PRECAMBRIAN stream PRIMITIVE REACTION debut at album at "Legacy" magazine's website - features members of DRUDKH, HATE FOREST, BLOOD OF KINGU+++

Today, Ukrainian black metal cult  Precambrian  stream the entirety of their highly anticipated debut album,  Tectonics , at  Legacy  magazine's website . Set for international release on August 21st via  Primitive Reaction , hear  Precambrian 's  Tectonics  in its entirety exclusively  HERE .

Precambrian  hail from Ukraine, and include in their ranks a wealth of underground experience. Formed as a power-trio and remaining a power-trio,  Precambrian 's lineup all currently play in Drudkh, have all played in the much-missed Blood of Kingu, and vocalist/guitarist Roman Saenko was a founding member of the influential Hate Forest. It's that last-named band which bears the most semblance to  Precambrian , and indeed is that the guiding directive here: to carry forth the legacy of Hate Forest with nearly all of the current Drudkh lineup.

With that schematic firmly in place, the  Proarkhe  EP was birthed in 2014 and followed by  Aeon  EP two years later; just last year, both EPs were combined together on the  Glaciology  EP with three unreleased tracks. However, the full glory of  Precambrian  is at least revealed with the band's long-awaited debut album,  Tectonics . Immediately, the ominous surge of classic Hate Forest is felt, mesmerizing and hypnotic and utterly engrossing, all while being barbarically unleashed through savage, searing speed. It's a peculiar disconnect - throttling violence vs. trance-inducing levitation, one birthing the other (or perhaps the other way around) - but it coalesces with power and poignancy around the grandly guttural throat of Saenko. But, to simply liken  Precambrian  to Hate Forest Mk II is to severely undercut the strident 'n' stringent artistry of  Tectonics , where its undeniably martial aspect betrays a wealth of textural imagination; the finest of details and most subtle of nuance are explored and expanded upon with paradoxical uncompromising fervor. Thus, in that latter element, perhaps it is accurate to sire  Precambrian  as the rightful successor to Hate Forest's cherished legacy...

Any way one wishes to absorb the vast, violent world of  Tectonics , the sum result is the same:  Precambrian  perform austere-yet-grandiose black metal art exclusively!
