When: Sun., May 4, 7 p.m. 2014

One of Europe’s most prolific metal acts of all time, Primal Fear exploded out of Germany in 1997 to terrify audiences everywhere. Their 10th studio album, Delivering the Black, is Primal Fear’s most powerful release to date. The typical foreboding scienceb fiction-themed lyrics take a turn for the macabre on “Delivering the Black,” a track that features creepy layered vocals and intense guitar solos. Primal Fear creates epic imagery in the nine-minute song “One Night In December” that shifts between atmospheric orchestral swells and squealing guitar solos, evolving into a soaring crescendo full of cryptic lyrics about Armageddon. The band remains vague about the true meaning of their lyrics, but it doesn’t take much of a stretch to relate Primal Fear songs to real-world situations. (Gonzalez)
