Primal Fear: Angels of Mercy - Live in Germany

This is a review of the audio version of this package as the DVD/Blu-ray wasn't available for review.

I do like Primal Fear – honest, I really do. I have for a long time but I have to say that I'm decidedly lukewarm about Angels of Mercy - Live in Germany, not because it's bad, far from it but because in the audio version it's just so…unremarkable. The performances are universally good, the songs are judiciously picked from the band's greatest hits but there's something not quite right. Without delving too deeply into clichéd national stereotypes (he says before delving too deeply into national stereotypes,) everything is just a little bit too cold and clinical. Nobody expects Primal Fear to fill the gap left by the Allman Brothers Band and stretch things out to the 'nth degree but there's not much to separate this from a greatest hits album with a few words from Rolf Scheepers between the songs. Given that Metal is Forever-the Very Best of Primal Fear came out only eighteen months ago perhaps it is time to forge a new chapter in the band's history.
