Not quite a year ago, Mastodon guitarist and Rochester ex-pat Bill Kelliher was recording Atlanta grindcore band Primate. Apparently the man is hands-on. By the time recording was finished, Kellier had joined the band. The heavy heroes in Mastodon were in post-tour cool down, and Kelliher still wanted to play. He describes the band as being more aggressive (?!!) than Mastodon. The band is currently shopping an EP around. Low Pan, Night Terror, and To The Deep add to the destruction. More aggressive than Mastodon Christ, I gotta see this.
Primate performs Sunday, November 25, 9 p.m., at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. 9 p.m. Tickets TBD. Bugjar.com.
