German metal commandos Primal Fear released their latest hit studio album “Code Red” (official album chart results: Germany #6, Switzerland #6 etc.), which was highly praised by fans and media alike, on September 1st, 2023, followed by the first leg of a supporting European tour, an extensive Latin American run as well as their triumphant return to Japan in January. To perform alongside label mates U.D.O., the group are now set to embark on the second European part of their “Code Red” tomorrow, and in celebration of these much anticipated dates, they have launched a brand new video for the 2024 version of their adaption of Pamala Stanley’s / Heart’s classic track “If Looks Could Kill”. Check out the reworked track, remixed by Jacob Hansen and masterfully visualised by Hard Media’s Ingo Spörl, and get your tickets, if you don’t want to miss the two German heavy metal giants sharing German/Swiss stages during the next days – five shows are already sold out (all details can be found below)!

Mat Sinner recalls its origin:

“After a longer period, we thought about working on a cover version again, but not just a regular metal song. Heart’s version of “If Looks Could Kill” – featuring Ann Wilson, one of the top 5 female singers – is already fantastic. The challenge was to add some Primal Fear metal mojo and make Ralf compete with Ann’s fabulous vocals, giving the vocal section his own identity. In the end it was a shame that the song only appeared on the »Best Of Fear« album, because we really love this version. Ralf’s performance is outstanding and now we had the chance to remix the track to finally give the song the attention it deserves!”
