Primevil were a short-lived American rock group of the 1970s. Their lone release, Smokin' Bats at Campton's, has been described as "a bona fide stoner rock touchstone"[1] and was later reissued in 2006.[2] In 2007, the group was mentioned in an article in Classic Rock magazine titled "The Lost Pioneers of Heavy Metal".[3]
