London based melodic metal band Primitai are here with a new album entitled The Calling, and boy is it a good album.
Starting off with the slow creep of Possess Me it is clear that the band are going to be exploring some angles that have previously not been touched before, and that that is going to make things all the more interesting. Demons Inside is big, bold, harsh and sharp, and is sure to be a favourite of audiences when played live. Overdrive is a riff master’s dream, big on the crunching riffs and the shredding guitars the vocals also paint a fascinating picture. Curse of Olympus is a dance and a half, with some swing in there, and a melodic guitar duelling composition that moves into outright metal with the chugging riffs.
No Survivors is big and bold, the riffs are headbang worthy, the vocals are sharp and precise and the overall instrumentation of the song is fantastic. Memories Lost is slightly slower, cleaner, darker and overall an epic song that would go down well when performed live. The Calling is fast, bluesy metal, with a hint of that classic London edge.
Into the Light is symphonic destruction, the guitars, the vocals all of it combines to make one hell of a song to shape it all. Into the Dark is atmospheric and dangerous, a song that is sure to go over as a hit when performed live. Tempest Returns is full of energy, swagger and groove, a brilliant closer.
The album is out on 25th May via Dissonance Productions.
