Jump Metal recently conducted an interview with vocalist Ralf Scheepers of German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
PRIMAL FEAR in July entered the studio to begin laying down drums for its next studio album for an early 2014 release via Frontiers Records. 12 songs were recorded, including “two epic songs, one guitar ballad, and nine crushing metal songs with all the trademarks you know and love to hear from PRIMAL FEAR,” according to the band. The CD was engineered by Achim Köhler (EDGUY, MASTERPLAN) and is being produced by PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner. Mixing duties are being handled this month by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT) at Hansen Studios in Denmark.
Frontiers and PRIMAL FEAR in January announced that they have renewed their partnership for another multi-album deal, which will include two more studio releases and one live CD and DVD.
PRIMAL FEAR‘s latest album, “Unbreakable”, sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 44 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
