PRIMAL FEAR: First Studio Video Report Posted Online

German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR have posted the first in a series of video reports documenting the recording sessions for the band's new album, "16.6: (Before The Devil Knows You're Dead)". Watch it below (in German, with English subtitles).

"16.6: (Before The Devil Knows You're Dead)" was recorded at House Of Music studios in Winterbach, Germany with Dennis Ward and Achim Köhler. The CD, which is due in May via Frontiers Records, marks the group's first release with guitarist Magnus Karlsson (ALLEN/LANDE, STARBREAKER), who replaced Stefan Leibing last year. Returning guitarist Henny Wolter and Karlsson participated in the songwriting and pre-production, which took place at Karlsson's Stuntguitar Studio in Sweden. The band spent four weeks at House Of Music recording the effort, which was mastered by Ted Jensen at the Sterling Sound in New York City.

PRIMAL FEAR will return to Atlanta, Georgia to co-headline this year's ProgPower USA showcase on September 10 alongside VANDEN PLAS. PRIMAL FEAR says, "We're working on more East Coast shows from Florida to New York. We're [also] working on a tour in South America for August and the first show of the European tour is confirmed. The Metalfest at JBs in Dudley, U.K. [on September 25-27] will be part of the European tour 2009!"


PRIMAL FEAR's last album, "New Religion", in 2007 landed on the Swedish chart at No. 67. It also entered the German chart at No. 60. The CD was released in the U.S. on January 29, 2008 via Locomotive/Ryko. Guest musicians on the album include Kai Hansen (GAMMA RAY, ex-HELLOWEEN) and Simone Simons (EPICA).
