PRIMORDIAL : New Music Video & Upcoming Tour Dates… Posted: 06/05/2015 by John O'Brien


Ireland’s leading metal protagonists PRIMORDIAL have premiered a brand new music video for the track ‘Wield Lightning to Split the Sun’, taken from the bands latest album “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” which is still available for purchase at THIS location! Where you can also view the bands first official music video clip for “Babel’s Tower”!

PRIMORDIAL comments on the video: ” ‘Wield Lightning To Split The Sun’ has become an important song for us, the dramatic album closer has become something of a natural call to arms that people have really taken to their hearts. The video is a mixture of live outdoor footage shot at the Sonnenwende festival in Austria mixed with indoor footage from this years Blastfest in Bergen, Norway, all cut by Costin Chiorneau who also made the artwork for the last album. A hymn to the animal in man that needs to be exercised not exorcised!”

PRIMORDIAL will play a string of selected club shows and festivals in the months to come.

An eight track, fifty-eight minute magnum opus, “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” was recorded at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma) and delivers some of the band’s deepest, most methodically arranged, thematically profound and plainly gripping compositions of their winding catalog of sonic enormity.
