Primordial is an Irish band founded in the late 1980's. They play a unique style of heavy metal, which can best be described as a blend of black and folk metal with strong influences from their Irish roots. Their music and lyrics deal with cultural heritage, struggle, melancholy and anger.

Primordial started out as a black metal band with some folk influences with their 1993 demo Dark Romanticism and 1995 debut album Imrama. With the 1998 album A Journey's End, Primordial underwent a strong stylistic change and delivered an album that was more original, personal and dark than anything they had done before. The different musical influences become more intertwined than ever before.

The trademark Primordial style become most apparent on The Burning Season (1999 10") and Spirit the Earth Aflame, their third full length album. This line was continued in the somewhat harsher album Storm Before Calm from 2002.

The fifth album, The Gathering Wilderness was released in January 2005 and was highly regarded by critics around the globe. This album shows further musical progression and a return in pessimistic feeling to A Journey's End.

The band recently finished recordings on its sixth full length album, To the Nameless Dead, which is scheduled for release at the end of November 2007.

So far, Primordial has never gotten the attention of the larger metal public, but they regularly play live in places around Europe, headed by charismatic singer and frontman Alan Averill Nemtheanga.
