27th May, De Montfort Hall, Leicester
Three Stages, One Iconic Venue and a whole lot of metal!
Uprising is excited to announce the addition of three stunning bands to an already packed line up. Following on from last year’s fire-and flame-drenched performance from Hell, we are proud to announce that Irish black metal legends Primordial will be headlining the event. A favourite on festival circuits, Primordial are set to bring their bleak yet elegant epics to the prestigious De Montfort Hall. A major coup for Leicester’s burgeoning music scene, Primordial promise to close the night with a grandeur and gravitas that few extreme metal artists can hope to match.
Also added to the bill are renowned British black metallers Eastern Front. Formed in 2006, the band released their impressive debut album, ‘Blood on snow’, via Candlelight records (former home to Opeth and Anaal Nathrakh to name but two) whilst last year’s astonishing ‘EmpirE’ saw the band record one track with Dani Filth as a guest, cementing their reputation as a black metal band of potent force.
