PRIMORDIAL releases video for new single ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins’!


New album ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins’ out March 30th!

Irish Pagan Metal Gods PRIMORDIAL will release their new album ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins‘ March 30th through Metal Blade Records.

Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on PRIMORDIAL‘s 2016 live album ‘Gods To The Godless‘, the record was tracked at Dublin’s Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

PRIMORDIAL have now released the 3rd single out of the album. Please click to watch the video for the title track, ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins’, directed by Costin Chioreanu.


“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.”

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.
