"It's official," announces PRIMAL FEAR. "We will start with the recordings of the new album tomorrow (May 21st) at Magnus Karlsson's Stuntguitar Studios in Sweden. Updates on the album and song titles, artwork, videos, touring and more soon."
After collecting more than 30 song ideas for the new album, Primal Fear stripped the list down to 12 tracks. An early 2014 release date is expected via Frontiers Records.
Primal Fear frontman Ralf Scheepers has promised, "We will top the last one!"
As previously reported, Frontiers Records and Primal Fear have renewed their partnership for another multi album deal which will include two more studio albums and one further Live CD and DVD.
Primal Fear bass player, songwriter and producer Mat Sinner said: "We're very excited about the final news that we will renew our contract with Frontiers Records for some more albums. My personal thanks go out to Serafino and Mario for their patience to deal with me. The band is very happy to continue with Frontiers Records after the release of our worldwide most successful album Unbreakable and their great work. We plan to enter the recording studio during the summer to record a new, ass kicking, pure metal album!"
Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino added: "Working with Mat, Ralf and the other guys from Primal Fear is truly a professional delight. Not only they are among some of the true living talents of heavy metal music, but also outstanding professionals who live up to their word and to the expectations that all the fans have from them. Long Live Primal Fear!"
