Primal Instinct hails from a small town in the midwest of Sweden. They began their career in early 2015 with the release of an EP, and the following year they continued with a highly acclaimed gig at the local music festival PiP (Putte i parken) opening up for Europe (SWE).

After numerous sold out bar gigs, festival gigs, and much anticipation they released their debut album ”TERRIFIED” in 2019. 

Two years later they return with their sophomore album "DEVASTATION" showing that they've really grown in to their own sound and showing the scene that they sure are a name to count on.
