You will get stabbed in the chest and you will like it.

If you follow Rivers of Nihil on facebook, you may have noticed that they plugged a seemingly unknown band called Primordium. This was a new name to me so I had to check it out. I know what you’re thinking. “But Jack, you’re an endless fount of tech death knowledge!” I know. I’m surprised I didn’t know about them earlier too.

Still, I’m beyond stoked I found them.  These guys are upper-tier, perhaps on the level of Spawn of Possession, Obscura, or Archspire.  The drumming is just perfection, the guitars snake in and out of the the vocals and beats. It’s amazing. One of the most impressive aspects of this song is the production. You can hear every instrument in this tune clearly, something man in metal struggle to do.  Also, I fucking love that riff.  Dat album art!

 

Their debut album Aeonian Obsolescence comes out on September 19th on Lacerated Enemy Records.  Don’t forget to follow them on bandcamp and facebook if you dig it.

          • JWG

            As lores go, it’s certainly a profound one.

          • Stockhausen

            Complimentary, and a clever reference. I would like to high five you.

        • JWG

          It’s sort of a weird badge of honour to have one’s entire account declared spam. More-so when you’re not even trying…

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          who got banned off MS ?

          • lolbuttz, and I guess others were being flagged for promoting the toilet? even today one of my comments was “awaiting moderation”… a first since ever.

            you should make a fake FB account like me and join the Reason Honor & Respect Crew

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            They view the Toilet as real threat then, that’s pretty cool. It’s like Vader underestimating the rebel fleet. And here is the TOH priming to destroy the MS death star. I think Vince is the Emperor & axl is the subservient Vader.

  • I will admit it. I am jamming on this one.

    • Stockhausen

      hows ur chest bro?

      • probably sore from all the swole

        • Det. Flushin Bohl

          Swole Jammiez can do that to a bro.

  • Jack Bauer, next time you say “Archspire” I’m sentencing you to a peasant’s death.

        • The new fallujah album is great, but I liked harvest wombs better. Also, Archspire.

    • Stockhausen

      lolbuttzpire

    • Archspire Archspire Archspire Archspire. Come at me bro. 😉

      • Actually, if the rest of Primordium’s album is like this, it will knock Archspire off that pedestal I have it on.

        • Scrimm

          Another gem! I saw the signing announcement on Lacerated Enemy’s page but never checked it out. I can definitely hear the S.O.P. in this.

    • “Very decent” ?
      Quit holding back, babe. Let your love for tech death and Archspire flow out of you like Taco Bell diarrhea.

    • JWG

      I dig Archspire immensely. But sticking them on the same tier as Spawn of Possession, who are just inhumanly exceptional, seems odd.

      That said, I support anything that is favourably compared to Archspire.

      PS: Archspire.

  • DeadButtDreaming

    This is alright, I guess.

    • Hahahahahaha your name rules.

      • Stockhausen

        It’s like when a 7th grader says something that really shouldn’t be amusing in the least bit, but cuts right to the core of your brain and you laugh far more than you should.

        • Exactly.

          • W.

            It’s one of those stupid things you laugh about to yourself when you’re walking in a public place and draw weird looks for,

          • Stockhausen

            I had a high school student speak up in a rehearsal once, asking if we could change on of our procedures for starting a segment of music. His words were, “I think it would make gobs more sense.” It really didn’t so I had to shut him down, but I had to fight back laughter at that ridiculous word choice.

    • What do dead butts dream about?

  • Xan

    There are no flaws with this song. The album artwork makes my eyes very happy.

    • Randall Thor

      I’m always wary about tech-death. This band hasn’t won me over yet, but this song is certainly enjoyable! Thanks Jack!

  • Randall Thor

    Do I have to be naked like the guy on the picture to listen to this song? I don’t think the office would appreciate that.

    • W.

      It isn’t required, but it does enhance the mood.

      • Stockhausen

        Ooh, it really does.

    • Beunhaas

      Being naked is not really necessary. Being stabbed through the chest is.

    • Gorgasm

      If i’m headbanging, you’d better believe i’m doing it naked.

      Our pagan ancestors wouldn’t have it any other way.

      • Randall Thor

        Our pagan ancestors? You dare taint the name of Manetheren?

        • Gorgasm

          I blurted “pagan” in ignorance. i just wanted to emphasize the fact that i’m naked in my office, listening to the posted track.

          • Randall Thor

            Maybe if it was Friday I would try it

          • Gorgasm

            But it’s Monday. let your stress and genitalia unwind with some good ol’ naked fuck-shit-up.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    The album art looks like it features Yivo from the Futurama “Beast with a Billion Backs” mini-series. Also this song kills.

  • Cock of Steele

    I’ll take dis

  • Stockhausen

    My chest is feeling quite stabbed. I’ll keep my eyes and internal organs on these guys.

  • Gorgasm

    You are correct. The guitar and drum work are exceptional.

  • Kevin Nash and Friends

    So, I talked to one of my friends on another site called Retro Thing and they picked up some things from Roland’s AIRA line at Guitar Center and said they didn’t like it and they used it once. They couldn’t return it because of one of the items being non returnable and they didn’t want to sell it so he could get pennies on the dollar for it, so they’re sending it to me! Anyone read any reviews of Roland’s AIRA line so I can see what to expect?

