TO THE NAMELESS DEAD IT IS………
THE SIXTH CRUSADE BEGINS ON NOVEMBER 24TH
So the album bar the mastering is done and
dusted. We have to extend our utmost gratitude to Chris Fielding
who performed above and beyond the call of duty with the least
amount of fuss any of us have ever encountered in the studio.
And I think when the scene hears the rich, powerful, full and
old school sound from the album he is going to become much in
demand. And why not…secondly also gratitude to Dave who made us
feel more then welcome in the valleys and I think added some
small part of spiritual presence to proceedings o) We will be
So yes you read it the album contains 7 new
tracks and near 55 minutes of new Primordial and yes we know all
bands say this but I can honestly say we have never been happier
with how an album sounds. It is as I stated rich and powerful,
it has a real fucking drum sound and you can smell the amps
burning into overdrive. And as a singer I can say Chris pushed
me further then I’ve been before with the vocals and stark sound
from the last album has been replaced with something far more
immediate and effective. And the songs ?…to our ears at least
this album sounds more focused, there is less flab on the songs.
They are more direct in their intentions and there is a defiant
vibe to the album that I for one did not expect but there it is
in all its shameless glory. Fans of the band won’t be
disappointed that is for sure. The mainstream might take notice
or they might not. Who gives a fuck ?. We certainly don’t. Album
number 6 and no compromise…not then, not now, not ever.
Our show at Party San Open Air was a solid
7 outta 10 but I think having been up all night the night
previous to be at Dublin airport at 5 am really robbed us of a
lot of our punch. Not to mention being picked up at 5 am the
following morning to wait 14 hours in the airport. Sometimes in
my most zombified moments I wonder is it all worth it, but then
again I also think I’ve seen demons when I’ve had 4 hours sleep
in 3 days. Tells its own story really. Anyway zombies and demons
be damned we will be back. We are confirmed for the Arnhem Metal
Meeting in the Netherlands and also the Winterfest in Cork.
First time in Arnhem in 3 years I think and Cork in 5 or 6….
So the day draws nearer. The artwork is
being finalized and the branding irons are in the Fire…..
Keep the Faith.
