Now this is more like it. Primal start off with a bestial blaze of riffs, and they never really stop. This is a big-sounding disc that still has a very raw edge to it. The guitars are booming and deep and the sound has enough bottom end to really hit you like a brick. The real plus here is the songwriting, which is direct and vicious, while still having enough melody and variation to be actually memorable. In places there is an almost proggy feel to the riffs and time signatures, yet this is not prog at all. The compositions just have a lot of depth to them, and you never get halfway through a song and know you have heard everything it is going to do. A powerful and malignant debut.
