Ben Harris This sounds timeless. Not in any pathos-laden platitude bullshit way, but more in the sense that it sounds at once familiar yet otherworldly. These song structures feel archetypal, rhythms that are deeply inscribed onto one's prepersonal bodily nerves. Despite that they are difficult to place culturally, in terms of national, spiritual or artistic influence. Very enigmatic and interesting. Favorite track: DOOM I.

Deep Gloss Really, really great to have all these classic tracks on CD. I love the cassettes and downloads, but the sound is just that much better. If only more was on vinyl! Favorite track: DOOM II.

Odile A. O. Strik / Evening of Light And now it’s time for some A+ ritual electrodoom from the esteemed Primitive Knot. Less crunchy than their recent albums, Thee Opener Of The Way (2018, Aurora Borealis) is a droning and hypnotic tour de force. +1 tape you need to grab ASAP. Favorite track: Devotion And Decay In Interstitial Space.

about

Aurora Borealis proudly presents ‘Thee Opener Of The Way’ by Primitive Knot.

Hailing from Manchester, UK, Primitive Knot have created a cult underground following with their prolific output and aura of arcane mystery. Primitive Knot cover a lot of musical ground, from motorik Krautrock to primitive thrashing doom metal, garage rock to the kind of industrial pop bombast associated with latter era Sisters of Mercy. Yet at all times, the sound is pure Primitive Knot. ‘Thee Opener Of The Way’ sees Primitive Knot exploring the spiritual outer realms with drone, doom and dark ambient methodology, delivering over an hour of shamanic cosmic drift.

‘Thee Opener Of The Ways’ collects the sold out tape releases of ‘DOOM I’ and ‘DOOM II’, combining them with the tracks ‘Thee Opener Of The Way’ and ‘Devotion And Decay In Interstitial Space’ to bring this material to a wider audience in a cohesive album format.

Mastered by James Plotkin.

‘Thee Opener Of The Ways’ will be released on CD, limited tape (with download code) and digital formats. A further Primitive Knot album will follow later on Aurora Borealis.
