Hermetic Library Anthology Artist Primitive Knot is one of several bands featured in a new article Cavern of Anti-Matter and the Enduring Legacy of Krautrock on the Bandcamp Daily blog.

The hypnotic qualities of krautrock are naturally attractive to those of an occultist disposition—just ask Julian Cope, chief druid (or “drood”) of the rock underground and faithful champion of ’70s German obscurities. Or just ask Manchester’s Primitive Knot, about their “darker, faster, louder, shamanic, occulted noise.” Sometimes, their records veer into a black-metal-punk horror show, but even when they do, there’s a pure motorik hypnosis that’s both familiar and terrifyingly strange.
