Irish band Primordial, have just launched a brand new video for the song “Wield Lightning To Split The Sun”
Primordial comments on the video:
“We Wield Lightning Before The Sun” has become an important song for us, the dramatic album closer has become something of a natural call to arms that people have really taken to their hearts. The video is a mixture of live outdoor footage shot at the Sonnenwende festival in Austria mixed with indoor footage from this years Blastfest in Bergen, Norway, all cut by Costin Chiorneau who also made the artwork for the last album. A hymn to the animal in man that needs to be exercised not exorcised!
“Wield Lightning To Split The Sun” is taken off the bands latest album Where Greater Men Have Fallen available for purchase from Metal Blade .
There you can also watch the bands first video clip for “Babel’s Tower”.
Primordial will play a string of selected club shows and festivals in the months to come.

An eight track, fifty-eight minute magnum opus, “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” was recorded at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma) and delivers some of the band’s deepest, most methodically arranged, thematically profound and plainly gripping compositions of their winding catalogue of sonic enormity.
