This album starts off with one of the coolest metal songs ever with heavy head banging riffing, agressive power metal vocals, a catchy solo and yes...an orchestra!! Even the outro is cool displaying Ralf's vocal power. The album charges on with "Rollercoaster" and then the excellent title ballad.
Each song has its on speciality, with not one bad track, you won't regret getting this NOW!

The new drummer replacing Klaus is even better (expect Nick Barker style drum rolls and pace). Check out "Evil Spell".
My only complaint is that the album just does'nt have that instant classic feel about it 'cos the production quality is'nt as gritty like on "Black Sun".

If you like Priest and the more recent style of heavy/power metal bands like HammerFall and Dream Evil then check this out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their finest CD to date 22 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
Like others I gave Primal Fear a go because I thought that singer Ralf Scheepers was amazing in Gamma Ray - Indeed, I understand he almost got the job in Judas Priest when Rob Halford left. Should you ever hear Gamma Ray's live version of the Priest standard "Exciter" then Scheepers will have sold himself already. Black Sun is regarded as Primal Fear's highlight, and indeed its great album worthy of many stars. Its nowhere near as good as this one. Seven Seals is amazing - Fast and heavy with great melodies and catchy choruses, Scheepers is outstanding as ever. You liked early Helloween, then you liked Gamma Ray - Now its time to switch allegiance once again. Its even better than the latest Dragonforce CD (Inhuman Rampage). You need to hear this.

5.0 out of 5 stars RAARRR!! BATTLE METAL!!! 12 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Awesome!
This is just what I was looking for after hearing evil spell from a free CD. The sound is fast paced, technical and well worth a listen if youre fans of hammerfall, manowar and stratovarius.
I give it 5 stars as it sheds new light in an ever changing world of heavy metal!
The lyrics are cheesy, the riffs superb, the drumming insane at times. I love it!
If you have any taste in heavy metal you will buy this album and wont regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars First time for everything... 3 Feb 2006
By John. N - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Primal Fear is one of those bands if I the opportunity of experiencing their music before immersing myself in the work a slew of other European metal outfits, I probably held a higher reguard for their work. But by the time my friend did introduce me to Primal Fear, I wasn't exactly bowled over in any shape or form. In fact, before I ever heard Devil's Ground, the only place I knew singer Ralph Scheepers from was Gamma Ray's 1993 album "Insanity & Genius" (a classic if there ever was one).

Despite the above, I had heard from some of my friends that Seven Seals differed from the band's previous outings, and I decided to give it a try. I must say I'm glad I did, because while their other albums were good, the songs never infiltrated cerebral cortex as much as this batch of songs does. Songs such as "Seven Seals" ooze so much class, it isn't even funny. The savagely awesome "Evil Spell" sends chills down my spine with it's psychotic drumming and "In Memory of You" is a hauntingly beautiful ballad that closes the album in pure style.

Still, Seven Seals may come to disappoint some hard core Primal Fear fans who believe speed and power is everything. The album is definitely more symphonic than anything the band has ever done before, but the songs still do contain a very respectable amount of heavyness and it evens out. Those who aren't overly critical of said band sticking exclusively to their roots are likely the ones to get the most out of Seven Seals.

As a final note, I must say I do like how the ideas behind Seven Seals somewhat harkens back to Helloween's Keeper of the Seven Keys 1 & 2. In a way, while not being the same type of music, it somewhat pays tribute to those great albums without it seeming like a sorry attempt at cashing in (a.k.a Helloween's Keeper of the Seven Keys Part III: The Legacy ~ seriously, what where they thinking!?)

So, in closing, I would recommend anyone with an interest in this genre of music to check out Seven Seals, especially those who found that the band's later works were not their cup of tea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Primal Fear Do Not Disappoint... 22 Oct 2005
By B. DiMolfetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I consider myself an experienced PF fan. I have every release and I have seen them live in Europe as well.

I compare it to Devil's Ground only because this is the second straight release with the latest lineup. I like this one better than Devil's Ground. Although there are more "goth-like" effects, it doesn't sound as "tinny". Everything seems to be in place, thanks to the production work of Charlie Bauernfeind, who also backed Hammerfall on Chapter V. It's more bottom heavy, and things seem very well defined.

My criteria for acceptance of any performance is the following:

1. It rocks if I can put it on while cleaning the bathroom without having to dry my hands to change it

2. It rocks if I can strap it on my arm for a 5-mile run and it feeds my innner passion such that the 60 minutes flies by effortlessly (which still happens whenever I execute this highly productive ritual with my Iron Maiden playlist - 'Where Eagles Dare' is my top choice for "Best Runner's Tune").

3. It rocks if I can play it loud in my car sitting at a stop light and I can look around feeling proud about my choice.

Seven Seals passes all of these tests.

