METAL/ROCK with DRAMATIC intention, based on the principles and techniques of classical music. The aesthetic is built upon the triad STRENGTH, BEAUTY & POETICS.
The debut album Dying Like The Sun In The West was released online in March 29/2019. It’s a self-produced record mixed by one of the best european metal mixer/producers today: Jens Bogren (Symphony X, Angra, Sepultura, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Devin Townsend); and mastered by world renowned engineer Bob Katz (award-winning records for EMI, BMG, Virgin, Warner, Sony Music, Walt Disney). Each song has its own artwork, made by the talented polish artist Igor Morski.
The second album is currently being written…
Primal Sinner represents for us the starting point of the human condition. The stage where the being is separated from the Original Unity and enters an irretrievable problematic condition, characterized by conflict, polarity, incompleteness…
Primal Sinner is, therefore, a symbol of the first human being. Author —or even victim— of the metaphysical “sin” of division.
Manifestation and fateful consequence of the bipolar force of the universe, which gives rise to a creature that is born and “evolves” not only from the physical division of its cells but also from its spirit and its world, fragmented into an endless number of opposite poles, including good and evil.
Without knowing how to live —nor how to die—, conscious and unconscious of his condition, he attempts to understand it, yearning to solve its existential dissonance and reintegrate himself by a search for the absolute in experiences of unity and totality —like art—, achieving it only transitorily.
Hence his timeless drama, always valid, inherited from the first man to the last; until men continue to exist.
After completing their university studies in music, Tejada brothers (guitarrists & songwriters) created in 2019 a new metal band called Primal Sinner.
Primal Sinner a project based on the principles and creative techniques of classical music, trying to find a dramatic way of making metal music/rock music that, within the entertainment industry, could achieve the category of art.
With a lineup completed with bassist Freddie Zambrano and singer “Dio” López, and the hired talented drummer Freddie Olave, they undertake the production of their debut album, Dying Like The Sun In The West.
This new album release (2019) was made under international standars due to the involved staff: It was mixed by one of the best european metal mixer/producers today: Jens Bogren (Symphony X, Angra, Sepultura, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Devin Townsend); and mastered by world renowned engineer Bob Katz (award-winning records for EMI, BMG, Virgin, Warner, Sony Music, Walt Disney). The creative team got reinforced by recruiting the talented polish artist Igor Morski -artwork creator-, responsible for materializing the visual dimension of every song for a band that wants to go beyond the realm of sound.
This album has been finished in december 2018, waiting for a distribution deal. Meanwhile, Primal Sinner is currently dedicated to the preparations for the online release of this record, rehearsals for developing the live show, brand creation and the writing process of (10) new songs for the next album.
Finally, there’s one question to answer: why, in all this time, the remarkable inexistence of social media and live shows? Since its creation, Primal Sinner understood that without a truly professional record the opportunities for a colombian band are few or low quality, that good conditions could not be demanded from concert promoters, and that social media content would be irrelevant and self-defeating.
In consequence, the band decided to take a different than usual route: all public activity was going to be deliberately avoided (including live shows and social media) until having a professional album; and the band would be completely dedicated to crafting its musical identity (dramatic music), collecting the funds for the record and producing it.
The road was a lot longer than imagined, full of inevitable obstacles for an independent band trying on their own to fulfill international standars on their debut album, but the goal was achieved and the group began its public activity in 2019.
