Ireland’s PRIMORDIAL have signed a recording contract with Metal Blade Records, their fourth label in as many albums. The official statement comments on their decision to go with Metal Blade:
“Some may find PRIMORDIAL and Metal Blade a strange combination as we have musically relatively little in common with many of the bands on the roster but that’s what makes it such an interesting and challenging combination on so many levels. We had other offers and interest from various labels and it was clear to us we had to step things up with a bigger label. When we looked at things in the cold light the Metal Blade offer was by the far the best and it became clear to us that we were dealing with a genuine label run by Metal fans for Metal fans with a vast Metal legacy over three decades and not with one eye always on the profit margin.”
PRIMORDIAL plan to record their Metal Blade debut this summer/fall with producer Billy Anderson (CATHEDRAL, EYEHATEGOD, SICK OF IT ALL, MR. BUNGLE) for an end-of-the-year release.
