Primordial is back, after 3 years with almost no news from the band, they pulled this new album "The Gathering Wilderness" out of their sleeve. These Irish Metalheads always have delivered a particular Metal style, while not completely Folk or Celtic, they emit a epic vibe in every song, also, the band is not Black Metal definitively, although some shrieks can be heard throughout the album, the music that Primordial plays is definitively something unique and this album, is with no chance of doubt, a masterpiece.

  I really don't understand why so many people labeled this band as Black ?!
Besides their first two releases contained a bit black elements the rest of their albums are mixed styles...black, doom, death, heavy metal, folk...all-in-one. I would rather call them Alternative Folk Metal.
