Primordial - New Album Details

Official press release, token from the Primordial website:

"So we are finally finished the recording of our sixth album. After a few rain sodden weeks locked up in Foel Studios in North Wales "To The Nameless Dead" is for all but mastering and final artwork completed.

This time far away from the chaos and negative influences of a big city the recording process was far smoother and more complete then we have ever known. We left at the end quietly satisfied as opposed to feeling like our nerves were shot and far more stressed then we began. Much of this we owe to Chris Fielding who engineered it and put many long hours into its creation and to Dave Anderson who has created something we can only call a "good vibe" in the middle of nowhere far from the meddling influence of civilisation….immense thanks.

The sound is of course instantly recognisable as Primordial but more powerful then before, heavier and richer with a much more rounded sound then before. Whereas The Gathering Wilderness was a dark often impenetrably bleak work "To The Nameless Dead" has found the fire in its veins to defy, to rebel, to stand up and oppose all. This is a vast and epic album, more pounding and full of rage then Primordial has been for many a winter…

It is defiantly at odds with a modern metal scene that often seems to place banality, mediocrity and safety above passion, honesty and truth. It does not sound like a computer recorded it, it does not sound like a procession of riffs simply poached from metals founding fathers, it is not a mindless exercise in musical masturbation. This is Metal is it was meant to be played. With Passion…

We play music because we have to…this is in our veins. This is our culture, our history, our folklore, our heritage. We make no apologies, we will not compromise. And now with our sixth album "To The Nameless Dead" we are about to make our strongest statement yet…

Acta Non Verba
Ad Asperum Finem
Vae Victis

Can't wait for their new release indeed!
The Gathering Wilderness was really great, so I've got high hopes for the new album!
