Did you ever wonder how to make music that is epic and powerful without use of any keyboards, orchestra or samples? Well, if you do not know the answer, you should probably ask Primordial. They certainly managed to achieve that.

Primordial never released an album that would be rated less than amazing, and they still follow this trend with their latest called To The Nameless Dead. As I already mentioned, the first thing that came to my mind when I listened to this album was: "This is what I call "epic" metal!" Album has an amazing beginning with song Empire Falls (which is in my opinion one of the best Primordial have ever done) and all the others that follow are also great of course. Here we have again an outstanding vocal performance from Nemtheanga which sings with such passion that only few vocalists really could. His vocal work is always brilliant, no matter if he sings clean parts or he does harsh vocals. Other members are extremely "well-trained" too, especially the drummer which brings even greater epic feel to the album with his very varied and precise drumming. Album is produced and written as it should be, songs are not only very well composed but also have great lyrics which are written of course by Nemtheanga. Most of them begins with slow intros and then slowly evolve into great, timeless, epic masterpieces.

There are probably a lot of albums I like in the top 200 actually.

Yeah you will probably enjoy lots of stuff there. I listened to much of that stuff when it came and its not that interesting for me to revisit them, Zeppelin and Sabbath will always be great though.

Easy to remember. The 24/11 is my birthday.
Fun fact: My copy of this album is gathering quite some dust. I haven't heard the album in its entirety because I keep looking for the right moment. Plus... I got many other albums I bought which remain unplayed, so it's in a queue.
