Watch Primordial’s First Professionally Shot Video, “Babel’s Tower”

Ireland’s heavy metal outfit, Primordial, recently released their first professionally shot video for “Babel’s Tower,” which comes off the band’s new album, Where Greater Men Have Fallen. The Gareth Averill-directed video is, essentially, a short film — and it’s damn beautiful. From the slow motion style to the color scheme to the landscape and design, everything about this video is spot-on perfect. And that’s how it should be, because it matches the emotive power of the track itself.

Primordial talked about the video:

It was really about time, right? This far down the road, we finally made our first video eight albums in. So we trusted Gareth Averill and crew who also made our DVD [All Empires Fall] a couple of years back. The traditional band-jamming-in-a-warehouse scenario was not something that entered our heads. We wanted something broad and cinematic; something visually striking and arresting. So we spent a couple of cold and windswept days standing on the side of a mountain in Ireland. Here you have it, and about time…

Thank you, Primordial, for going above and beyond.
