True to the trio's ethos, every moment of PRIMITIVE MAN's Immersion is overwhelming; from the sonic pummeling of the album opener "The Lifer" to the brooding, unnerving guitars whirring throughout "Entity," Immersion builds and builds. The tension throughout the record is palpable. Hair raising tracks such as "Menacing" push and pull constantly, shifting from passages of harsh doom to an endless corridor of horrid screaming, blast beats, and a formidable low end.
Adding to the album's darkness, a pervasive lyrical anxiety erodes throughout the record. A stark look at a mirror, Immersion's themes tackle sobering views on existential crises, a general distrust among another, and the current state of the world. McCarthy elaborates, "souring your view on your existence and everything you had worked towards... allowing yourself become possessed by the darkest parts of your mind that you have carried around your entire life and not dealt with."
Fitting to these dark times, Immersion is an introspective look into ruin and undoing. As McCarthy explains, Immersion dives into the point of no return. "Now you're a grown man and you're fucked."
