After 3 sold out release shows last weekend, Irish Metallers PRIMORDIAL have just released their first professionally filmed and edited video clip in the history of the band. The clip is for the song “Babel’s Tower” and will be launched exclusively through the website of our friends at Metal Hammer!
Please surf over HERE at Metal Hammer to check out “Babel’s Tower“!
Comments the band: “It was really about time right? This far down the road that we made our first video eight albums in. So we trusted Gareth Averill and crew who also made our DVD a couple of years back. The traditional band jamming in a warehouse scenario was not something that entered our heads, we wanted something broad and cinematic, something visually striking and arresting. So we spent a couple of cold and windswept days standing on the side of a mountain in Ireland. Here you have it, and about time…”
PRIMORDIAL have made quite an impact at the German press with their latest offering “Where Greater Men Have Fallen“! The album has won the soundchecks in all four major metal magazines, namely METAL HAMMER, ROCK HARD, DEAF FOREVER and LEGACY! This is the first time ever this is happening, congrats to PRIMORDIAL!
Here’s some quotes from the mentioned magazines:
“When the the guitarists of these Irishmen play their profoundly melancholic, yet gladly non-clichéd Celtic riffs while singer Alan Averill’s voice is dripping with pathos, it’s goosebumps galore. And since WHERE GREATER MEN HAVE FALLEN is once more an album that works out well, the result cannot be less than six points!” (Robert Müller, Metal Hammer magazine Germany)
“Sublime and tasteful: PRIMORDIAL celebrate on ‘Where Greater Men Have Fallen’ dark, sinister hymns to die for!” (Boris Kaiser, Rock Hard magazine Germany)
“brutally heavy, yet dramatic and sophisticated – the album of the year!” (Götz Kühnemund, Deaf Forever magazine Germany)
“an album hard to beat in authenticity, emotionality, in heaviness and atmosphere!” (Diana Glöckner, Legacy magazine Germany)
Listen to “Come The Flood” at THIS LOCATION!

An eight track, fifty-eight minute magnum opus, “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” was recorded at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma) and delivers some of the band’s deepest, most methodically arranged, thematically profound and plainly gripping compositions of their winding catalog of sonic enormity.
