PRIMAL FEAR’s ‘Unbreakable’ Cracks German Top 40

“Unbreakable”, the new album from German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR, has entered the Media Control chart in the band’s home country at position No. 31. The group’s previous CD, 2009’s “16.6 (Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead)” , opened at No. 46, while 2007’s “New Religion”premiered at No. 60.

Released on January 24, 2012 in the U.S. via Frontiers Records, “Unbreakable” was tracked in part at House Of Music studios in Winterbach, Germany with producer/bassist Mat Sinner and engineer Achim Köhler (EDGUY, MASTERPLAN).

According to a press release, “Unbreakable” “combines the skills of the strongest PRIMAL FEAR lineup ever with a well-balanced ‘back-to-the-roots” vibe and an ambitious learning process during their longest tour so far. Classic and ultra-fresh PRIMAL FEAR riff-rockers like ‘Strike’, ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ or the high-speed track ‘And There Was Silence’ will hit the bulls-eye, like the rhythm paced metal anthem, first single and new video clip ‘Bad Guys Wear Black’. Less experiments, more rock! But there will be a nine-minute epic journey with a lot prog approach named ‘Where Angels Die’, a classic wonderful ballad ‘Born Again’ and the melodic power bomb ‘Metal Nation’.”

Commented singer Ralf Scheepers: “The plan was to record an album for the fans with rough metal riffs, screaming vocals and good melodies …and finally it became a monster — a tough ‘bang-your-head’ metal album called ‘Unbreakable’.”
