Primal Age - A Hell Romance

Back in 1997 a French band called Primal Age was founded and in April ’99 they released their first full-length. The fans of these French guys had to wait a really long time, because A Hell Romance, their second album, was released 8 years later in September 2007. The music can shortly be described as a mixture between metal and hardcore. This mixture is far from unique and therefore the question is whether they succeed to outstand all those other bands or not.

After an almost three minute lasting intro, which is way too long if you ask me, Primal Age brutally kicks you in the face with ‘Genesis Of Our Self End’. A Hell Romance doesn’t have this polished – typical metalcore – sound, but it sounds raw, aggressive and brutal. The band sounds very intense and they try to do their own thing. Songs like ‘Suicide Intervention To Cherish The Grace’ are really convincing, but not everything is perfect.

At the end of the album the vocals bore me a bit. In every song the vocals of Didier are a bit of the same and therefore the album is just a couple of songs too long. Furthermore this is definitely a band to check out, because they simply produce good music.
