(Podcast/Video) THY PRIMORDIAL - In 40 Minutes
Time for another episode of our In 40 Minutes series where we curate what we think are the best 40 minutes of music from an underrated band's career ... with headbangers and hard rockers in mind (ie. you won't be hearing many ballads or hits!).
Basically, it's what we'd put on a single vinyl release (being limited to 20 minutes per side) if we were asked to put a Best Of record together to convince the uninitiated long haired miscreant that this band is worth checking out.
This episode is dedicated to the greatest melodic black metal band of all time (at least in my opinion!) ... Thy Primordial.
The Swedish mob issued six albums between 1997 and 2004 before calling it a day. Inexplicably ignored by most black metal fans, here we had a band that married viciousness with melodic guitar phrasing, a vocalist who sounded like Daffy Duck being strangled and dive bomb bass that can be equated to an airplane landing on your head. Absolute bliss.
Genuine hatred, indeed!!
