Irish Pagan Metal Gods PRIMORDIAL have just released their new album 'Exile Amongst The Ruins' through Metal Blade Records.



The album has entered a whole lot of charts globally including a Top 10 entry in Germany. The band is happy about the positive reception from the fans!

Comments PRIMORDIAL: "They say it's the small things, well with a wry smile, a raised eyebrow of curiosity, a glint of minor satisfaction and an expression of general bemusement we raise a glass to all of you who went out there and bought the album in the first week and for supporting real independent music and to Metal blade for all the hard work! To the bitter end!"

'Exile Amongst The Ruins' chart numbers:
Germany album charts: # 9
Austria album charts: # 26
Switzerland album charts: # 27
Finland physical album charts: # 6
Sweden physical album charts: # 21
Sweden metal charts: #5
United Kingdom official rock & metal album charts: # 18

Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014's 'Where Greater Men Have Fallen' is a more raw, "old school sounding" record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as "a direct energy" and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that 'Exile Amongst The Ruins' is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

PRIMORDIAL's 'Heathen Crusade' European tour with Finnish MOONSORROW as co-headliners and German DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT as support act will kick off tomorrow!
