German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR entered the studio this past Friday (November 28) to begin recording their new album, "16.6", due in early 2009 via Frontiers Records. Check out photos from the recording sessions at this location (free MySpace registration required to view photos).
Commented PRIMAL FEAR frontman Ralf Scheepers: "The new material sounds amazing and it's gonna be hard to pick 12-13 songs out of the 20 we have composed so far."
PRIMAL FEAR earlier in the year parted ways with guitarist Stefan Leibing and replaced him with Magnus Karlsson (ALLEN/LANDE, STARBREAKER).
The band's latest album, "New Religion", last year landed on the Swedish chart at No. 67. It also entered the German chart at No. 60. The CD was released in the U.S. on January 29 via Locomotive/Ryko. Guest musicians on the album include Kai Hansen (GAMMA RAY, ex-HELLOWEEN) and Simone Simons (EPICA).
