PRIMAL FEAR – Metal Is Forever – The Very Best Of Primal Fear (CD)
This double CD from Primal Fear is a superb collection of their best tracks from the very beginnings of their musical journey as a band.
“Metal Is Forever – The Very Best Of Primal Fear” is a strong glimpse into what Primal Fear has achieved in their stellar career. This definitely one of the best “The Very Best Of” releases I’ve heard in a long while, and it being the very best of Primal Fear songs, it is even awesome.
You can definitely hear the musical and vocal growth and progression from their first album, aptly titled “Primal Fear” to their last album, “Seven Seals” for their former label Nuclear Blast Records. It is interesting to hear, where the band started when it came to recording and writings, taking the listener to their fifth album, “Seven Seals”. Primal Fear got better with each and every release, but also their studio production and sound became a big part of the band’s sheer, thunderous heavy metal style.
Some of the cult classics from this German group are: “Chainbreaker”, “Seven Seals”, “Nuclear Fire”, “Armageddon”, “Evil Spell”, “Running In The Dust” and “Tears Of Rage”.
This double Digipac CD set also features a second disc of covers from Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Accept, Iron Maiden and a few others. It is pretty interesting to hear how well these guys have paid tribute to their influences by covering their songs.
This release is also numbered, with a limited run of 2000 copies worldwide, so calling the diehard Primal Fear fans, you definitely want to get your paws on this while it still exist. Highly worth your time, need I say more? [Metal Mind Productions] Sarjoo Devani
