London melodic Metallers Primitai will release their new album, ‘The Calling’, On May 25th 2018 and something special is about to be unleashed.


‘The Calling’ is a killer slab of high quality melodic Metal and today the first single from the new album is released and is premiering here on MetalTalk. Here’s ‘Overdrive’.

Primitai (pronouned Primi-tie) draw inspiration from classic Heavy Metal and combine it with a modern production, intensity and a subtle progressive edge. Whether sharing the stage with NWOBHM bands like Saxon, Power Metallers Edguy, thrash bands like Warbringer or even Scandinavian sleaze rock like Crashdiet, the power, melody and intensity of Primitai’s songs and performance has struck a chord with fans across a wide spectrum of Metal.

The cover artwork of ‘The Calling’ was painted by Claudio Bergamin who is known from his colaborations with Battle Beast, Nocturnal Rites, and most recently Judas Priest, for which he created the already iconic ‘Firepower’ album artwork.

Here’s the official trailer for ‘The Calling’.

Primitai’s breakthrough came in 2010 with the release of their second album, ‘Line Of Fire, which lead to UK tours and festivals including Hard Rock Hell, Bloodstock, Hammerfest, High Voltage and Wacken Cruise.

Their 2013 album, ‘Rise Again’, mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordstrom and featuring a guest appearance from Richie Faulkner of Judas Priest, pushed them higher to dates with Sepultura and Saxon, and praise from the biggest rock publications.

After a 2015 UK tour with Wolf, the band went into studio to make ‘Night Brings Insanity’ with production handled by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer). The album was released in 2016 and propelled them to headline shows the length and breadth of the country, and slots with bands as diverse as Hell, Sodom, Power Quest, Crazy Lixx and Blaze Bayley.

1. Possess Me
