Like Neurosis, Primordial have that rare ability to write riffs so physical and elemental they sound like they’re in the process of being ripped from the earth.
Case in point: the track Babel’s Tower, taken from the band’s latest album, Where Greater Men Have Fallen, and now a stunning, cinematic video that Metal Hammer is very proud to offer as a UK-exclusive first showing. At once a deeply personal exorcism and a song plugged deeply into the enflamed, fist-raising heart of heavy metal, Babel’s Tower is an eight-minute epic and the accompanying video, set among their native Irish hills is equally mesmerising. A glacial and beautifully shot rite of burial that isn’t for the squeamish, in particular those with a mortal fear of maggots, this sets a new visual bar, while resonating perfectly with Primordial’s tendon-straining journey of catharsis. Take a deep breath and lose yourself in Babel’s Tower below!
