Primal Fear is the debut studio album by the German power metal band Primal Fear, released in 1998. The album was re-issued in 2005 by Nuclear Blast in a multibox containing the 1999 album Jaws of Death. Ralf Scheepers – vocals. Tom Naumann – guitars, keyboards. Mat Sinner – bass guitar, keyboards, backing vocals. Klaus Sperling – drums. Additional musicians. Kai Hansen – lead guitars on "Formula One", "Dollars" and "Speedking". Frank Roessler – keyboards (additional).
Another great thing about this album is the sound effects and intro, Jaws of Death. Nicely performed and makes a clear distinct jump into a fast kick ass song! Even the bass and drums stand out, in there own glory (best seen on the song Church of Blood). I see no reason why fans of power metal should not own this album. It is probably Primal Fears best, and all in all, a nice piece of metal. I recommend it to power metal fans, if you don't like power metal, you may not care for it.
Primal Fear Final Embrace.
Album (Studio full-length).
Well, Primal Fear's first debut 'self-titled' album was what some people thought that Judas Priest should have done instead of "Jugulator". It sounded very Judas "Painkiller" Priesty. After the international success of their self titled 1998 debut album, "Primal Fear" entered the studio in 1999 to record their follow up album "Jaws of Death". The existing line up of Ralf Scheepers (v), Mat Sinner (b), Tom Newman (g) and Klaus Sperling (d) are joined in the recordings by touring guitarist Stefan Leibing, becoming a full time member of the band.
