Staff review by
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.

One of 10 best metal albums, which I ever heard...
Maybe the best?
No words can describe it's wonderful beauty and deep, meditative emotions...

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, doom, death, heavy metal, folk...all-in-one. I would rather call them Alternative Folk Metal.

While the black metal may be largely gone from Primordial's music by this album, I'd hardly consider them a folk anything band.
God Dammit Doug! Take off your hat, Night Moves is playing. Don't be a prick man!
