Primary Censor

Industrial Thrash Metal
Texas, USA

Sometimes compared to Circle of Dust, Primary Censor mixed a hardcore edge and energy with industrial. They were gaining a lot of exposure and popularity in the Texas area before getting “on the wrong track” and breaking up as a result. They were about the sign with R.E.X. Music when the band broke up.

Eric Shirey was a member of The Bumpus Hounds before joining Primary Censor, and a few years after Primary Censor he formed Coarse after Flaming Fish Music contacted him for a song to put on the Full Frontal Lobotomy compilation. Matt Wright also provided guest guitars for Coarse.

Matt Wright went on to form Abstain after Primary Censor. He was also approached to provide a song for Full Frontal Lobotomy.
