Following the release of their chart-topping album Metal Commando in 2020, German metal commandos PRIMAL FEAR return with their eleven-track magnum opus titled Code Red, set for release on September 1st through Atomic Fire.
PRIMAL FEAR today offers up the first single and accompanying video from the record with opening song âAnother Hero.â The track appropriately sets the tone for Code Red by delivering, “heavy metal in its purest form while breathing the spirit of current times,â as Rock It! (DE) Magazine’s JÃ¼rgen Will stated after an advance listen to the record.
Vocalist Ralf Scheepers elaborates on the song’s lyrical topic, “Sometimes I wish there would be ‘Another Hero’ who shows mankind how to get along with each other in peace and harmony.”
