Press release from Frontiers Music:

 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the new PRIMAL FEAR studio album “Rulebreaker” on January 29, 2016! Available in CD, deluxe CD/DVD and – in collaboration with Soulfood Music in Germany – also on vinyl and a special super-limited vinyl edition version featuring an eagle head on the vinyl, “Rulebreaker” combines the strongest PRIMAL FEAR moments ever, with a well-balanced typical PRIMAL FEAR trademark riff-vibe, crushing songs and some very ambitious musical journeys.

Singer Ralf Scheepers says: “We have so much energy, fantastic melodies and a hell of a drum groove on each and every song, there is no doubt that the fans will love it as much as I do! And again we have achieved to combine bombastic and atmospheric orchestral sounds with soaring heavy metal riffs and licks, together with ear splitting screams and also emotional sequences. We have kept the promise of being a heavy metal band with all the trademarks for which people love Primal Fear“.

After the massive “Delivering The Black” world tour, PRIMAL FEAR started the songwriting in spring 2015 and recorded at Hansen Studios in Denmark, with producer Mat Sinner and engineer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe). Mat Sinner adds: “We learnt a lot during the Delivering The Black sessions and the following world tour. We tried to put this know-how and all the positive energy into the songs and production of “Rulebreaker. Working the second time with Jacob Hansen and even record in his studio, gave another dimension to our sound, plus the recording comeback of founding member Tom Naumann was the right move”.

Classic and ultra-fresh Primal Fear riff-rockers like the album opener “Angels Of Mercy,” or the groove monsters “The End Is Near” and “Bullets And Tears” hit the bulls-eye from the beginning - just like the untamed speed killer “In Metal We Trust” and the metal anthem and title track “Rulebreaker”. The melodic and unique ballad “The Sky Is Burning” shows a different side of PRIMAL FEAR with a new vibe and a monster chorus. And of course, PRIMAL FEAR added again a 11-minute plus Prog Metal tour de force entitled “We Walk Without Fear”, spiced with big orchestral arrangements and complex sound designs.

PRIMAL FEAR are about to release what is definitely their strongest album ever: “RULEBREAKER”. Don’t miss the German Metal Commando on their worldwide tour in 2016!

Sounds like Ralf is taking a bit of a dig at former drummer, Randy Black, who left the band because of "unreconcilable differences" between he and Scheepers.

Typical killer Primal Fear. Although Jovino is no Randy Black, it still sounds as heavy as ever. Nice that they brought back Tom Naumann as a permanant member again after he filled in for Karlsson on the last tour. I hope they hit Vancouver again on the upcoming tour - I'll definitely be there for that.

Always sucker for a Tommy Naumann release + bald macho's vox. In their previous one they composed my favorite track from their repertoire.

 

If only they abolished those priesty riffs...

I just found out they're playing in Vancouver on May 9th, but I'm definitely rethinking attending. If they were playing at The Venue in downtown Vancouver again, I'd be there in a heartbeat, but they're booked in at the Rickshaw Theater in skid row. There's no effing way I'm taking my son into that area at night - not unless I want to return to my car to find it broken into after the show lets out at 11:30, or risk being accosted on the streets in the area. It's a damn shame, too 'cause I was looking forward to seeing the triple guitar attack of Karlsson, Beyrodt and Naumann.

Where's the Rickshaw? Pretty much all the shows I go to are on Granville. I don't think I've ever had to stray from there. Back in the day I would see shows at the Media Club, or at the Biltmore, but those places haven't been booking anyone worth seeing in a long minute.

 

Oh, and Hard Rock Casino has been good, too.

Right around Main on East Hastings. 245 East Hastings to be exact. Scary looking area. You can see scores of homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks right across from the venue. Addicts everywhere, needles all over the street. I've driven the work truck through there a few times, and actually walked through it once, but that was daytime. I doubt I'd go in there at night without a canister of pepper spray handy. It aint Escape From New York terrifying, but it's close.

Bummer their not doing a Portland Oregon show. That Seattle El Corazon show would be cool as that club holds about 100 people and the stage is a whole two feet off the ground one thing I miss about living up North. It's a dive but I've seen a slew of great bands there, Lizzy Bordon, Mike Monroe, Saigon Kick...

Yeah, El Corazon is a cool club, but also in shady area.

The owner Dana is a pretty cool guy and a competent drummer. I like the old name prior to his ownership, The Offramp. Which part and parcel to its location was very befitting.

Yeah, following the directions on Googlemaps was useless. I was driving all over the place trying to find it. I'd like to think I know Seattle fairly well, but it wasn't until I drove over the overpass and saw I passed it immediately once I came off the offramp.
