Number 2! This one was pretty divisive it seems. One reviewer commented that it sounded like a band worn out and exhausted. I don’t disagree, but I think the weariness and bitterness works here. The songs are less epic, maybe even a bit myopic, but they’re beautifully realized and full of emotion. I guess I don’t see it as the big departure so many did; it still feels very Primordial to me. Or maybe I’m just worn out and bitter, too. #metal #music #primordial #exileamongsttheruins
