A few days ago the Canadian duo Itus released their five track Doom Metal EP, ‘Primordial‘. The EP strikes a nice balance between the darker songs and the more easily digestible songs which shows the bands broadening range. I’m always happy to hear a band take that step. I think it’s important for the overall experience of an album when it sounds multifaceted. It’s also great for the longevity of a band. Here’s what the band had to say about the ‘Primordial‘ EP:
We think that Itus could have a much wider appeal than previous efforts of ours. Songs on the EP like ‘Cloud Reader’ and ‘This Can’t Be” are much more accessible, especially with Vandenbosch’s newly developed clean singing. We think the heavier tracks will strike a nice balance with the mellower tracks on the EP as a whole.
Here’s what the band had to say about the song ‘Primordial‘:
We chose to make this the first song we release because to us, it embodies the aspect of human savagery. Primordial uses the idea of coming out of a euphoric bliss into a hellish existence. Its lyrics comment on what forces within people work to pull society back down to chaos. This is the most aggressive song on the EP with its crisp, and aggressive guitar tones that really make it stand out from the other songs.
