From The Forthcoming New Album Exile Amongst The Ruins

Irish Pagan Metal Gods PRIMORDIAL will release their new album, Exile Amongst The Ruins, March 30th through Metal Blade Records. Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on PRIMORDIAL's 2016 live album, Gods To The Godless, the record was tracked at Dublin's Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

PRIMORDIAL has now released the 2nd single from the album. Watch the video for "To Hell Or The Hangman" (directed by Costin Chioreanu) on KNAC.COM right HERE.

Comments PRIMORDIAL singer A.A. Nemtheanga: "In 1493 Walter Lynch was hanged by his own father James Lynch, Mayor of Galwayon on the West coast of Ireland for the murder of a young Spanish noblemen who was visiting the family home. He had fallen in love with a young woman by the name of Agnes in the Lynch household and in a fit of jealous rage one night Walter took the young Spaniard's life. The story goes that an angry 'lynch mob' took to the streets and barred the way to the usual execution spot so James took his son Walter and hung him with his bare hands from the open window into the street...He was lynched from the hanging sill. "To Hell Or The Hangman" is this story through Walter's eyes, a tale of unrequited love with a murderous end. Enough drama for you? A curious and strange song for single number two from the new album, dark romanticism! So get on the dance floor..."

For another preview of Exile Amongst The Ruins, the first single "Stolen Years" can be streamed at: metalblade.com/primordial - where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

  • ltd. 1st ed. Digibook-CD with bonus-CD

  • tan clear vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014's Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, "old school sounding" record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as "a direct energy" and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

  • "Nail Their Tongues"
  • "To Hell Or The Hangman"
