    Primal Fear, around since 1997, and with the release of Delivering The Black they are about to drop their tenth studio album onto mankind. This begs the question whether the world really needs another Primal Fear album? The answer is sweet and simple; YES!

      What the hell does the title refer to? It could have been better, but this band is cool but I hope they do something better than Unbreakable...
    IH8Hipsters - 04.10.2013 at 02:48  
      Yeah Unbreakable wasn't their best, but it's still a good album. I will get this album when it comes out. I love these guys.
    Mountain King - 21.10.2013 at 23:17  
      16:6 and New Religion had great songs on them. One of the best bands around nowadays...
    Angelic Storm - 21.10.2013 at 23:29  
      "New Religion" was a so-so album, with the occasional great song. "16.6" was a very good album though, a return to form, and one of the band's greatest albums. "Unbreakable" was a step down from the previous album in terms of overall quality. Not a bad album, but definitely a case of treading water that one! Hopefully the new one delivers the goods.

    Rating: 8 Strong album so far!
    Rulatore - 23.01.2014 at 20:50  
    Rating: 8 So far I'm surprised. Didn't expect to enjoy this much

    I remember hearing Unbreakable, it seemed pretty boring, maybe I'll pay a visit to their older ones
    Angelic Storm - 23.01.2014 at 23:28  
      4 songs in right now, and if the rest of the album continues in this vein of quality, it might actually be their best album yet! But I think it's safe to say, this album smokes "Unbreakable"!

    Rating: 8 Very good album,I always liked this band,german metal in general is over the top.
    Zaph - 24.01.2014 at 12:45  
      I should give this band another try I guess.
    EDIT: Nope, I shouldn't have.

    Rating: 10 Fuck me - this is a bit good.......... Tremendous, love it.

      Rebel Faction is sick, and the drumming on that track is beyond great. Liked this band since I first heard them but I recently started to listen to all their songs. They have some pretty amazing hidden gems in every album and now I'm really excited for this one...

    Rating: 7 I'm joining the choir here, what a fine album this is! The first few songs are really solid, but then they strike a total killstreak from the title-track (#5) and all the way to the end. "Inseminoid" is a perfect pure power metal song if there ever was one! "One Night In December" is a long atmospheric piece and probably the most epic one. "Road To Asylum" has that instantly lovable chorus, and the aforementioned title-track is just smashing away at you... Really, the whole album is spectacular and I'd say slightly stronger than Unbreakable (which was already a great album imo).

    Rating: 8 I knew that this album would be good, but I did not expect this good of an effort. Kudos to these guys

    Rating: 10 Amazing Album
    Silent Jay - 04.02.2014 at 15:13  
      I've given it a listen and think its much better than their last few albums at least. Not sure on the Judas-Bon-Priest-Jovi sound I can't help but feel they have but maybe it'll grow on me.

    I thought the same thing - it's exactly the kind of the power metal that I dislike.

    Rating: 9 This is definitely one of the best Primal Fear albums of all time. In fact , I would so far venture to say that this is indeed their best and most consistent album till date.

    All the songs are good here and I am yet to skip a track while listening to this album. Love the crunch of the guitars and the nasally screechy vocals . Recommend a strong buy on this album
    TrueMetalJope - 09.06.2016 at 19:25  
    Rating: 6 I'm NOT buying into the hype this album is getting. Once again there's an one killer song, this time "Inseminoid", and the rest seems just average stuff.
