"Delivering The Black", the tenth studio album from German/Swedish power metallersPRIMAL FEAR, has entered the official chart in Germany at position No. 13. The CD was released on January 24 in Europe and January 28 in North America viaFrontiers Records.

After some very intense songwriting sessions and pre-production schedule, the band started to record the new CD in summer 2013 at theHouse Of Musicstudios in Germany, with bassist/producerMat Sinnerand engineerAchim Köhler(EDGUY,MASTERPLAN). The band then moved to Denmark in September to finish the album, with acclaimed producer/engineerJacob Hansen(VOLBEAT,PRETTY MAIDS,AMARANTHE) handling the mix at hisHansenstudio in Ribe.

"Delivering The Black"combines the strongestPRIMAL FEARmoments ever, with a well-balanced typicalPRIMAL FEARtrademark riff vibe, crushing songs and some very ambitious musical journeys. The centerpiece of the album are two epic tracks,"When Death Comes Knocking"and the 10-minute opus"One Night In December", spiced with big orchestral arrangements and complex sound designs.

Classic and ultra-freshPRIMAL FEARriff-rockers like the title track, the album opener"King For A Day"or the groove monsters"Alive And On Fire"and"Road To Asylum"hit the bulls-eye just like the untamed speed killer"Rebel Faction". The outstanding ballad"Born With A Broken Heart"shows a new side ofPRIMAL FEARwith an acoustic guitar vibe and the addition ofLiv Kristine(LEAVES' EYES) on backing vocals.

SaysPRIMAL FEARsingerRalf Scheepers: "We worked hard to create our best album ever. I already felt the vibe during the pre-production that we were working on something very special this time. And now the result is just an amazing metal album I'm extremely proud of!"Sinneradds: "The songs, the production, the sound - this album is a very special one for me and my career. In my view, everybody in the band just did a killer job andJacobwas fantastic choice to mix the album!"

The arrival of"Delivering The Black"was preceded by the release of the digital-only single/video"When Death Comes Knocking"on December 2 - a song which sets the pace for the outstanding quality of production and songwriting displayed on the full album.

"Delivering The Black"was made available in a regular CD edition, deluxe edition with two bonus tracks and - in cooperation withSoulfood Music- vinyl edition and DVD and limited edition (666 copies only!) of a super-deluxe version, including a metallic eagle.
