German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR have begun mixing their new album with Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, PRETTY MAIDS, DESTRUCTION) at his Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark for a January 2014 release via Frontiers Records. 12 songs were recorded during the new CD sessions, including “two epic songs, one guitar ballad, and nine crushing metal songs with all the trademarks you know and love to hear from PRIMAL FEAR,” according to the band. The CD was engineered by Achim Köhler (EDGUY, MASTERPLAN) and is being produced by PRIMAL FEAR bassist Mat Sinner.

In a recent interview with Jump Metal, PRIMAL FEAR vocalist Ralf Scheepers stated about the musical direction of the band’s upcoming album: “It’s not so far away [from what we’ve done in the past], because we have our style, you know. It was hard for us to imagine… because [2012’s] ‘Unbreakable’ was a pretty tough… and really, in our ears, pretty great album, and for us, it was somehow hard to top it. But as soon as we started to write the new songs, and as soon as I heard what Mat and Magnus [Karlsson, guitar] did in the first place — because then they sent me some stuff and I added my ideas on it — I just thought, ‘Wow, this is amazing.’ And in the end, it really turned out to be a better album than ‘Unbreakable’.”

Frontiers and PRIMAL FEAR in January announced that they have renewed their partnership for another multi-album deal, which will include two more studio releases and one live CD and DVD.

PRIMAL FEAR‘s latest album, “Unbreakable”, sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 44 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

“Valkyrja”, the seventh full-length album from the Faroe Islands natives TÝR, will be released on September 17 in North America (one day earlier internationally) via Metal Blade Records.

A track from the CD, entitled “Another Fallen Brother”, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.

Fans can now view a small glimpse of the creative process behind “Valkyrja” while the band was at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen. The video features some of George Kollias‘ drum tracking, as well as vocal tracking, and can be viewed below.

TÝR has announced that Amon Ellingsgaard will be drumming for the band on their European tour with FINNTROLL. Amon is currently drummer for TÝR frontman Heri Joensen‘s side project HELJAREYGA. Many fans may already be familiar with Amon, who is also the nephew of former drummer Kari Streymoy, as he has filled in for TÝR before on the first Paganfest in 2008.

“Valkyrja” is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an anonymous Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja — the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Joensen goes on to explain: “The woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”
