Watch! Primordial reveal Babel’s Tower

Primordial Babels Tower Crop

Irish metal marauders Primordial have released an epic cinematic video for their new track “Babel’s Tower.”

The song is lifted from the band’s new album, Where Greater Men Have Fallen, released today via Metal Blade Records.

Originally premiered in the UK via Metal Hammer’s website, the erstwhile metal magazine said of the video:

“At once a deeply personal exorcism and a song plugged deeply into the enflamed, fist-raising heart of heavy metal, Babel’s Tower is an eight-minute epic and the accompanying video, set among their native Irish hills is equally mesmerising.”

Check it out below:

Primordial will headline their own Redemption Festival in Dublin on the 28th and 29th of November, and will play three dates in the UK next year with Malthusian:

Feb 5th: Glasgow Audio
Feb 6th: Manchester Sound Control
Feb 7th: London Islington Academy

Cannibal Corpse to release new album “A Skeletal Domain”

Cannibal Corpse

American death metal legends Cannibal Corpse are to release a new album.

Titled A Skeletal Domain, the band’s thirteenth studio album will be released on the 15th of September via Metal Blade records.

This time around, the band opted to work with Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) in the producer’s chair at Audio Hammer Studios. But even though the producer and venue have changed, preparation for the album didn’t vary a great deal from previous releases.

Says bassist Alex Webster: “At the end of the day, we’re still making a death metal record, no matter where it’s being recorded. Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That’s what makes this exciting.”

“Anyone who really listens to this album with an open mind will hear that it’s not same-old same-old,” he added.

Listen to new song “Sadistic Embodiment” below:

The full tracklisting for A Skeletal Domain is as follows:

“High Velocity Impact Spatter”
“Sadistic Embodiment”
“Kill Or Become”
“A Skeletal Domain”
“Headlong Into Carnage”
“The Murderer’s Pact”
“Funeral Cremation”
“Icepick Lobotomy”
“Vector Of Cruelty”
“Bloodstained Cement”
“Asphyxiate To Resuscitate”
“Hollowed Bodies”

Meanwhile, this September the band will unleash their first-ever official authorised biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age, Bible Of Butchery – Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection.
