Primordial start “Heathen Crusade To Doomsday” tour and release “Redemption at the Puritan’s Hand (Redux)”

Ireland’s finest, Primordial, start their “Heathen Crusade To Doomsday” tour and release “Redemption at the Puritan’s Hand (Redux)” today to celebrate last year’s 10th anniversary of the album masterpiece. As a bonus, the album will be re-released digitally with additional demo versions of all album tracks.

Primordial vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga comments:

“‘Redemption at the Puritan’s Hand’ is just over a decade old, the world seems very different now, who knows where we tread, we are about to set out on tour, the last one before doomsday? Who knows. Take a bite out of the apple while you can and see you down the front. As for the Redux? We found lurking in an old folder somewhere the pre mixed, pre-master versions of the album, not quite the demos for the album but somewhere in between, the sound is quite different, maybe warmer on some level, but there are different vocal patterns and takes, leads in different places, the flesh on the bones of the album without perhaps the skin! ‘Redemption’ was an important milestone in the band’s career, a difficult album to make, full of complications, illness, and conflict before we even mention almost being stranded in the Welsh valleys in the harshest of Winters up to our hips in snow! We ask you now to take a chunk of the flesh and have a bite and celebrate over a decade of ‘Redemption’ together with our long term co conspirators over at the great Metal Blade Records! See you on the other side”
