Toronto’s ITUS is the latest in Canadian doom featuring heavy, brooding and psychedelic tones meshed with horror-inspired sounds. Primordial paints the mood like a classic horror creature reveal. It’s reminiscent of Celtic Frost. Abrasive and plodding, Primordial accentuates the brutality of man with dark riffage. Atmospheric and energetic, Cloud Reader contains clean vocals and provides a nice balance for the heavier tracks on the album. Similarly, This Can’t Be slows things down the “cosmic caravan” and tones down the aggression.
