The Halo inspired two man project, comprised of vocalist Ben Duerr and multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Wiseman, released an EP entitled ‘Inferi Sententia‘ in July of 2014, and have since amassed a solid fanbase in the metal underground due to a solid work ethic and by maintaining a consistently engaging social media presence. The pair had the following to say about the upcoming release:
On August 8, 2014, we began the process of writing Primordial. As with any creative endeavor, the material has gone through numerous revisions to ensure that we were pleased with the end result. DIY recording sessions commenced in early July 2015, and we have to admit, there isn’t a better feeling than being able to witness our own creative evolution, as the pieces slowly came together while we continued to build a diehard fanbase through hard work and determination. A lot of sweat and tears went into this album, and we couldn’t be any more excited to unleash this beast into the world. We definitely appreciate all the support and hope everybody enjoys the record as much as we enjoyed making it!

Metal media scribe, Connor Welsh of has been following Shadow of Intent for some time, and had the following to say about the forthcoming album:
Primordial is a comprehensive experience that demands to be heard in full. From its subtle beginning to its cataclysmic conclusion, Shadow of Intent’s epic full length release is a comprehensive display of flesh-shredding aggression and skull-shattering technicality…
If it isn’t already crushingly clear, ‘Primordial‘ is a must have album to kick off 2016, and Shadow of Intent is definitely a band to keep an eye on.
