    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...

    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.

    16:6 and New Religion had great songs on them. One of the best bands around nowadays...

    "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.

    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

    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"!

    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...

    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).

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

    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.

    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

    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.
