Primitive Man has released their version of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream classic “Quiet.” Compared to the original classic punk-rock the Smashing Pumpkins provide, Primitive Man adds their metal flare to it, extending the song to eight minutes. Had it not been known that it was a Smashing Pumpkins song, one would not have known as Primitive Man completely restructured it masterfully. Check it out below.
The cover is featured on the band’s latest EP Insurmountable, which also includes the previously released11-minute single “Cage Intimacy.” The EP follows the band’s full-length album Immersion, which was released in 2020.
