To the bitter end!”

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!
