Did you ever wonder how to make music that is epic and powerful without use of any keyboards, orchestra or samples? Well, if you do not know the answer, you should probably ask Primordial. They certainly managed to achieve that.

Primordial never released an album that would be rated less than amazing, and they still follow this trend with their latest called To The Nameless Dead. As I already mentioned, the first thing that came to my mind when I listened to this album was: "This is what I call "epic" metal!" Album has an amazing beginning with song Empire Falls (which is in my opinion one of the best Primordial have ever done) and all the others that follow are also great of course. Here we have again an outstanding vocal performance from Nemtheanga which sings with such passion that only few vocalists really could. His vocal work is always brilliant, no matter if he sings clean parts or he does harsh vocals. Other members are extremely "well-trained" too, especially the drummer which brings even greater epic feel to the album with his very varied and precise drumming. Album is produced and written as it should be, songs are not only very well composed but also have great lyrics which are written of course by Nemtheanga. Most of them begins with slow intros and then slowly evolve into great, timeless, epic masterpieces.

This album really is something special. You can imagine going to ireland and listening to this album full blast, and just taking in the atmosphere that is created. The only thing i could say negatively is that the drums seem to plod on, however they also flow well with the other instruments, so its not that big a deal for me. I would really like to see this band again, they were amazing at bloodstock.

Good album but I waited for the black metal parts in vain. Its folk and its post- heavy metal, but not black. Sorry for being such a tagjerker.

I dunno, this album has everything a masterpiece should have.. A great vocals, sick riffing and stellar production. Easy 9 out of 10, for me.

"A great vocals... 9 of of 10"

Well, the songwriting and production is really good, I just don't remember liking the vocals... I must re listen now.

Still haven't changed my mind, but it's growing on me indeed. It seems I just don't get albums right a way most of the time.

Well, it's not that I don't like the performance, the whole style and sound of vocals presented here that I didn't like at first. I still kind of think this is overrated

However as I mentioned, I have re listened twice today and I like it a lot more.
