Primal Fear
Primal Fear
[Nuclear Blast]

So you may be wondering what I’m doing reviewing an album that is so melody driven, how can this album be any good? Well, to be perfectly blunt, anyone who says melody and heaviness do not mix is a fool, because this album is one of the heaviest albums I have heard in a long time.

“Primal Fear” kicks off with an eerie intro, then kicks right into “Chainbreaker” a classic smash you face rocker. “Formula One” ups the pace, and “Battalions Of Hate” is another classic killer. “Primal Fear” is basically about 50% Priest, and 50% Accept. Ralf Scheepers is a phenomenal vocalist who rips your face off with his powerful screams. Guitar sounds are good on this album, but the drums sound a little weak from time to time.

For those of you who are interested in expanding your simple mind into the area of melodic Metal, pick this one up.
