Disc one is a solid comp of Primal Fear tunes & is probably best suited for the newbie. I picked it up for the second disc of covers, all well-done & several of which are not easily found elsewhere. I just wish they could have included "Horrorscope" somewhere on here since that track is somewhat elusive. (I have the eagle-shaped EP, but I'm too scared to put it in any of my CD players!) I also wish they had used more than two songs from "Black Sun" as I think that may be their best release to date. But I can't really complain since I bought this new for under 10 bucks. So if you're just discovering PF or you're a long-time fan who likes the idea of having their various covers together on one CD, I can recommend this if you can find it at a good price.

I'm not what you'd call a serious Primal Fear fan. Don't get me wrong, I generally enjoy their brand of Judas Priest-worshipping German power metal, and I think their last album (New Religion) is one of the decade's best power metal releases, but I never found their earlier albums to be quite as essential. They were always solid and professional, but they tended towards repetition. That's where a compilation like Metal is Forever (great title, by the way) comes in handy.

Metal is Forever: The Very Best of Primal Fear pulls together the best material from Primal Fear's back catalog, with 3 songs from 1998's Primal Fear, 2 from 1999's Jaws of Death, 3 from 2001's Nuclear Fire, 2 from 2002's Black Sun, 3 from 2004's Devil's Ground, and 3 from 2005's Seven Seals. The songs aren't in chronological order, so the transition between songs is sometimes very noticeable. Still, this is a very comprehensive overview of what Primal Fear's studio albums, and you definitely get a good idea of the kind of metal former Gamma Ray frontman (and contender to replace Rob Halford in Judas Priest) Ralf Scheepers and Sinner mainman Mat Sinner have unleashed on the world.

If that weren't enough, Metal is Forever also includes a bonus disc with 9 completely predictable (and completely awesome) cover songs. On this disc, Primal Fear takes on Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Accept, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and Led Zeppelin. It would have been cool to see them take on the Scorpions and Helloween, but for the most part I think they covered all the bases here.

I don't normally buy best of albums because by the time I get around to it I already have all the songs off the original albums. Without the benefit of having all their albums yet I don't know yet if I would agree the selections of songs on disc 1 are their best songs. It will be a while before I have them all. I'll probably edit this later by then. Anyway, the main reason why I bought this was for the bonus cd of classic metal songs that they covered. Primal Fear does extremely well covering other bands songs and I especially enjoyed their cover of Seek and Destroy by Metallica and Two Minutes to Midnight by Iron Maiden. I would have liked it if they had picked a different song to cover by Judas Priest, only because other bands have covered it before. I was kind of hoping they would have picked a more obscure one. Overall I liked both discs very much. If you like Primal Fear this disc won't dissapoint you.

This is the very best of Primal Fear, a German heavy metal band. Sounds like Judas Priest. Great musicianship and song writing. The beat of consists of 2 cds. First cd has the greatest hits of Primal Fear which is excellent by itself. The 2nd cd consists of 9 cover songs. They cover Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Accept, Gary Moore, and Led Zeppelin. The Led Zeppelin cover of "The Rover" is one of the greatest covers ever. You cannot go wrong with this cd. Both discs are worthy of 5 stars. What are you waiting for ? Buy it !!!!

Primal Fear is one of the best current heavy metal bands out there. Their original stuff is very good, but I have to say the 2nd covers CD in this set absolutely rocks! I've found myself listening to it over and over again, wishing there was more. They've picked some great songs, including a few not-so-well-known ones, and re-did them Primal Fear style. Great job, and I hope we get to hear more soon!

This hard to find disk is worth the effort. Metal is bigger in Europe than it is stateside, and these guys are first rate musicians. Vocals are reminiscent of Adam Lambert on American Idol. That kind of vocal range is truly one in a million.

Worth checking out even if you are not into metal!
