Primal Fear Unleashes “The Best Of Fear”

By Andrew Catania

Primal Fear is one of the best acts of metal today.  There “Best Of Fear” features songs from there Frontiers years from 2006 to present.

The first disc is 16 songs that are pure heavy rock. There are four new songs for fans who always want something new and a fantastic version of Heart’sIf Looks Could Kill.” Not an obvious choice for Primal Fear to perform although they own it! “Area 16”, “Predator” and “Thrill Of Speed” are straight ahead metal rockers which sit comfortably on the first disc.

Disc two starts with an appearance from Simone Simons (Epica). Her soaring vocals were adding an extra layer to the brilliant “Everytime It Rains.”   Much of the second disc is where Primal Fear are in epic mode. Once again they call upon a friend in the shape of Liv Kristine (Ex Leave’s Eyes) on the excellent “Born With A Broken Heart.” Primal Fear are at their very best when pushing the boundaries of power metal, and disc two is evidence of that.

The “Best Of Fear”  is an excellent collection of songs for the first time listener or a lifelong fan of the band.  9/10 Rating  You can order here
