There’s strong old school hessian vibes permeating this song, a jam that’s tailor made for vans with airbrushed wizards on the side, driven by dudes with jean vests. Extremely crucial. While a lot of people like to rock that look, or fuck around like they’ve been into thrash since Kirk Hammett was in Exodus, The Shrine are the real deal.
In the video for “Primitive Blast” they take us back to the way nerdy pothead dudes used to party on Saturday nights in the 70s and 80s. Homeboy chills in his room, alone, drinks some beers, and takes massive bong hits while headbanging and playing air guitar. I get a strong feeling that this guy owns multiple Cheech & Chong movies on VHS. Looks like a cool bro.
Straight up, this video is a tribute to everyone that liked metal before it was cool, everyone that fucked with skateboarding before the motherfucking X Games, and all the people that’ve had their mom come into their room and say “would you turn that shit down”.
