Throughout its career, the band has

released an array of studio albums, live recordings, and compilations, earning a dedicated global following and performing extensively as both headliners and featured acts at major metal festivals. While the lineup has evolved, Scheepers and Sinner have remained the pillars of Primal Fear, guiding its musical vision and sustaining its reputation for delivering formidable metal shows.
