Rating: 8,5/10


Since their inception in 1998, Primal Fear has built up a solid live reputation. After the release of their most recent studio effort ‘Rulebreaker’ early 2016, they started the next world tour. For the first time also Australia was covered. Now they release the Stuttgart show on CD/DVD/blu-ray. Those who have a liking for energetic speed/power metal with an epic tinge cannot go wrong with this German band. The set list has no surprises, but does not disappoint either. It’s exactly what you want to hear. There is a nice balance between the sturdy speed moments such as ‘Rulebreaker’, ‘In Metal We Trust’ and ‘Nuclear Fire’ and on the other side the longer, epic songs. Occluding track ‘Fighting The Darkness’ might be an inevitable classic in this respect. We could not see the images on DVD, that was not included in our promo package, but we can guess that it is all done to a turn in Teutonic manner. Veteran guitarist/producer Mat Sinner was behind the knops. It seems there is quite a lot of bonus material on the DVD, like video clips, a documentary and footage of another show. Well, fans of the younger version of Judas Priest can purchase this blindly.


Primal Fear heeft sinds het ontstaan in 1998 een stevige live reputatie opgebouwd. Ook na de release van hun meest recente studioalbum ‘Rulebreaker’ begin 2016, startten ze traditiegetrouw weer een wereldtournee, die hen trouwens voor de eerste keer in Australië bracht. Nu brengt men de show in Stuttgart uit op cd/dvd/blu-ray. Wie houdt van stevige speed/power metal met een episch randje, zit nooit verkeerd bij deze Duitse band. De setlist is dan ook zonder verrassingen, maar puik. Er is een mooi evenwicht tussen de gebalde speedmomenten als ‘Rulebreaker’, ‘In Metal We Trust’ en ‘Nuclear Fire’ en anderzijds de langere, epische songs, waarvan afsluiter ‘Fighting The Darkness’ natuurlijk de onmisbare klassieker is. De beelden hoorden niet tot ons promopakket, maar we kunnen er vanuit gaan dat alles met Duitse degelijkheid in geluid en beeld is vervat, zeker met een gitarist/producer als veteraan Mat Sinner achter de knoppen. Men spreekt van heel wat bonusmateriaal en videoclips op de dvd, dus fans van de jongere versie van Judas Priest mogen zonder reserve toehappen.
