PRIMAL FEAR frontman Ralf Scheepers will enter a Swedish studio this summer to begin recording his debut solo album for a January 2011 release via Frontiers Records. The CD will be tracked with the help of Ralf's former GAMMA RAY bandmate and drummer extraordinaire Uli Kusch. An "impressive list of some very prominent guests is already confirmed" to appear on the as-yet-untitled album, which will feature "a killer concept and strong songs," according to Scheepers.


Seems to be a new trend happening here. Say you're recording a solo album, but then invite so many friends and special guests to perform, your role amounts to making the phone calls and setting up the studio time... :P

20-to-1 Michael Kiske shows up. I think he secretly sings on everything. :tup

That said, this ought to be pretty tasty... 8)

Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (THERION, DREAM EVIL, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, NOTRE DAME) will lay down the drum tracks on the first solo album from PRIMAL FEAR frontman Ralf Scheepers.

After Ralf and his collaborators spent the last three years writing material for the effort, the recording sessions for the CD will finally begin this coming weekend with PRIMAL FEAR's Mat Sinner playing bass on the entire LP and producing. An "impressive list of some very prominent guests" will appear on the as-yet-untitled album, which will feature "a killer concept and strong songs," according to Scheepers.

In a June 2010 interview with Metal Assault, Scheepers stated about the musical direction of his forthcoming solo CD, "It's more diverse [than PRIMAL FEAR], you can say."

He added, "In the beginning I had those ballads that we couldn't use for PRIMAL FEAR because they might be too mellow, but now we've started to write together on it. Basically, it's my ideas on it, but I have a great team, with Mat and Magnus [Karlsson; PRIMAL FEAR, STARBREAKER, LAST TRIBE] and some other members — Sander [Gommans], the ex-AFTER FOREVER guitarist, helped me a lot.

"It's a good variety — from the hardest to the softest tones."

A photo shoot with Alex Kühr for the CD's cover will take place on Tuesday in Germany.

Vocalist Ralf Scheepers of German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR was interviewed on the August 6, 2010 edition of the "Metalzone" radio show with Kostas Purevil Kyriakakis and Helena Mihailidou. During the chat, Scheepers revealed that his upcoming solo album will include two cover versions — "Saints Of Rock" from Scheepers' pre-PRIMAL FEAR band TYRAN PACE and "Before The Dawn' from JUDAS PRIEST. "'Saints Of Rock' is gonna be, of course, a little bit more modern than it was [when the original version was recorded] in 1986," he explained. "I mean, right now we have much more possibilities to make songs sound a little bit more modern, starting with the drum sound and the bass sounds — having a much more distorted sound." He added, "I think 'Before The Dawn' pretty much is a [straight] cover — [there's] just a little more orchestral things going on, I have more strings in the song compared to the JUDAS PRIEST [original]. Back then there wasn't much strings going on. I think they even have a piano [in the original version], which I don't have. I have strings and I have this atmosphere stuff going on. Vocal-wise, I just added a harmony at the last bridge before last chorus, I added a harmony which is not on the original, but that's the basic difference."
