PRIMORDIAL: Alan Averill gives Track-By-Track Breakdown of new album… Posted: 19/12/2014 by Trevor McCormack
OK! So Revolver Magazine actually did this piece and it’s not done here on the Irish Metal Archive at all. But it’s still an interesting read and a good incite into the meanings behind the tracks on “Where Greater Men Have Fallen”.
Follow the links to read the full track-by-track breakdown…
“Where Greater Men Have Fallen” is the long-anticipated new studio album from Ireland’s most revered metal craftsman, PRIMORDIAL. Released via Metal Blade Records last month, the record debuted at #24 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart, #43 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart, #104 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart, and offers some of the band’s deepest, most conceptually profound and wildly epic compositions to date, continues to floor fans and critics worldwide.
In commemoration of its release Revolver Magazine brings fans a thorough track-by-track breakdown of the offering as told by vocalist Alan Averill.
Tracked at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma),PRIMORDIAL‘s “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” is an eight-track, fifty-eight minute masterwork Stereogum dubs “almost Maiden-esque in its majesty” driven by the compelling vocal urgency of Averill, who Pitchfork crowns, “one of the most captivating bandleaders in metal.”
PRIMORDIAL will bring their sonic savagery to stages throughout Europe in the coming weeks with additional live ceremonials to be announced soon.
