Get them all, you will not be disappointed. Journey's End is the best, but TGW is a close second.

Its good. Fuil Arsa is one of my favourites, its the opening track and is in our native tongue.

It was the second one I got. Great album, so dark and heavy (in a way). I found the cd (no box) in a clear envelope thing in a friends house and he said I could have it. It's scratched a lot, and the last 4 songs won't play at all, so I downloaded it anyway to hear the full thing.

Sounds "weird", yea his pronounciation is strange, but just because it dosent sound all chhhh and Celtic dosent mean its not good Irish. Like look at all the various accents in English. Alan just wanted to make Irish sound dark and strange for that song, and it worked well. Especially in the screaming parts!

Yeah sorry, posted here before I saw the comment!

Does anybody else get the strange feeling when listening to Primordial that it sounds like Alan is about to break down crying or something? Its not a criticism, just sometimes his voice wavers during songs.

He does that on 'The Coffin Ships', and imo, I think it just adds that much more to an already overwhelmingly emotional song.

He might just be pushing himself too much aswell.

Oh yeah I wasnt saying he means to start crying, it just sounds like it haha.. Id say he is just straining his voice, hes said before he doesnt exactly care for vocal training. His black metal screams are excellent as well though.

Im such a spud for not going to see them live at Winterfest, what was I thinking!? I remember complaining about €30 being too much for tickets or something. Theyll do a tour of Ireland again though.

Ah yes he was telling me about that! There seems to be a big aul scene up in Ennis. I have to get up there for a gig some time.

I saw Fomorians bebo page. Excellent name! Will there be any Irish influence in the music or just the theme? Did ye put a song up a while back? Im pretty sure I heard it.

'Beneath A Bronze Sky', some song man. Its clearly Irish, but still so dark and unique.

^ Ah its just the influence in the name, theres no real folk sound in the music, but Ive always wanted to write a song about the Fomorian race, I will soon enough I reckon. And yeah we have a rough track up, you should give it an auld listen, but were finished mixing and whatnot next week.. hopefully. Then I have a few more songs half-written that have to be finished, probably in the summer.

^ Indeed, it's a classic.

I feel like such a fool. About a month ago I got my hands on a copy of TTND, I listened to it in the full, but it just didn't click. I was disappointed, because there was a lot of hype surrounding it, and I really enjoyed The Gathering Wilderness. Well, I decided to give it another spin today and I'm in love with it. Strange how these things work, huh?

#68
I must admit "The gathering wilderness" was a let down for me. I have TTND and love it, and I don't think TGW is nearly as good, but perhaps I just need to listen to it more. Of course The coffin ships is an awesome song, but practically all the songs off of TTND are awesome.
#69
^ Both The Gathering Wilderness and TTND had to grow on me. Although chances are you like it now, if that's not the case, give it another spin.

So, I now have Spirit The Earth Aflame, in addition to TTND and TGW, and all three are incredible. Out of curiosity, has there been any significant changed in their sound throughout their career?
#70
Storm Before Calm had a lot less clean singing.. and thats about it! The albums have got less aggressive as they go on, and more.. epic I suppose. Think of it as a Bathory-style progression kind of.

And technicolour, TGW will grow on you, definitely!

So, comparing, say, Imrama to TTND, Imrama would be more along the lines of straight folk/black metal?
#72
I dont have Imrama, but I hear its a lot more BM-based, which is great, I love Primordial's more aggressive songs, I prefer them to the slower ones at times.

But yes, you have the general idea.

Also, the production used to be BM quality, but it's a lot better now (and I prefer good production with folk/black).

TTND is one of the most epic albums. Ever. Although it's hard for Primordial to make something that *isn't* epic. You should check out The Gathering Wilderness next.
