Primordial - More Album Details


Official Metal Blade press release:

Primordial are one of those bands that are strong enough to go through hard times and live to tell about it. After years of instability in concern of labels, confirmed and then cancelled tours and even band members Primordial are finally able to concentrate on what really matters. The second album for Metal Blade Records "To The Nameless Dead" (the sixth effort in total) is a timeless statement and an ode to their forefathers which lives and breathes the ancient spirit mixed with anger, pain and despair.

"'To The Nameless Dead' is defiantly at odds with a modern metal scene that often seems to place banality, mediocrity and safety above passion, honesty and truth." - A. A. Nemtheanga

Harsher and faster than its predecessor, "To The Nameless Dead" wasn't recorded digitally - just analog to keep the sound old school and powerful.

The album will also be available as limited first edition in a digibook featuring an alternative design, 40 pages and a bonus DVD of Primordial's performance at the Rock Hard Festival!

Tracklist:

01. Empire Falls
02. Gallows Hymn
03. As Rome Burns
04. Failures Burden
05. Heathen Tribes
06. The Rising Tide
07. Traitors Gate
08. No Nation On This Earth

"To The Nameless Dead" will be unleashed on November 16th (D|A|CH|I) / November 19th (Europe) via Metal Blade Records.

Yeah I'm certainly looking forward to this. Primordial's last album hasn't let me down once since I first heard it. They've got a unique style of emotional delivery, and of course a great mix. Recording in analog is a nice touch, as I think it fits their style well (and I wish more bands would consider it).

I mentioned this in the comments, but as Blabbermouth is hardly the most reliable source, I feel I should point out the following;

-As it stands, the release date is 24/11/08, not the 19th
-The artwork has been changed slightly for the release, and the digibook (obviously) comes with expanded art (and the aforementioned 40-page booklet)
-The 'DVD' from Rock Hard festival is actually a CD (as far as I know). For those of you who frequent their MySpace, the live version of The Coffin Ships will be on it.

In other words.

Fuck. Yes.

It's probably something to do with the story that, when Rome was burning in the 1st Century A.D., Nero played the fiddle while watching the conflagration. He later used the fires to scapegoat the Christians living in Rome, and had many of them slaughtered. More or less, he did nothing 'As Rome [burned]'

It probably has some anti-establishment message in the lyrics, or something to do with the abuse of power. It'll be interesting to see what they do, though, as Primordial's lyrics are always very interesting.
