Ralf Scheepers Solo Album

As previously reported on BraveWords.com here, PRIMAL FEAR vocalist Ralf Scheepers is working on his first solo album. An update from Primal Fear and SINNER bassist Mat Sinner - who is playing bass on the entire record and producing - reads as follows:

"After three years in the making, we will start finally with the production of Ralf's first solo album this weekend. One of the most colorful personalities of the Swedish metal scene will nail down the drums and Studio Seven - Snowy Shaw, who is well known for his work in DREAM EVIL, THERION, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, NOTRE DAME etc. We've confirmed a photo-shoot with Alex Kühr in Germany for the cover artwork on Tuesday. More news on the progress and the impressive guestlist will be revealed soon!"

About the style of the solo effort Sinner told BraveWords.com recently: "In part it’s very metal. Very metal. So it will not be Ralf’s ballad album. There were some ballads where Ralf was showing a different kind of music, his talent in music, because he’s playing all the instruments on one song, for example. So you hear him playing guitar, keyboards, so it’s very interesting. But overall I will say it’s a very tough metal album.”

SCHEEPERS – PRIMAL FEAR Vocalist’s Eponymous Solo Effort, Track-By-Track


by Mark Gromen

The star-studded effort for Ralf Scheepers, his first step outside the safety of PRIMAL FEAR, features help from Snowy Shaw (drums, KING DIAMOND, THERION) Sander Gommans (guitar, ex-AFTER FOREVER), and Fear mates Magnus Karlsson, Alex Beyrodt and Mat Sinner (bass/keys), amongst others. Always a PRIEST fan, most of the music isn’t too far removed from the legendary Brits, nor Scheepers day job, but there are a couple of surprises!




‘Locked In The Dungeon’ – Screaming from the start (actually there’s an initial maniacal laugh), the track is composed around the lead guitar work of Halford/Pain Museum guitarist Metal Mike Chlasciak, who has appeared on PF albums and as a guest, in concert. Upbeat, aggressive with high pitched vocals, in the Priestal Fear style.

‘Remission Of Sin’ – Mid-tempo chugging vocal duet with Tim Ripper Owens, the two men who sought to (temporarily) replace Rob Halford in Judas Priest. Ingenious idea! Still driving guitar beneath the singers.

‘Cyberfreak’ – Slightly mechanized feel, downshifts to jangly mid-section and some Scheepers yelps and echoy choruses. Each of the initial trio has a distinct vibe, yet all recognizable as Primal Fear oriented.

‘The Fall’ – First surprise! Symphonic orchestrated start, before settling into gritty mid-tempo, near ballad, with synth undercurrent.

‘Doomsday’ – Longest rack (6:28, most clock in right around four minutes, give or take), Scheepers initially in a low bellowing spoken voice (“I walk by myself, in the gutter of my life”), followed by lively keyboard driven number, sort of Nightwish-ish, less bombastic. Eventually a mid-paced rocker, apart from brief six-string eruption and recurrent spoken section.

‘Saints Of The Rock’ – simple, big sing-along titular phrased, gang sung chorus. Party rock anthem? Another “different” voice for the big man, nearly indistinguishable as Scheepers.

‘Before The Dawn’ – acoustic Judas Priest cover, with Ralf playing all the instruments, apart from electric guitar solos, courtesy of RAGE’s Victor Smolski. Fairly traditional rendition. Nice touch.

‘Back On The Track’ – Perhaps the title refers to stylistic return to form? An invigorated guitar number, albeit without a subtle passage or two.

‘Dynasty’ “Let me welcome You To the Family. Heavy metal dynasty” Kind of reminded me of JON OLIVA'S PAIN, for some reason.

‘The Pain Of The Accused’ – acoustic guitar intro by Kai Hansen, with whom Scheepers helped found GAMMA RAY. At 6:18, the second longest tune. Begins as if a full-blown ballad, then goes power-ballad on us, although Ralf hits some of the highest notes on the album (holding some in faux operatics). “How can anyone not accept an apology?” Includes guitar interlude and snippet of violin. After false end, fades in modulated (in a tunnel) vocal.

‘Play With The Fire’ – Straight ahead metal number. Wild twin guitar trade-offs!

‘Compassion’ – Another acoustic-only composition, including banjo (!). “Planet Earth moves together as one.”

Definitely enough flavors to warrant solo exploration.

Scheepers' solo debut is due out on February 18th in Europe and February 15th in North America.

Bonne nouvelle!
J'adore ce chanteur, surtout lorsqu'il était chez Gamma Ray, un album solo peut être intéressant.
