EDITORS’ NOTES

With a rich history of combining black metal and Celtic folk music, Primordial scale triumphant new heights on their ninth album. The Dublin-based quintet set a medieval mood with the pealing bells of tremolo epic “Nail Their Tongues” and the phantasmagoric gallop of “To Hell or the Hangman.” Leather-lunged vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga breathes frost and fire into dramatic arias about shipwrecks (the sweeping “Sunken Lungs”), loss (the forlorn “Stolen Years”), and the demise of civilization (the climactic title track).
