ways with Kennedy and recruited Isidro "Spy" Soto to take over on drums. In June of 2013, Primitive Man signed to Relapse Records. Relapse reissued Scorn in August of 2013.

In 2014 the band released a 4 split records with bands such as Hessian, Fister, Hexis, Xaphan and one Noise tape EP in February titled P//M. For these releases the band worked with reputable underground record labels such as Halo of Flies, A389, Init Records, and Tartarus for these releases.

Primitive Man unleashed a filthy, malignant maelstrom of blackened doom on their debut album ‘Scorn. Thrillingly misanthropic in their approach, Primitive Man drench their post-apocalyptic vision of the world in waves of feedback, pummeling guitars and hopelessly frightening vocals. If a bright end of summer record is what you’re in need of, run as fast as you can from Primitive Man’s ‘Scorn’—this is grade-a hateful, soul-annihilating music of the darkest order. Dubbed a " totally malignant sounding record and one that will consume you whole if you’re not careful,” by Cvlt Nation, commended for merging “the oppressive weight of doom with the misanthropic bile of black metal” by Blabbermouth and called, “the best worst thing that has ever happened to you,” in an 8/10 review from Metal Hammer, ‘Scorn’ finds Primitive Man celebrating a slow-roasted apocalypse through seven suffocating hymns of hatred, disease and sonic deviance.
