Primordium are a band from Indiana that plays a very technical and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Aeonic Obselescene" which was released by Lacerated Enemy Records.
A very dark sounding violin and orchestra starts off the ep before getting more heavier and going for a brutal death metal direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing and after the intro all the symphonic elements go away.
After the intro the music starts to get more fast and also brings in growls and blast beats while also being very technical at the same time and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill and you can also hear some high pitched screams being added into certain sections of the recording and when clean playing is utilized they bring in an influence from jazz music onto the album and one of the later tracks also show the symphonic elements of the intro making a return briefly and they close the ep with an instrumental.
Primordium plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and technical as well as demonstrating a great amount of talent and skill as musicians, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark and esoteric themes.
In my opinion Primordium are a very great sounding brutal and technical death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Process Of Becoming" and "Esoteric Purification". 8 out of 10.
