Having recently supported Cradle Of Filth alongside sets at Bloodstock Festival and Hammerfest, theatrical metallers WARD XVI bring you a genre-defying mix of hard-hitting metal riffs, off-beat ska rhythms, melancholic piano, jaunty accordion and a hint of electro.
See them live at the Primordial General Mayhem 2022.
Tickets are on general sale now via See Tickets.
Dare you enter Ward XVI, the maximum-security unit for the criminally insane? Freaks, outcasts and oddballs you are all most welcome to get close and personal with the UK’s most seductive and brutal serial killer Psychoberrie as she spins a haunting tale of depravity and manipulation. Watch in shock and awe as you witness her bloody story on stage.
Drawing from their eclectic background, Ward XVI are inspired by a whole host of musical masters, including Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Rob Zombie, Diablo Swing Orchestra and Avatar. No one is safe from her clutches.
Primordial Radio, the UK’s Premier Rock & Metal station, is very excited to once again be hosting the Primordial General Mayhem for 2022.
The two-day event is taking place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd April 2022, inside a state-of-the-art venue (The Epic Centre) at the Lincolnshire Showground.
