Primordial to release ‘Exile Amongst the Ruins’ in March

Posted by on January 18, 2018

It’s been four years since Primordial released 2014’s Where Greater Men Have Fallen, and now, these Irish metallers are ready to unleash their overall ninth studio effort. Exile Amongst the Ruins is scheduled to arrive on March 30th via Metal Blade Records and today (18th), we get to hear a taste of it with the new song “Stolen Years.”

Frontman A.A. Nemtheanga commented:

“‘Stolen Years’ may seem like a strange choice as our lead single, and on the face of if I guess it is. It’s not a blood and thunder epic about tragedy and might and the ruin of nations, nor is it 9 minute epistle of doom. Have no fear, the album does contain those also but to open this time we chose something different. This album has some surprises and this is one of them, a short and painfully simple song which almost didn’t make the final cut if you can believe so. The video, cut by Costin Chioreanu, is about the journey involved in finally getting to that moment where you walk on stage, the song itself about that last night on earth that comes to us all, sometimes we never know when that might be, hold your loved ones tight tonight, this could be it…”
