Staff review by
Pierre Tombale

Out of the power-metal-mass-production-facilities of Germany arose Primal Fear to record their same titled debut Album in 1998. Of course this band is member of the 'Helloween-GammaRay-Iron Saviour-family' or how do you explain the guest appearance of Kai Hansen? (The man !seems! to appear on every german power metal production). Soundlike the album is oriented towards Judas Priest's Painkiller and the 'you-know-how-to-play-GammaRay' stuff. Even the cover makes you think of Judas Priest, but rather the 'Screaming For Vengeance' album, since the picture (or better all covers) contain iron eagles that remind you of the mentioned Priest album.

Rating: 6 Decent start for Primal Fear, but honestly I don't think that the band had reached nowhere near to their maximum song writing capabilities when this album was composed. Sure, you can hear a lot of similarities here to the following albums, that would showcase some amazing heavy metal, but for this S/T album the amazingness only applies to "Tears Of Rage". I guess you could also mention the fan favorite "Chainbreaker" here, but I don't think that that song is anything more than a good generic heavy metal song, and that will become even more evident after hearing the following PF albums.
