PRIMAL FEAR Preparing 'Apocalypse' For Fans in 2018

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2018
Categories: 
 
PRIMAL FEAR are back in the studio working on their upcoming new album, “Apocalypse”. 12 brand new crushing heavy metal tracks have been selected, out of 30 newly written tracks, which will be produced by PF's own Mat Sinner and engineered & mixed by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Denmark. The album is tentatively scheduled for release in mid-2018.
 
New song titles include “Apocalypse”, “New Rise”, “The Hounds Of Justice”, “King Of Madness”, “The Beast”, “Blood, Sweat & Fear” and the 10 minute extravaganza “Eye Of The Storm”. Stylistically, the new tunes follow the same path that started on the most successful PRIMAL FEAR album so far, “Rulebreaker”.
 
Ralf Scheepers: "I don’t know where it comes from and how we do it, but we seem to have a real flow in writing some cool heavy metal tunes since quite a while. And again, nothing will be released which we are not 100% satisfied with. You can trust the seal of the brand PRIMAL FEAR.”
 
Mat Sinner adds: “I’m really surprised about the creativity in the band. Every band member contributes on the song writing and I’m super happy about the chosen songs and the production so far. You can expect a full energy driven metal album with a maximum attitude and raw power!”
 
PRIMAL FEAR will support the new album release with an extensive summer festival tour in 2018, followed by a world tour.

PRIMAL FEAR Add 4 New Tracks To 'Best Of Fear' Compilation

Frontiers Music Srl are pleased to announce the release of Primal Fear's 'The Best Of Fear' on November 10th, 2017! 
Check out the new song, 'If Looks Could Kill' (a Heart cover) here: https://youtu.be/V-R0xgaGYGY
 
'Best of Fear', as the name implies, is a new best of compilation from German heavy metal masters, Primal Fear. This double album culls together the best material from Primal Fear's last 10 years of work (including the albums 'New Religion,' '16.6 (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead),' 'Unbreakable,' 'Delivering the Black,' & 'Rulebreaker'), plus four brand new songs recorded specifically for this release.
Mat Sinner says: 'We wanted to come up with something special instead of a regular "Best-Of' album. We've recorded 4 new songs including a cover of the Heart song "If Looks Could Kill' and in my view one of the best vocal performances of Ralf Scheepers' career - crushing! We've divided the album into 2 CDs - on CD 1 the new tracks and our most favorite rockers, on CD 2 the epic stuff and the long songs including an exciting artwork by Stan Decker. This is a compilation we're proud of and much more than a collector's item!'
This comprehensive overview of Primal Fear's body of work over the past ten years is aptly split into two records which showcase the magnificence (and constantly maturing) songwriting abilities of these heavy metal lifers. The first album encompasses the heavier and more straight ahead material, while the second shows the more involved and epic side of the band's songwriting.
So, whether you're just discovering Primal Fear or you're a long-time fan, this is a really good overview of their music over the past ten years and is not to be missed!

What we have here, is a metal monster! Yes, it’s tailor made for the metal audience, as have been all Primal Fear albums, so it’s a matter of personal taste of course. But if you have been a long time Primal Fear fan, or following Mat Sinner and Ralf Scheepers – then Rulebreaker is a buy or die release.
Contrary to the title, the guys don’t break any metal rule – instead they adhere to them to the letter. Big screaming riffs, big screaming vocals and a high impact rhythm section pounding out the tunes.
What the guys have done here is increase their credibility as one of Europe’s premiere pure metal bands.
And the energy within is hard to contain.
We have 11 tracks – all relatively concise at under 5 minutes and some under 4 – with one 10 minute epic right in the middle.
 
Highlights include the fast moving opener Angels Of Mercy; the darker chugging metal of The End Is Near and the more melodic Bullets & Tears (great hook); plus the anthemic Rulebreaker; the slow/fast/mid-paced/fast epic We Walk Without Fear and the brain crushing riffage of The Devil In Me.
The big metal ballad The Sky Is Burning is one of the biggest sounding tracks I’ve heard from these guys. Epic.

Everything I expected and have heard from the guys previously – just better. Really strong songs, a huge production and fabulous mix and lots and lots and lots of guitars. Loud guitars.

PRIMAL FEAR Unleash Their 'Rulebreaker' January 29

PRIMAL FEAR to return with a storming new studio album “Rulebreaker” - out on Frontiers in January!
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the new PRIMAL FEAR studio album “Rulebreaker” on January 29, 2016! Available in CD, deluxe CD/DVD and – in collaboration with Soulfood Music in Germany – also on vinyl and a special super-limited vinyl edition version featuring an eagle head on the vinyl, “Rulebreaker” combines the strongest PRIMAL FEAR moments ever, with a well-balanced typical PRIMAL FEAR trademark riff-vibe, crushing songs and some very ambitious musical journeys.
 
Singer Ralf Scheepers says: “We have so much energy, fantastic melodies and a hell of a drum groove on each and every song, there is no doubt that the fans will love it as much as I do! And again we have achieved to combine bombastic and atmospheric orchestral sounds with soaring heavy metal riffs and licks, together with ear splitting screams and also emotional sequences. We have kept the promise of being a heavy metal band with all the trademarks for which people love Primal Fear“.
 
After the massive “Delivering The Black” world tour, PRIMAL FEAR started the songwriting in spring 2015 and recorded at Hansen Studios in Denmark, with producer Mat Sinner and engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe). Mat Sinner adds: “We learnt a lot during the Delivering The Black sessions and the following world tour. We  tried to put this know-how and all the positive energy into the songs and production of “Rulebreaker. Working the 
second time with Jacob Hansen and even record in his studio, gave another dimension to our sound, plus the recording comeback of founding member Tom Naumann was the right move”. 
 
Classic and ultra-fresh Primal Fear riff-rockers like the album opener “Angels Of Mercy,” or the groove monsters “The End Is Near” and “Bullets And Tears” hit the bulls-eye from the beginning - just like the untamed speed killer “In Metal We Trust” and the metal anthem and title track “Rulebreaker”. The melodic and unique ballad “The Sky Is Burning” shows a different side of PRIMAL FEAR with a new vibe and a monster chorus. And of course, PRIMAL FEAR added again a 11-minute plus Prog Metal tour de force entitled “We Walk Without Fear”, spiced with big orchestral arrangements and complex sound designs.
 
PRIMAL FEAR are about to release what is definitely their strongest album ever: “RULEBREAKER”.  Don’t miss the German Metal Commando on their worldwide tour in 2016!
 
“Rulebreaker” tracklisting includes:
Angels Of Mercy; The End Is Near; Bullets & Tears; Rulebraker; In Metal We Trust; We Walk Without Fear; At War With The World; The Devil In Me; Constant Heart; The Sky Is Burning; Raving Mad; Final Call (Bonus Track – deluxe edition only); Don’t Say You’ve Never Been Warned (Bonus Track– deluxe edition only).
 
DVD (deluxe edition only): The End Is Near (Videoclip); Angels Of Mercy (Videoclip); Making Of Rulebreaker.
