PRIMAL FEAR Rejoined By Guitarist HENNY WOLTER

May 23, 2007

German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR have issued the following update:

"Yes, after a long discussion about the future of PRIMAL FEAR, we've decided to bring Henny Wolter back to the band. After a four-year break, Henny takes over the guitar duties together with Stefan Leibing, who played most of the guitars on the new album 'New Religion'. We decided against a brand new face, because Henny is back ready and smoking.

"Henny's departure four years ago was in a very friendly way and the guys stayed in contact during his abscence. Henny did a fantastic job on the new PRIMAL FEAR recordings and the SINNER tour. We are proud to have the riff master from Hannover back in our ranks! Henny will make his comeback with the band on the next show on June 30th in Germany. Welcome Back, Henny!"
