9. Primordial – “Come the Flood”

Primordial Where Greater Men Have Fallen

Off Irish pagan metal band Primordial’s upcoming eighth album, “Come the Flood” is seven minutes long, which is hardly notable itself — five of the eight songs on 2011’s Redemption at the Puritan’s Hand were longer. What’s notable is the combination of Alan Averill’s vocal delivery (almost a hook in and of itself) and the surge in energy that comes later, around two-thirds of the way through. Both elements help the expansive and stormy track fly by even though it’s not particularly fast. Where Greater Men Have Fallen is out November 25th via Metal Blade. –Michael Madden
