Primordial, Live in London
Venue: Islington Academy, London
Ireland’s incensed metallers raise the spirits
MALTHUSIAN  may have listened to Deathspell Omega once or twice, but unlike many of the tired, hackneyed rip-offs that have done the rounds over the last half-decade, this lot have done something interesting and individual with it. It’s atmospheric as hell, but there’s a twisted structure to the claustrophobic chaos that makes their brutal evil gripping. The early start means half the ticket-buyers miss it, which is a big loss.
