Metal Blade Records press release

Metal Blade and Primordial have decided to upgrade the upcoming re-issue of "Imrama" [Primordial's debut album] a bit, so now there won't be a bonus CD, but a bonus DVD included. The DVD comes from the fathomless pits of singer A.A. Nemtheanga's cave and is pure gold for any Primordial lunatic since it includes a live recording from 1994 in Cork City, Ireland. The DVD also features an audio commentary by A.A. Nemtheanga talking about the early days of the band and the gig in particular.

Recorded in late 1994, "Imrama" was originally released by Cacophonous Records in the autumn of 1995, already displaying Primordial's sense for overwhelming melodies, epic drama and total commitment, wrapped in a raw sound with a much stronger black metal influence than the band shows nowadays. The re-issue comes as a CD/DVD package including the remastered album plus unreleased demos and live recordings, packaged in a precious black linen slipcase with glossy golden hot foil print, containing a six-page Digipak with the original artwork, the two discs and a 16-page booklet with new liner notes and additional photos. Mandatory for any self-respecting heathen!

Got the original release on 2000 and i really liked it lots. I can't say it is their best effort but since then i became a Primordial fan, plus i find "Beneath A Bronze Sky" as a awesome song. Very good album, great band.

I love Primordial. It is possible that I could get this album, but not immediately.

One of the few good albums Primordial made.
