PRIMAL FEAR always was one of the few metal acts to equally please headbangers and melodic hard rockers. I really dig their sense of melody and aptly choruses in their music. The band is ready to release their ninth studio album “Unbreakable” on January 20th 2012 in Europe and January 24th in North America.

 

“Unbreakable” will be anticipated by the digital only release of the single “Bad Guys Wear Black”, also including the track “Metal Nation” (in an exclusive single mix) on December 5th 2011. The new album promises a well-balanced 'back to the roots' sound and style. “Bad Guys Wear Black” is a rhythm paced melodic metal anthem, whilst “Metal Nation”, despite the title, has a melodic hard rock vibe that reminds you the band's more accessible stuff from the late nineties.

 

Magnus Karlsson (Allen/Lande, Kiske/Somerville) and Alex Beyrodt (Sinner) are worldwide respected guitarists, Ralf Scheepers vocal performance shines bright, and what can go wrong if you’re backed by one of the best rhythm sections in metal with Randy Black and the omnipresent Mat Sinner?

Plus backing vocals by the 'Fantastic Four': Ralf Scheepers, Mat Sinner, Erik Martensson (Toby Hitchcock, W.E.T.) and Oliver Hartmann.

I miss that Naumann/Leibing twin attack.This one better go the distance....

 

Jaws of Death was great with those two but so was the Leibing/Wolter duo on Nuclear Fire and Black Sun! Randy Black's drumming does bury Klaus Sperling and I wonder how better those early releases would of been with Black behind the drum stool.

Not ultra-impressed with the new single. A good headbanging tune but if this what defines the whole album, then I'm afraid it's gonna be a 70%-75% type of album.

 

Expect something more and hopefully they have that something behind their sleeve

I'm almost through with my first spin and I have to say as a fan since 1999 I'm pretty impressed. The band kind of lost it's way with adding symphonic pieces on the New Religion disc and almost found it's way back on "16.6" release but with the new "Unbreakable" almost finds them going all the way back. There's a nice mix of the old school metal from the early albums as well as some of the melody that found it's way onto "Nuclear Fire" and "Black Sun". There's also a couple of tunes that have a big Helloween style that I hadn't heard from PF before. I was concerned with all of the guitar player changes and now that Wolter, Leibing and Naumann are no longer in the band but the combo of Karlsson and Beyrodt seem to be working just fine. I think this disc would of fit nicely between the Black Sun and Devils Ground releases.

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!

    • One day to the show. Acoustic in a venue that looks like somebodies oversized front room.  Really should be a great night.
