Primal Fear Return To Nuclear Blast

Primal Fear have announced their return to Nuclear Blast. With this news, the group have also announced that they will be releasing a new limited edition 7″, titled “Crucify Me,” on September 28. It will include the title track, along with a live version of “Nuclear Fire.”

Founding member of the band Mat Sinner said the following:

“We are coming home to the No. 1 metal label and we‘re really looking forward to working with Markus Staiger and his team. All the incredibly positive reactions to the most recent PRIMAL FEAR album ‘Apocalypse’ from fans and the press have been a great motivation for us to get started with songwriting for another amazing new album, in collaboration with Nuclear Blast.”

Markus Staiger, owner of Nuclear Blast, also commented:

“We had a perfect start back then; all the metal fans were hungry for some traditional heavy metal. Together we realised six excellent albums and had a really exciting time. Even during the time after ‘Seven Seals’, the contact and amity between us and the band never ended. In the end, it was the last few PRIMAL FEAR albums that really convinced me, so we started discussing a new contract and I‘m happy that we reached an agreement quite fast and without complications. I think that PRIMAL FEAR are one of the most powerful and innovative metal bands in Europe and I love their unique, massive and heavy sound. Also, it’s really impressive how PRIMAL FEAR have never lost any of their quality and have never stopped being an awesome live act over the last 20 years.”

Vocalist Ralf Scheepers added:

“It’s time to release the beast once more with the combined strength of a record company which is motivated to the max and us musicians of PRIMAL FEAR, who stand like a wall of unity and loyalty. Back to the roots with Nuclear Blast and a heavy tune — ‘Crucify Me’!”
