The Pulse reports that Irish pagan metal outfit PRIMORDIAL will film its January 19, 2008 concert at the 750-capacity Button Factory (formerly Temple Bar Music Centre) in Dublin, Ireland for a possible DVD.
According to promoter Fergal "H" Holmes of D.M.E., the show has been selling strongly, with over half of pre-sale tickets being purchased by fans from outside Ireland. "Swedish, Finnish, German, all around Europe — there's been loads," explained Holmes.
Fans can expect a big production show and the band has ordered in extra lighting for the event.
The European head honcho of the band's record label, Metal Blade, is expected in town, as well as journalists and photographers from some of Europe's top magazines — all flying in for the event, which is arguably the first of such a magnitude to involve a band from the Irish metal scene. "If PRIMORDIAL weren't from Ireland, they are a band I'd still be booking to play here. They're a band that can play a venue the size of the Button Factory," Holmes told The Pulse.
Holmes expects the band to play a set of between 80 and 90 minutes following support slots from Cork's FOR RUIN and reformed Irish doomsters GRAVEYARD DIRT.
