Cult Irish metal band Primordial has premiered a rendition of the 1966 track "Dark Horse on the Wind." Check it out below, courtesy of Noisey.Vice.com, and the following press release was also issued about the track:

"'Dark Horse on the Wind' was originally written by late Irish musician Liam Weldon in 1966, and laments the lost dreams of the Irish Volunteers of the controversial 1916 Easter Rising.

"Upon its original release, the song was a searing indictment of society in post-independence Ireland, and a warning of the political troubles yet to come. The original Weldon version is a staple of the long-running band's live performance, as Primordial uses it as their introduction to every performance.

"Primordial's rendition of the track is taken from the forthcoming compilation ‘One And All, Together, For Home.’ ‘One And All, Together, For Home’ was assembled by Drudkh main-man Roman Sayenko, and brings together a group of renowned European metal bands to pay homage their distinct, unique heritages. Each band employs their own means to find and present their respective cultural roots to the world via song.

"The eight appearing artists contribute a total of 17 tracks in the form of traditional song interpretations, cover versions of folk artists, or the use of themes and melodies from their musical heritages in original compositions. The tracks found in ‘One And All, Together, For Home’ are available exclusively on this compilation."
