PRIMAL FEAR - Seven Seals

Released on: 2005-10-21

The German Metal Commando is back – stronger than ever!!! The legendary fivepiece has returned to serve us with their sixth studio album and a well-deserved lesson on how Heavy Metal should sound in 2005. So join PRIMAL FEAR to discover what lies hidden behind the „Seven Seals“!Produced by the band’s mastermind Mat Sinner and the renowned Charlie Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, Halford, Motorhead) and mixed by the legendary Mike Frazer (AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, The Cult etc.) at “The Warehouse Studios” in Vancouver/Canada, „Seven Seals“ is undoubtedly the most varied, epic and musically sophisticated album PRIMAL FEAR have released so far. Everything the band has ever incorporated in their sound and much more can be found in these ten new tracks. It all stems from the masterly song writing, the attitude, the ambition and a totally new atmosphere plus a taste for superb melodies that turns „Seven Seals“ into a new unforgettable experience and catapults PRIMAL FEAR into another dimension of Rock music. The pounding rhythm section and massive riffing on neck breakers tunes such as ’Evil Spell’, ’Carniwar’ or the album opener ’Demons And Angels’ provide the right ammunition for pure headbanging frenzy and metal mayhem, but with an audibly different attitude. ’Diabolus` and the stunningly beautiful ballad ’In Memory’ touch the opposite spectrum of emotions with intricate six-string work, orchestra arrangements and Ralf Scheepers’ incredibly varied vocals that range on absolute high class quality. Amidst these two poles sits the heartpiece of the album, the first single and title track ’Seven Seals’: The ultra-catchy chorus and midtempo heaviness turn this one into an all time classic and a song for every Rock & Metal fan. Add all of these elements together and you can only come to one conclusion: PRIMAL FEAR have achieved the impossible and even outnumbered themselves with this masterpiece. PRIMAL FEAR are in control!Founded in late 1997 by Mat Sinner (Sinner), Ralf Scheepers (Ex-Gamma Ray) and Tom Naumann (Sinner), the newborn PRIMAL FEAR shot straightaway to position 48 of the German album charts with their self titled debut. The follow-up „Jaws Of Death“ saw our favourite German Metal Commando turning into an International Metal revelation as the band conquered the stages of Europe, Brazil and Japan in 1999. „Nuclear Fire“ brought PRIMAL FEAR an even superior recognition in 2001. The album (featuring the all time classics ’Angel In Black’ and ‘Nuclear Fire’) received rave reviews and scored the band’s highest chart positions so far (# 37 in Germany, # 23 in Japan amongst others) Primal Fear embarked on a sold out tour all across Europe, South America and played their first festivals in the US. Enhancing their sound with experimental and progressive edges in their songwriting, 2002`s “Black Sun” was another step forward for PRIMAL FEAR. And of course it led the band to more charts and tour success! In the meantime, founding member Tom Naumann made his comeback to replace Henny Wolter on guitar. In 2003, one of the most respected metal drummers, Canadian Randy Black (Ex-Annihilator, Bif Naked) joined the folds. This killer line up immediately conquered the U.S. for the “Metal Gods” tour and released the massive “Devil`s Ground” album in early 2004. This landmark album featured the immortal hymn ’Metal Is Forever’ that placed the band firmly in the charts throughout Europe and Japan while more live tours followed across Europe, the US and South America. How can this be surpassed you ask? Just wait for the “Seven Seals” to be revealed and the return of PRIMAL FEAR to European stages in December and January. – 2005 will be under the sign of the eagle!
