PRIMITIVE VIOLENCE is the brainchild of Shroud Eater's Jean Saiz, combining her love and penchant for wild, grotesque illustrations and the production and distribution of limited edition cassette releases.
Primitive Violence cassette releases focus on the sonic output of wickedly creative musicans in a tangible and meaningful package. Between 40-50 pieces of each release is packaged with exclusive items, never to be repressed or recreated.
Jean's illustrative work has had her creating unique designs for many bands, labels, and venues, including: Churchills Pub, Idle Hands Promotions, Destroyer Fest, A389 Records, Divine Mother Recordings, and more. Get in touch if you'd like to commission a design:
