Primal Fear

The European power metal combo Primal Fear has been kicking around the metal underground for years, refining their brand of melodic riffing and soaring vocals. Their sound, highly influenced by Gamma Ray (who has traded members with this band) and Judas Priest, was introduced on their 1998 eponymous debut. The following year found them gathering a press following when Jaws of Death garnered positive reviews from most respectable metal critics. On top of that, their European popularity flourished as power metal enjoyed moderate success in the overseas mainstream. Nuclear Fire followed in 2001, leading to their first U.S. appearances in the guise of several large metal festivals throughout the year. They returned to the studio in early 2002, recording and releasing Black Sun by the end of spring. 2004's Devil's Ground and 2005's Seven Seals saw the band expanding their fan base via a run of heavy touring, including a European and Japanese tour with Helloween, and 2007's New Religion featured a guest vocal from Epica's Simone Simons, as well as ambitious orchestral arrangements from Matz Ulmer and Mat Sinner. 2009 saw the release of the band's eighth studio long player, 16.6 (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead), followed in 2012 by a string of well-received LPs that included Unbreakable (2011), Delivering the Black (2014), and Rulebreaker (2016). ~ Bradley Torreano

Favorite group without a doubt. Took a road trip to see them in Atlanta on their Delivering the Black tour last year. Ralph killed the vocals. He has an amazing voice. Similar to John Stevens, my 7 year old daughter's favorite group is Primal Fear. We basically listen to them every night (mixing in some Maiden, Dio, Priest, & some select A7X tunes). Can't wait for the next album and North American tour.

Traded Members?? Didn't Ralf Scheepers leave Gamma Ray to form Primal Fear?

Just saw them in Atlanta (with a meet-and-gre e t ) . They really brought it. Ralph sang his a** off. All 10 studio albums + Ralph's solo album are worth owning. I am a big Maiden and Priest fan, but honestly I spend significantl y more time listening to PF than anyone else.