I would have done 5 *'s, but the title track is not the 10-minute high flying batttle of epic proportions that I expected it to be - perhaps I need to listen to it a bit more and have it sink in and to realize that it is a ballad-like 4 minute'ish effort instead (it is not a bad song, just not what I expected). Yes, in a way I guess I was looking for the second coming of 7th Son...

Regardless of this, it is very, very good. Invest in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crushing, epic, metal anthems! 22 July 2006
By Russroom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If it was 1987 these guys would be the biggest band in the world, and I mean that in the best way, as in when METAL was king. This album is as good if not better then the Black Sun album, which was awesome. There is no filler material here, every song is a keeper. Brutal, pounding metal with plenty of speed and power.

If you like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, or Testament, buy this album. This band remains one of the brightest lights in the metal world.

4.0 out of 5 stars They continue to shell out good material with this album.. 27 July 2006
By Rob Skinner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Where to start this review? Hmmm..well let's start with those who aren't familiar with Primal Fear. Primal Fear are primarily a mixture between heavy metal and power metal (some could argue power metal is heavy metal but lets not go there). Their vocalist Ralf Scheepers sounds unbelieveably similiar to Rob Halford so comparisons to Judas Priest are very inevitable. He even tried out for Priest i believe and lost out to 'Ripper' Owens. I'm glad he didn't get the gig really because if he did Primal Fear wouldn't exist which would be a tragedy! Anyway Primal Fear in my opinion really resurrect the heavy metal sound that was popular in the late '70s and '80s.

Onto the album then. I must start off and say this is not Primal Fear's best release but that doesn't mean it is bad at all just not their best (hence the 4 stars). Anyway standout tracks for me are 'Demons and Angels', 'Immortal Ones', 'In Memory', 'Diabolus', 'Evil Spell' and 'All For One'. Personally i really don't like 'Rollercoaster' it's just a horrible riff in my mind lol. 'Question of Honour' is OK and so is 'Carniwar'. Anyway onto the reasons. For me songs like 'Evil Spell', 'Immortal Ones' and 'All for One' are just damn catchy songs with those great crunchy and chugging riffs. I still think they should have started this album with 'All for One' because it would grab the listener's attention straight off, that riff is easily the most headbangable riff in history and you'll know which one i mean when you hear it! Songs like 'Demons and Angels' and 'Diabolus' are heavy power metal rockers basically with 'Diabolus' sort of being a bit epic. 'In Memory' is a touching ballad with nice solid guitar work to ensure it works well. The instruments on this album are truly all played very well and there are no complaints from me.

The reason i don't think this album is their best is mainly cause some of the songs are much slower paced and there's more power metal touches here than on previous releases such as choirs and keyboard fills. My favorite releases from them are 'Nuclear Fire' and 'Jaws of Death' which are worth checking out if you thoroughly enjoy this album as those albums will really take you back to the days when heavy metal reigned supreme. But this latest release by Primal Fear still shows them on impeccable form and heralds the message that heavy metal is still reigning with avengeance. Hope that was helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Primal Fear Finally Have Their Own Sound! 28 Oct 2005
By MetalMarc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the album I was hoping Primal Fear would make. Finally these talented musicians have stopped trying to sound like Judas Preist and just wrote some amazing metal songs!

Don't get me wrong, I have always liked Primal Fear. They have always been great songwriters and exeptionally talented musicians. But they had a tendancy to sound a bit cheesy at times as well as rely too much on their Judus Preist influence, preventing them from crafting their own sound and getting the credibility they deserve.

The Preist influence has not completely disappeared thankfully, it's still there, but it's mixed in with some other current acts such as Rage, Tad Morose, Iced Earth, and Brainstorm. This album is much more serious and mature. Even the art work may reflect that. A sound Primal Fear was moving toward on 'Devil's Ground' with songs like 'Visions of Fate' and 'The Healer', while at the same time being held back by cheesy songs such as 'Metal is Forever' and 'In Metal'.

There are other aspects helping this album's mature sound as well. The guitars are tuned lower and sound more modern. The production of this album is just world class. As thick and heavy as you can get while still remaining well balanced and clear. Though sometimes the leads are a little low in the mix. Ralf's vocals are also less Halford like too. He seems to be singing with his own voice instead of trying to sound like a Halford impersonator. Wise decision too because Ralf has a stellar voice that can make an impact in the metal world on it's own merit.

The new songs are all finely detailed and well written. Some string and keyboard orchestrations are even carefully worked into some songs very nicely. I won't go into every song in detail as almost every song on this album is very good, making it a very consistent listening experience throughout. However I do think that the first 3 songs are the very best, while 'Question of Honour' is the only track I really didn't care for. Surprisingly the bonus track Union is really good too.

In conclusion, I feel this is Primal Fear's best and most mature work yet! Long time Primal Fear fans won't be dissapointed and the band should attract some new fans as well. My top 5 for 2005 is really getting crowded because this album definately is on that list!

P.S. Did I forget to mention how killer Randy Black's drum work is?
