Irish metal band Primordial just released a music video for "Stolen Years" to go along with the announcement of their new record Exile Amongst The Ruins. The band worked on the record with producer producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on their 2016 live album Gods to the Godless. The album was recorded at Dublin's Camelot Studios which was located adjacent to Primordial's rehearsal room.
Commenting on "Stolen Years," A.A. Nemtheanga said, "'Stolen Years' may seem like a strange choice as our lead single, and on the face of if I guess it is. It's not a blood and thunder epic about tragedy and might and the ruin of nations, nor is it nine minute epistle of doom. Have no fear, the album does contain those also but to open this time we chose something different. This album has some surprises and this is one of them, a short and painfully simple song which almost didn't make the final cut if you can believe so. The video, cut by Costin Chioreanu, is about the journey involved in finally getting to that moment where you walk on stage, the song itself about that last night on earth that comes to us all, sometimes we never know when that might be, hold your loved ones tight tonight, this could be it…"
