Primordial - To the Nameless Dead (2007)
And here is Primordial's master work; an epic ode to Ireland itself and a reclamation of Irish identity against the destabilizing influence of Western Christianity. There's a whole ton of atmosphere that seems to be influenced by bands such as Neurosis and Bathory as one perceptive interviewer observed. This atmosphere includes hypnotic, driving riffs, pounding drums, and folkish interludes. This is a much hyped album, but the hype is quite right. This is indeed their best album and a black metal masterpiece.
