PRIMORDIAL: 'All Empires Fall' HD Trailer Available

March 5, 2010

Irish pagan masters PRIMORDIAL will release their first-ever DVD, "All Empires Fall", in the U.S. on March 16 via Metal Blade Records.

A high-definition trailer for the set can be viewed below (courtesy of Bloody Disgusting).

Disc 1 of the two-disc set is the centerpiece of the DVD and features a full PRIMORDIAL headline show recorded live on January 24, 2009 in the band's hometown of Dublin, Ireland. The concert was filmed with five cameras and has an exceptional vintage look due to the hard work in post-production. A truly impressive and powerful live gig, exciting from start to finish in front of die-hard PRIMORDIAL audience and a perfect soundtrack that is available in stereo and 5.1!

Disc 2 features live clips from the band's appearances at Ragnarök Festival (Germany),Hove Festival (Norway) and Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium) in 2008. The second disc also contains a band documentary with all the inside stories and loads of ancient footage from the early stages of the band. The documentary has a playing time of approximately 60 minutes. Interviews with all band members and rehearsal footage complete the second disc of the set.

The special deluxe version of "All Empires Fall" features expanded packaging and two additional audio CDs featuring the Dublin show.

Commented vocalist Alan "Nemtheanga" Averill: "The gods have been working hard dogging the release of our first DVD, 'All Empires Fall', but finally we are ready to prevail.

"The DVD will contain our Dublin show from last year, a documentary and bonus material from recent festivals. The special edition will contain the audio discs of the Dublin show, so you can hear how some old classics are played now, some almost two decades after writing.

"So how does it look? The simple answer is and without exaggeration possibly one of the best metal live shows I've ever seen. We filmed it on analog reels, cut it with frightening pace and mixed it up with some very unconventional camera angles. It has the feel of a classic show from the late '70s — not the clean, clinical digital vacuum most modern shows are filmed in. We also invested a lot of time, money and effort, so don't expect one of those free recordings most festivals and soundstages offer. As normal, we didn't do anything conventionally so there are no boring balcony stills or side-of-stage montages. No overdubs, auto-tuning or drop-ins; we are proud that 'All Empires Fall' shows us as we are and as a PRIMORDIAL show always is. Blood and thunder and no quarter given from start to finish…"
