Primevia played at Adelaide - Summer Autumn 2013 (April 2013)
Time on stage: 9.20pm
Primevia was first conceived in 2007 by Adelaide session drummer and vocalist, Garry Stevenson (ex Old Bastards, Wheels of Steel, Break and Enta, and Force) after watching the bands Kamelot and After Forever on a late night music program. Several years of work went into conceptualising the bands image and sound, and development of the name and the Cat Warrior logo.
The original concept was for studio project to produce 4 mini albums - eventually becoming a double album - around a short story of myth and magic, telling the intertwined story of four characters. Decision was made in Dec 2011 to become a touring band and write music for the project while developing a stage show. Through 2012 and 2013 Primevia went through several line up changes trying to find the right combination to produce the original goal.
The band floundered, several times, due to direction conflicts and style differences - and the decision was made in 2013 to "Rub it Out" and start fresh.
Drums Garry, Guitarist Mark and Vocalist JJ after much discussion have reformed as the new Mk3 Primevia with a clear direction and renewed vigour. New bass player Steve has joined to complete the line up. A two pronged attack Primevia will produce a new Metal/Rock live show and also write and produce the "Metal/Rock Opera" recording project.
Influences include melodic and symphonic metal bands like Avantasia, Holyhell, Nightwish, Epica, Kamelot and even some old skool metal bands like Maiden, and while these are influential the Primevia Style is still....well Primevia.
Peace and Love to all
Thgazzman, Mark ,Steve and JJ
