PRIMAL FEAR Premieres Lyric Video For Epic New Track “Cancel Culture”

Primal Fear Band Members

German metal commandos PRIMAL FEAR will release their new album, “Code Red”, this Friday (September 1st) through Atomic Fire. In advance of the record’s officially unveiling, the band offers up a final appetizer with “Cancel Culture.”Accompanied by a captivating lyric video created by Ingo Spörl of Hard Media, the track is themed around a topic that has been heavily discussed in recent years.

Producer/bassist Mat Sinner comments, “There are countries where you just disappear if you speak your mind. These are intolerable conditions. But I’m not backing down. I’ve always been a rebel; I don’t want to conform. And I don’t have to play in certain countries either. It’s that simple.”

Adds frontman Ralf Scheepers“The way the culture of having discussions with each other has gone down the drain has become unbearable. People tend to have no more respect for each other and that’s a dangerous development and perspective. It’s the same sad development with all these ‘keyboard warriors’ out there who hide behind a made up user name to release their hate, jealousy, or frustration. I will never take this as a ‘Welcome to the Internet’ invitation; it’s simply a no go!”

“Code Red” will be available as a digipak CD, 2xLP in multiple color variants, and digitally. Pre-order it HERE.

Recorded in Germany at Sebastian “Basi” Roeder‘s Backyard Studios, with the helping hands of Scheepers as well as Mitch Kunz“Code Red” was produced by bassist Mat Sinner and co-produced by Scheepers and guitarist Tom Naumann. Longtime PRIMAL FEAR collaborator Jacob Hansen once again took care of mixing and mastering at his own Hansen Studios in Denmark. Additionally, Stan W. Decker, who created previous works for the band, including 2017’s “Angels Of Mercy – Live In Germany”, 2018’s “Apocalypse”and 2021’s “I Will Be Gone”, provided the record’s magnificent artwork.

Sinner previously stated about the album: “The world is in a state of emergency; one catastrophe follows another. ‘Code Red’ is our statement about the present and the title of our upcoming 14th studio album, which will be released directly at the tour start on September 1st. According to its title, it will be a heavy, powerful and uncompromising record — 110% PRIMAL FEAR!”

PRIMAL FEAR‘s 13th studio album, “Metal Commando”, was released in July 2020 via Nuclear Blast. The LP was produced by Sinner and mixed by Jacob Hansen. Formed by Sinner in 1997 as an outlet for vocalist Ralf Scheepers(who had left GAMMA RAY and was a rumored candidate for the then-open JUDAS PRIEST vocal spot, but was considering early retirement from metal), PRIMAL FEAR has emerged as one of the most consistent European metal bands, rarely straying from its core PRIEST-styled power metal sound.
