PRIMAL FEAR is currently putting together a new DVD, "16.6 – All Over The World", to be released in June via Frontiers Records. The bulk of the set will be composed of footage from the 2009 concerts in Switzerland and Atlanta, Georgia, with additional material from Japan, Colombia, Brazil, Germany and Sweden. The band says, "[We] still [have] a long way to go [before completing the DVD], but it will be a killer package, including the first official live CD of PRIMAL FEAR, 'Live In The USA', recorded in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York." The group adds, "Achim Köhler is already working on the mix of the audio stuff." A European tour in support of the new DVD and live DVD will take place in the fall.

Pamela Moore's latest CD, "Stories from a Blue Room", was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Neil Kernon and features 11 songs that were co-written by Benjamin Anderson (ex-RORSCHACH TEST). The recording and mixing took place at Sonic Ranch Studios and Robert Lang Studios with Jason Kowalski (N17, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS) on drums, Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE) on guitar, Michael Wilton (QUEENSRŸCHE, SOULBENDER) and Anderson, Brian Gordon (ION VEIN) on bass and even some backing vocals provided by Terri Nunn (BERLIN).
"16.6 (Before The Devil Knows You're Dead)", the new album from PRIMAL FEAR, was released in Europe on May 22, 2009 and was made available in the U.S. in early June 2009 via Frontiers Records.
"16.6 (Before The Devil Knows You're Dead)" was recorded at House Of Music studios in Winterbach, Germany with Dennis Ward and Achim Köhler. The CD marks the group's first release with Magnus Karlsson (ALLEN/LANDE, STARBREAKER), who replaced Stefan Leibing last year. Returning guitarist Henny Wolter and Karlsson participated in the songwriting and pre-production, which took place at Karlsson's Stuntguitar Studio in Sweden. The band spent four weeks at House Of Music recording the effort, which was mastered by Ted Jensen at the Sterling Sound in New York City.
