Irish dark metal masters PRIMORDIAL have posted a new song called "Empire Falls" on their MySpace page. The track comes off the group's sixth album, "To The Nameless Dead", which will be released in Europe on November 19 via Metal Blade Records. According to a press release, the group's second CD for Metal Blade "is a timeless statement and an ode to their forefathers which lives and breathes the ancient spirit mixed with anger, pain and despair. . . 'To The Nameless Dead' is defiantly at odds with a modern metal scene that often seems to place banality, mediocrity and safety above passion, honesty and truth."
Harsher and faster than its predecessor, "To The Nameless Dead" wasn't recorded digitally — just analog to keep the sound old school and powerful.
The album will be available as a limited first edition in a digibook (cover artwork), featuring another design, 40 pages and a bonus DVD of PRIMORDIAL's performance at the Rock Hard Festival.
