Primitive Race is back with a new album, its third, titled Cranial Matter, by a wide array of artists. The followup to their sophomore album Soul Pretender, it includes a wide array of remixes from a multitude of talented artists, all featuring the likes of former frontman for Faith No More, Chuck Mosley, who passed away just six days after the original album’s 2017 release. Members and former members of Melvins, Slayer, Dead Milkmen, Butthole Surfers, and more are featured on this overhauled release. The mix of industrial metal and rock will have your brain searing as the hard-punching sounds will shock your core. It’s easy to get lost in this face-lift they gave their previous album. Slowing things down just a tiny bit is “Heart in Real Time”. The album then roars right back into a techno-dance track, and wraps things up nicely and neatly into a perfect package of sound, making it an excellent in memoriam of Mosley.
Congratulations guys, Chuck would be proud.
