Primal Fear

Primal Fear

Primal Fear is a German power metal/heavy metal band formed in 1997 by Ralf Scheepers (Vocals/Ex-Gamma Ray, ex-Tyran` Pace), Mat Sinner ( Bass and Vocals/Sinner), Stefan Leibing and Tom Naumann (Guitars). Their style is a heavy power metal sound with the Halford-esque vocals of Ralf Scheepers that give a feeling of Judas Priest`s Painkiller era. Scheepers formed the band after he was not hired as Rob Halford`s replacement in Judas Priest, a job for which he was a finalist, that went to Tim "Ripper" Owens.
