Primordial Releases Video for New Single, “Exile Among the Ruins”
Irish black metal quintet Primordial have dropped the title track to their upcoming album, Exile Among the Ruins. The song is very minimalist, allowing the haunting vocals to take the limelight. The beautiful, cinematic quality of the accompanying video adds to the chills of the track itself. It tells a tale of war, of a soldier’s final moments in this life.
“This is a simple story. A soldier’s fate that has happened around the world many times and will continue to do so. It is set in Ireland about 100 years ago. Nothing more and nothing less. They are the Ghosts. We are the Ruins.”
This is the third single to be released from the album, after “Stolen Years” and “To Hell or the Hangman.” This album is a milestone of Primordial’s constantly evolving sound, so fans both old and new should give it a listen. Exile Among the Ruins is set to be released March 30. Mark your calendars and don’t forget to pre-order.
