PRIMORDIAL / A Journey's End (1998)

Blending the technical guitar styles of Black Metal with elements of Irish Folk sounds like a ridiculous idea, but Primordial did it and they did it beautifully.  By finding a balance between the two halves they gave a musical voice to Ireland’s Pagan past, cementing it in a romantic lament to a time lost forever, except in song.  Quiet moments break up the more extreme ones, like a lull in a battle.
