Latest release: CODE RED
The phoenix from the ashes is a much-cited motif in cultural history. It seldom fits as well as it does with the triumphant return of PRIMAL FEAR. Only in this case, we have an eagle of steel rising from the ashes: Their new album »Code Red« — which marks their 13th studio offering — is both a rebirth and a hard-hitting metal lesson; it’s living proof of the healing power of music and the brotherhood behind the riffs. On »Code Red,« the German power-metal traditionalists deliver a new career best, which even puts 2020’s strong »Metal Commando« to shame. PRIMAL FEAR – risen from the dead! Three years after their first top 10 success with »Metal Commando« and 25 years after their legendary debut »Primal Fear,« vocalist Ralf Scheepers, bassist/singer Mat Sinner, the triple guitar phalanx of Tom Naumann, Alex Beyrodt and Magnus Karlsson as well as drummer Michael Ehré are blasting us with a zeitgeisty manifesto that provides eleven essential arguments of why power metal will simply never go under. It’s advocates like PRIMAL FEAR who keep the flame alive.
