Primordial - 'Pilgrimage to the World's End' (lyric video)

Sometimes this spine it feels so heavy, O Lord
And this old head has taken upon the weight of the world
We fell so far, stranded upon that rock
An ancient port where no ships will ever dock

No human will ever step ashore
And pull this rope so tight to ever moor

This island we have made a desolate reality
Wingless birds stare in columns out to sea
In deep southern lands there is a churches steeple
Whose bell it tolls loud to the world
The wild and restless people and calls to kneel, to kneel

Toll the bell and curse these lands
Pilgrims live to tell what lives were taken
With their own very hands and sent to hell, to hell

This vast and formless ocean will never release us
And we may drift to the edge of this world
But nothing will ever make us pray in this deep dark world
Will ever make us pray

We pray
Once more we pray

This vast and formless ocean has taken my faith
Soundless waves that have no shore upon which to break
Devoted pilgrims they stand in the embrace of death
And will do so until time will take their breath
Until the end of time will take their breath

Primordial - 'How It Ends'
Full length album νούμερο δέκα στον ορίζοντα για τους Primordial. "How It Ends" ο τίτλος και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του τρέχοντος μήνα. Πρόκειται για το τρίτο (δισκογραφικό) πόνημα των Ιρλανδών metallers μέσα στο 2023 μετά το live album "A Journey's End Volume 2 - Live at the Ritz, Lisbon, Portugal 9.12.1999" και την συλλογή "Spirit the Earth Aflame Volume 2"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Primordial has nothing to prove. Having lasted thirty-two years and now returning with their devastating new studio offering, the Irish band has made it clear they are a primal force who consistently lay it all on the line.

The follow-up to 2018’s critically lauded Exile Amongst The Ruins, How It Ends sees them delivering more of their seminal blend of Celtic and black metal, with an extra added urgency, and staring down the apocalypse.

The title is a question - is this how it ends? How it all goes down: culture, language, history, society - humanity - who knows?”, says vocalist A. A. Nemtheanga.

Regardless of who you are or were, you get one chance at all of this, and it’s asking is this the end of your town, state, nation? Myths, traditions, relationships, and I suppose it asks the question, who reacts, who rebels - how does it end now for them?”

Working alongside founding members Pól MacAmlaigh (bass) and Ciáran MacUilliam (guitar) and longtime drummer Simon O’Laoghaire, the band started writing in earnest in the Fall of 2022, having lit a fire under themselves to work hastily and productively.

Primordial never plans out a record beforehand, letting them come together naturally, though Nemtheanga knew he wanted something with a bigger, more open sound, and something more aggressive, which is exactly what they achieved.

“How It Ends" is a very angry, defiant, visceral, and rebellious album, and as we worked it all began to take more shape and form itself. It may be the note we go out on but it will be a note of resistance, in musical terms. I think it’s also more metal! And more epic!

Το έδαφος προετοιμάζει το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Pilgrimage to the World's End", με τον A.A. Nemtheanga (δηλαδή τον Alan Averill) να μας λέει σχετικά:

«Pilgrimage to the world's end' started out being inspired by the travails of Irish people sent as convicts to Australia, but of course I folded that into a post 'Coffin Ships' narrative, poor people boarding boats to try and reach a new world to start over anew, how many went down the boats, endured sickness, death, never reached their destination.

Then I began to really consider the plight of all people within that 19th century period who by famine, war, poverty tried to seek a new life.

The oppressed and the downtrodden, so as Primordial always has a historical echo that should resonate with the modern day, we see the same thing, poor people clinging to boats trying to seek a new life, always at the behest of a small economic elite who profit from their ruin, this is the song of the war and famine torn refugee from all countries and nations...»
