And lo, the earthquaked, the skies turned sour, and an avalanche falls upon us this week as we return once more with Grima. Will of the Primordial is the third release from this Siberian duo and I cannot say enough about it. The most notable portion is just how much more weight and power this installment brings forth, vocally and instrumentally. It is a force of nature and I am left in awe at the vast skill Grima possesses. By far one of my favorite wails/screams at times as far as a metal artist goes but just the small visitation I have had with Will of the Primordial I can tell they have earned the praise and given us all a gem from the cold reaches.
This weeks showcase track will be the astounding, all powerful track called The Shrouded in Darkness. However, there is not a single bad or uninspired piece to speak of, the whole damn thing brings down the mountain. The instumental parts are haunting and luring, while the other six tracks thunder and surge with accordian and guitar duoship that few are capable. This is an awesome follow up from last weeks showcase and continues our trend of a blackened, cold summer.
Do yourself a favor, do Grima a solid, and give this a listen. The music video they produced is visually epic and the attire they selected is straight wicked (Gonna have to get me a mask like that). Let us weather this week with grace and power like that that Grima has shown us in their work. Stay frosty, my friends! /,,/
