More Bands Announced for Uprising & Aftermath

27th May, De Montfort Hall, Leicester
Three Stages, One Iconic Venue and a whole lot of metal!

With the epic festival fast approaching, Uprising is thrilled to announce the final bands for a line-up that should already have any true metal head foaming in anticipation. With Irish black metal legends Primordial already announced as event headliners and with the Greek grunge/punk whirlwind that is Barb Wire Dolls headlining the second stage, this is one event that should be firmly emblazoned into the embers of your calendars.
Added to the iconic main stage are local Leicester legends,and previous Metal 2 the Masses winners, Resin whose unique brand of melodic and yet fearsomely heavy grunge has earned them a dedicated following. The band are opening the main event after the Leicester Metal 2 the Masses winner is announced, and are guaranteed to get people in the mood. Check out the stunning ‘persecution complex’ EP for a taste of what this band is about and make damn sure you get to the festival early because you’ll be kicking yourself for days if you miss it.
Meanwhile, the second stage has gained three amazing acts. Bruising Midlands sludge warlords The Darkhorse, former Bloodstock, Mammothfest and Mosh Against Cancer favourites whose epic new album ‘The carcass of the sun will sleep’ is snapping necks everywhere, will bring their demonically heavy low-end rumble to Leicester. Also added are the mighty Divine Chaos, an intense band whose crushing technicality is matched only by the sheer ferocity of their live presence. You would truly be foolish to miss them, ask anyone that saw them destroy the Sophie stage at Bloodstock last year! Last, but most certainly not least, are doom favourites Witchsorrow, whose last album, ‘No light only fear’, is considered a masterpiece of the doom genre. A compelling act on stage, the band will douse the sunlight with a performance that is sure to be memorable.
Previously announced acts include Onslaught official, Lawnmower Deth, Kill II This, Dave McPherson (InMe acoustic ), Boss Keloid and Hærken and the festival will also host the region’s Metal 2 The Masses final during the afternoon, acts TBC. read more

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. read more
