Vocalist Nemtheanga of the Irish dark metal masters PRIMORDIAL has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"Fuck, autumn didn't seem to last long, did it? We only seem to have two seasons these days — winter for nine months and summer for three. That's global warming for you. Doesn't matter my house will be underwater in about 50 years anyway. Never liked this area anyway....
"Firstly, the songwriting for the new album has been coming along, slowly as usual but gradually happening nonetheless. To my ears at least it sounds more up tempo than 'The Gathering Wilderness'. There is one song which is mainly blastbeats and some more mid-up tempo anthemic sounding tracks. The projection for going into the studio is April/May 2007 but time is most definitely not constant in PRIMORDIAL land so that's completely open to change. As much of a pain for Metal Blade [record label] as that will be.
"I had planned on doing backing vocals on the new ROTTING CHRIST album and also was asked and duly contributed a lyric for Sakis. Sadly neither happened. The vocals because of studio money/time constraints and the lyrics because Sakis hadn't a track for them! Next time. However, the idea has been hatched to do a PRIMORDIAL/ROTTING CHRIST split 10" or something like that. So we shall see what happens there. Anyone who knows me knows my love of ROTTING CHRIST and the fact 'Triarchy of the Lost Lovers' is one of my top 5 metal albums ever made... Yep, read that again!!!! So I hope we can sort it out.
"There are plans to do some backing vocals for another rather famous band of panzer commanders later this year but we shall have to wait and see.
"I can also say I will be doing all vocals for a new project with members of a band who you won't believe. Total kult. It's going to warp a few perceptions and crush all, I can assure you. I can't reveal the name or the band yet but I will be able to very soon.
"Fuck, I nearly forgot — we have a mini tour of Finland confirmed for February 2007 with INSOMNIUM and HELLBOX. We will be stuck in the middle. Same set length as INSOMNIUM etc. the last time we played in Finland was at Nummirock and we had a complete blast so hopefully this will be mighty indeed. There are a few other shows confirmed. The 'Metal Boat' trip with DESASTER in April near Koblenz and a festival in northern Greece with THE HAUNTED and ROTTING CHRIST and plans are afoot for a small tour in the U.S. in summer 2007. We'll have to see what falls into place."
