Evil Heat is the seventh studio album by Scottish rock band Primal Scream. It was released on 5 August 2002 in the United Kingdom by Columbia Records and in the United States by Epic Records.[7] The album's sound is similar to the band's previous album XTRMNTR (2000), but is not as abrasive and has more psychedelic overtones.

Composition[edit]

The track "Rise" was originally titled "Bomb the Pentagon", and debuted as part of the band's live set in summer 2001. In light of the 11 September 2001 attacks, both the lyrics and title of the song were reworked, and the revised version appears on the album. "Space Blues #2", written and performed solely by Martin Duffy, is a follow-up to "Space Blues", a song by his previous band Felt.
