Matt Sinner comments: “The special thing about ‘Hear Me Calling’ is, that we are combining the vibes of the first PF albums with the new PRIMAL FEAR of 2020. It’s great because Tom was a part of the song-writing and the basis of the song was made in my studio. Ralf made the lyrics, perfectly interpreting all the emotions and with a really strong chorus. Far away from home, in a shady plane somewhere between Peru and Bolivia, thinking about home ….. a strong combination of powerful guitar riffs, awesome melodies, groove, and a great hook!”
“‘I Am Alive’ is the opening track of the new album and a statement in these rough times. Between the speed of the double bass drumming plus grooves and fast guitar riffs, is one of the best PRIMAL FEAR hooks ever. You can look forward to a real banger of a song that is representative of our new album – Metal Commando.“, comments bassist and producer Mat Sinner.

“I don’t want to throw around superlatives, but each of us went to their utmost limits and we are all very happy with the sound and song material. It’s pretty safe to say that this is a top album and maybe even our strongest record to date“, comments bassist and producer Mat Sinner. “It’s the perfect mix between our origins and our current style, a perfect balance and all band members did an awesome job playing and recording it. For me, ‘Metal Commando’ is the right album at the right time!“.