  • Link D. LeonhⒶrt V.

    thanks for sharing.. i will check this band 🙂 liked the groovy guitar riffs

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    Actually, I don’t follow RoN because: Vince.

    But giving this band a pass because I trust my fellow flushers judgement on what I should be listening to. And this does not disappoint.

    • I’m sitting here like “what the fuck is Ron?” oy

      • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

        surprised the name made it past the EIC.

      • I’m lost.

        • W.

          Rivers of Nihil is managed by Vince Neilstein.

          • RoN=Rivers of Nihil and now I understand. For the most part I don’t recognize acronyms for bands unless said band was already being talked about.

          • JWG

            Acronyms are tough. And not just band names. I posted about W:O:A on facebook recently and got no comment until I edited it to “Wacken”.

            Frankly, that surprised me, it’s not like I left out the colons (“WOA” looks more like I’d be quoting Keanu).

          • Negrodamus

            That explains a lot, actually.

          • the lowest score we can now give Vince Neilstein is 1/5 flushes.
            ~VinceFacts~

          • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

            What? 1/5 is not many flushes at all. He’s at least 4/5 flushes, +1 for being behind embed disable

          • I done goofed. I thank you for fixing it!

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    Dem sexy drums!

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      I’m really torn on “drumming” like this. Is it real? or is it triggers? I think that triggers depreciate the authenticity of some bands. I mean, can anyone really double bass that fast?

      • Have you ever seen Adam Jarvis live?

      • Further Down the Metal Hole

        What matters is that it’s awesome, but you’re right about it seeming unnatural. I definitely can live with it, either way.

      • Spear

        It’s potentially both. My band does a mix of actual kick and trigger (around 50/50 on faster songs and 80/20 on slower ones) to give the drums a little more oomph. The snare here is definitely triggered, and the kicks sound at least partially triggered too. Once you hit a certain speed threshold, you basically have to trigger the kick so it doesn’t sound muddy.

  • Gorgasm

    HOLY FUCKIN SHIT!!!!
    NEW YOB SONG!!!!!
    JUST POSTED!!!!!!
    Hurry up and write something before the site who shall not be named does.

    http://www.stereogum.com/1697670/yob-unmask-the-spectre-stereogum-premiere/mp3s/

    • the unnamed site will probably post a few hours after TovH does anyways.

      • Gorgasm

        As long as the time stamps proves ToH did it first. Lmao!

      • How long you think till they post about primordium?

        • W.

          I don’t think they cover much tech death, do they?

          • only when surrounded by some kind of controversy. but no, never just to expose us to some good music.

          • I never understood that. I love hooking people on new music. Makes me happy.

          • and some users over there are calling this site “a joke” and talking shit on the people who migrated over here.

          • They are just jealous they didn’t think of it first.

          • that’s gotta be it.
            if i really wanted to, i would say “your argument is in valid… we got King Shit of Fuck Mountain in the Toilet”

          • and then proceed to call them cunting lifelovers.

          • Yea it doesn’t have enough J pop synths or 1010101010 riffs.

          • JWG

            I gave The Blog Which Shall Not Be Named plenty of opportunities to rip me off completely and get a bunch of tech death recording news up in there, if only they bothered to read my comments through the last half of 2013 and first month or so of 2014.

            Admittedly most of my newsbits were *just* about Archspire …And what wasn’t concerning Archspire was about Nylithia (they are to thrash what tech-death is to death metal).

            PS: yes, I am deliberately trying to give Jack competition for frequency of Archspire mentions.

          • W.

            Ooh, I dig Nylithia.

          • JWG

            Then you may know that they just announced that they’re about halfway through on guitar tracking for their long-awaited “Hyperthrash” album (assuming 10 songs, they said ‘5 to go’) after having completed drum tracking a few months ago (then going out on tour for a while), which was in turn a few months after tracking vocals (then going out on tour for a while). Technically they started the whole process in August of last year (then going out on tour for a while).

            I’ve been willing to wait because I know (a) it will be awesome and (b) the reason for the long breaks is constant touring as noted, so I’ve seen them a bunch recently. New tunes included.

            They had an interesting strategy going for a while of releasing a song at a time in demo form via bandcamp, which is the last thing The Blog Which Shall Not Be Named has written about them. But I think I like the live-debut method better.

          • W.

            I did not know that, but I’m stoked now.

          • Holy shit I had never heard of Nylithia! This is good shit man! Also, Archspire.

          • JWG

            Random note: I first heard Nylithia at a Vancouver local-indie-metal-band showcase in 2010 or ’11.

            Also on the bill: Anciients. And Archspire.

          • I just bought everything on their bandcamp.

          • W.

            I first discovered Nylithia because of their Super Mario metal song.

  • Xan

    Seems that this article caught their eye:

    • why is everyone’s facebook red and black?

      • Xan

        I put a skin on it because white gives me eye strain.

    • SWEET!

    • W.

      Joe shared it with them.

      • God

        regardless of that, I love that this blog is getting some exposure.

    • Stockhausen

      Nice work Joe/Jack!

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Cromulence index +1

  • RuIN?

    So, the open minded part of me thinks that this is some cool stuff. The other cranky old man side thinks that everyone in the band needs to get on the same page and stop competing for the limited amount of space inside the song. Sounds like they are all trying to play something different and jockeying for air time. Acquired taste is guess.

  • BoogerFlicker

    And the hits keep coming! There’s so much to go through and give a thorough listen. Information overload!
