After the blazing album that was Black Sun, I expected Primal Fear to improve on it as they did with their previous albums. I believe this to be due mainly to the change in the line-up. Both Klaus and Benny were lost since Black Sun. The replacements were Randy Black (Drums) and Tom Naumann (Guitars) who are both amazing musicians but I feel they could have put more of their own energy into the songs.
The album itself is not bad by any means. It starts with Metal Is Forever, a song about how great metal is (something that is essential of any cheesy power metal album). Suicide and Mania, the second and in my opinion the best, song on the album. It features the best riff on the album and a good catchy chorus. Visions of Fate also features so good guitar riffage and Ralf at his best.
The other high points of the album are The Healer, In Metal and Colony 13.
Overall I think this album is ok, not brilliant but good for any Primal Fear fan looking for a change. If you are starting out on Primal Fear I would go for Black Sun as it is some of their best work.

3 stars seems a little mean, but perhaps 4 just would be unfair.

I think that I am being fair in saying that there really is not much wrong with this, but there really are no stand out songs. It is going through the motions and just should be better. I like the album, but then again I like every other Primal Fear album I have more than this.

You get a taste from the first song really. If this was all you had ever heard you would think 1980s cheese metal done exceptionally well from a German power metal band. Nothing to hate, but nothing exceptional.

For me the best song on the album comes next then it is downhill. If you like 80s UFO or The Scorpions you will probably like this. However if you like Primal Fear pick any earlier album and it will be better.

Keeping The Art of True Metal Alive 25 Feb. 2004
By Steve Randall - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Primal Fear is a band that has taken the influences of Judas Priest,Accept and Helloween and added a few more layers of molten steel to create they're modern day yet ever so classic metal.
Devil's Ground is Primal Fears's 5th record.And other than the first,which is smokin' and was a huge surprise,it is their best.
One reason is because they've added a few new elements.Like some string sections in The Healer.An excellent track,one of their best.
Of course the majority of the record is fast and furious "Painkiller" type metal.Anyone that knows this band knows they're not breaking any new ground here.Just heads up Tradtional Metal.Though they have taken it to a better level in the studio sonically.Making crystal clear blaring recordings that just sound awesome cranked through some decent speakers!
High points on the disc for me are Wings of Desire,The Healer,Suicide & Mania,In Metal and Sacred Illusion.
And Devil's Ground itself is not even a track,it is an ominous spoken word passage about Hell that seems more like something from a Dimmu Borgir album than Primal Fear.
So if you're a fan you'll be very pleased with this CD.If you've never heard of Primal Fear but you're into bands like Priest,Accept,Gamma Ray,Dream Evil or Helloween.You should definitly check this out.

Devil's Ground/Familiar Ground 19 Dec. 2007
By Big Al - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I listen to Primal Fear I hear mostly Judas Priest with elements of Halford, Iron Maiden and maybe a little Dio thrown in there as well. I love all those bands so to me that is not a bad thing at all. They are definitely old school power metal with some speed metal thrown in for good measure. I just wish there were more bands today like Primal Fear that played this style of metal. My personal favorites on this disc are Suicide and Mania, Visions of Hate, Sea of Flames, and Heart of Brave. I'm not all that crazy about metal anthems. I don't think its necessary to sing about the greatness of heavy metal. You either think its great or don't. That being said, as metal anthems go, Metal is Forever is better than most. Track 12 with the spoken message about hell doesn't really add anything to the album but doesn't necessarily take anything away either. Even though I would have liked to see how great Ralf Scheepers would have been with Priest, in a way I'm glad he didn't get the job. Otherwise we might not have Primal Fear. Sometimes things happen for a reason. Overall a solid effort definitely worth picking up.

Five albums in, and these guys have put out another complete metal album. I've been a fan since the first album and I know that when a new one is released (five in 6 years!) I will not be disappointed. If you in any way call yourself a fan of the genre of heavy metal and you don't own this or any other of their albums, go break out your George Michael "Faith" c.d.s. The only other band out there right now that is this consistent is HammerFall. I'ts almost impossible to choose one of Primal's albums from my collection now because they are all excellent. A blind purchase for anyone with any metal taste. Why this band isn't bigger in the U.S. is a travesty. Oh, I know why, because everyone's busy listening to Puddle of Dung....Peace.

Just a great rocking album. 21 July 2005
By K. A. Nagel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Its just awesomely solid.

Metal is Forever is a great openee. Suicide and Mania is just plain sick, this one gets the repeat on my player alot. Straight ahead in your face riff and the chorus is just so..... metal. The Healer, Suicide and Mania, Colony 13, and SoulChaser are the best songs on the cd. But all are above average solid metal butt kicking. Heart Of A Brave has an excellent chorus as wel. While I dont think this one is as melodic as Black Sun which i love, it still gets more player time. i didnt think Sacred illusion was the best song as others have stated but each his own. Sea Of Flames is so Judas Priest in its smash your face in kinda way that its sick.

Breaking new ground for "Primal Fear" !! 20 April 2011
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Devil's Ground" is the 5th studio album by German melodic/power metal band "Primal Fear" originally released in 2004. The line up features founding members singer extraordinaire, Ralf Scheepers, bassist Matt Sinner, established guitarist Stefan Leibing, new entry Canadian drummer Randy Black (ex-"Annihilator") while also marking the return of original guitarist Tom Newman.

"Devil's Ground" was conceived and recorded in the process of pushing the band's creativity into new (to the members) musical territories, a vision that would also be applied on the following two albums "Seven Seals" and "New Religion". Essentially, "Devil's Ground" is the established heavy/melodic style that "Fear" forged during the late 90s featuring razor-sharp riffs, blinding lead guitar, high pitched vocal attack, devastating rhythm section, all under the catchiest melodies and largest choruses' one could ask for. So songs like "Suicide and Mania", "In metal" and "Heart of A brave" are prime demonstration of their sound; still they go a few steps further by introducing the mid tempo-symphonic epic "The healer", one of their lengthiest tunes featuring probably the longest chorus the band has ever written. In addition the lyrical themes shift considerably towards religion and spiritualism delivering some rather agonizing moments on songs like "Suicide and mania" and "Colony 13". "Devil's ground" spawned a new "Primal Fear" hit song, "Metal is forever" and was the first album to be supported by two promo videos for "Metal is forever" and "The healer".

Overall "Devil's Ground" stands as another stellar addition to the band's catalogue that took the first step in a course that would later deliver albums like "Seven Seals"(2005) and the monumental "New religion"(2007). A guarnateed purhcase for anyone who enjoyed "New Religion".
