This year, the honors of Under the Doom’s Warm up Session will be made by Primordial, and after all this time, one feels that the band is starting to be a part of the family (which is not a bad thing at all). This time, they’re here to promote their new full-length “Exile amongst the ruins” and we’re expecting to listen some new and old material in this show.
This return to Portugal will be divided between Porto and Lisbon and the shows will take place this September, on the 21st at Hard Club (Porto) and 22nd at RCA Club (Lisbon). Sharing the stage with the Irish, we’ll have the Portuguese Basalto (only in Porto), Decayed (only in Lisbon) and Aura.
Info regarding the shows:
Tickets for both nights are available beforehand for the price of 23€ and 25€ at the doors of both clubs. If you want to catch the early bird price, you can buy your tickets online at – Unkind, Letsgo and Masketicket. Tickets are also available in some of the usual places such as Piranha Music Store, Bunker Store, Hard Club ticket office, Old Skull Inn, Carbono Amadora, RCA CLUB Lisboa, Side B Rocks Alenquer, and Glamorama Rockshop.
About the bands:
After 31 years of career, the Irish Primordial keep wandering and, this year they delivered their newest full-length “Exile Amongst the Ruins”.
This coven is credited for being the first black metal band emerging from Ireland and the celtic folk blend present in their music is undeniable. With them, they bring not only their music and their stories, but also the tales of men that lived and died before them, their battles and of many lost empires
With a Post black metal approach that subtly intertwines with a mournful post-rock, Aura comes from the northern Guimarães. Although their Bandcamp is still a bit empty, one immediately gets stroke by the intensity and depth of “Hamartia” and it sure is worth a visit!
Coming from the inner mountainous landscapes of Portugal (Viseu), this Doom/Stoner band incarnates the nature of basalto and their music gets as physical as the mentioned stone. Active since 2015, this three men group just released their newest work “Doença”. And, as the title announces, they will surely build a “dark aura” on their act.
Decayed is one of the oldest and more active black metal bands in Portugal. The have almost three decades of experience, without ever losing their identity. Currently promoting their latest release “Of Fire and Evil”, these masters of dirty and decadent blackness will surely make it worth your while.
