Track Premiere: Primordial – Dark Horse On The Wind

Posted on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Roadburn is very pleased to present a brand track new track from Primordial. ‘Dark Horse On The Wind’ is taken from the forthcoming compliation, One and All, Together, for Home, which will be released in Europe on May 23rd through Season of Mist.

This compilation features international metal artists gathered by DRUDKH mastermind Roman Sayenko. All participating bands are expressively linked in their artistic output to the culture and history of their countries of origin. Therefore they represent eight regions of modern Europe and yet find common ground in the different musical traditions they explore. Each artist employs their own means to find and present their roots to the world. You will discover interpretations of traditional songs, cover versions of folk artists or the use of themes and melodies from their musical heritage in original compositions.

History of the song explained by Alan Averill Nemtheanga: “Dark Horse On The Wind: Possibly the greatest piece of Irish ‘folk’ music at least I have ever heard, the original by Liam Weldon recorded in the 1970′s is one of the most spine tingling and truly tragic stand alone vocal pieces that encapsulates Ireland’s bloody and tragic history like nothing I’ve ever heard before. Recording it was daunting and if I have even risen to a minute % of the original and make people discover Weldon’s work through breathing life into the song for a completely different ‘scene’, then my work is done and I can rest proud.”
