Just back from a run. Listening to the nu-goth rock splendor of Lacuna Coil’s “What I See” from their best record Karmacode. Check my email. Oh, snap…new Primordial out this Fall!
Primordial are the most powerful metal force to ever come out of Ireland, pioneers of their blood, hope and revolution soaked poetic sound.
Singer A.A. Nemtheanga elaborates: “Some time at the end of 2013 we sat and began to plot a course for album number eight. We moved camp to a new rehearsal room and the ideas began to take shape. We felt it was time to try a new studio and engineer so we went to Grouse Lodge deep in the middle of Ireland and employed Gomez to come over and work on the new album.” The band’s idea was, of course, to keep the PRIMORDIAL trademarks intact while incorporating a broader, heavier more organic sound. “We feel revitalized, the hunger never left and we are ready for another chapter to be written in our history!”

Commended by Pitchfork for their meticulously composed “folk and black metal-inflected classic metal that spirals and extends and, somehow, keeps getting bigger,” and crowned the, “most vital heavy metal band on the planet,” by Last Rites, Where Greater Men Have Fallen serves as the followup to PRIMORDIAL’s critically-adored, 2011-released Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand full-length and boasts some of the band’s deepest, most meticulously composed compositions to date. The eight-track, fifty-eight minute epic was tracked at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma).
