The Primals (ザ・プライマルズ?) are a band formed in 2014 by Masayoshi Soken, the sound director of Final Fantasy XIV. They cover music from XIV, the majority of which was composed by Soken, in the style of heavy metal. The band first appeared on the arrangement album, From Astral to Umbral, and released their first studio album in 2018.

The band is named after the primals, the summoned monsters of Final Fantasy XIV.
