Primal - having existed from the beginning; in an earliest or original stage or state; "aboriginal forests"; "primal eras before the appearance of life on earth"; "the forest primeval"; "primordial matter"; "primordial forms of life"
After some early releases on EEE Recordings, followed by the split album 'Equinox' on Hypnotic Dirge Records in 2009, Old Forgotten Lands' much-awaited full-length album 'Primal' finally sees the light of day. Whereas the older material was more synth-based ambient, the new material shows a nice progression from musician Elan O'Neal, and has a much more natural and organic feeling. Making use of various unique instruments such as a Tibetan singing bowl, a tambourine, wooden flute, violin, timpani, maracas, among others, as well as the use of field recordings, acoustic guitar, synth, and minimum vocals, when all is said and done, this is an ambitious and well-executed album spanning almost an hour in length. Primal also features guest appearances from some prolific special guests. Overall, this is a fantastic and diverse album which shows incredible maturity in a genre which can sometimes become repetitive and mundane, and should be definitely be appreciated by all fans of ambient, neo-folk, and experimental music.

A rich and evocative, complex sound, achieved with simple instruments, it perfectly conveys the feeling of primeval times when man was ruled by nature.
