Rating:
7.8
The low-key, reflective "Stolen Years" and suspiciously danceable "To Hell Or The Hangman" painted Exile Amongst The Ruins as an unusual progression for Primordial, but in truth the band's typically bleak and battering black metal remains largely intact. Rather than the stylistic approach, it is the band's ineluctable presence that has shifted gears, diminishing somewhat from the overwhelming aura Primordial has always projected.

But...
It saddens me somewhat that you think so lowly of the rest of the album, comparatively. For me, To Hell Or The Hangman is not even the best track here, although I find it extremely hard to pick a favourite.


I second that.
Actually, I find it incredible that everbody posting in this thread absolutely hails To hell or the hangman (except for me).
IMO this is a pretty monotonous song, which exhibits the characteristic feature that it is quite "danceable".
I dont claim that this makes the song boring, or even bad in any sense. I find it quite decent. But soooo much praise...?
Can someone please explain to me why the MS crowd so much hails a monotonous song that on top is danceable?
My favourite song here easily is Upon our spiritual deathbed.

Yeah I don't know what's wrong with this people. To Hell Or The Hangman as the best song and overshadowing the rest? Pfffff

If you wanna dance just go get drunk in a disco.

I think what's been lost in translation is how those of us who recognize the catchiest song for what it is still acknowledge that the rest of the album is excellent in its own right, though for different reasons.
