Belgian Thrash metallers PRIMAL CREATION release new single “Not In My Backyard”

The song aptly titled “Not In My Backyard” was recorded and mixed by Francis Snebbout at Oakwood Recording Studio and mixed by Alan Douches at West West Side Music, NY. Their brand new track is accompanied by a video, shot and edited by Yarne Heylen (Carnation) at Project Zero Studio. The artwork was created by Thijs De Rijcke.

Bassplayer Ewoud comments: “this song feels like another step forward in our development as a band. We really found a good flow as a band while writing and it shows. I’m psyched to bring this banger to the stage!”

Frontman Koen adds: “drawing from the themes of our previous releases, Not In My Backyard really is about the human condition. It’s an observation of today’s society, where lack of longterm visions and minimal effort seem to be the norm. Musically we put the riffs on the forefront, but there’s also some changes in tempo and a tasty solo by Ruben. All the while invoking moshpit frenzy, not holding back on the focused aggression. Last but not least, I feel that the artwork and the video really complement the atmosphere, sound and theme of the song!”
