Summer Breeze 2014 – Dinkelsbuhl, Germany

November 3rd, 2014


Metal, beer and bratwurst are the unholy alliance at German metal festivals. Those festivals are those things that every banger has to experiment once in lifetime. Even though festivals are packed by those obvious and quaranteed bands on the bill, but missing the true metal feeling is something. Summer Breeze has grown tremendously and gained the monumental status amongst several other metal festivals in Germany. The main headliner of this year was without any doubts Machine Head. The Summer Breeze festival is the well organized metal festival in Southern Germany. Even though most of bands appeal to the metal public, but some strange German acts such as JBO were on the bill. However, Summer Breeze was a great success, despite the horrible weather. Here is the brief article of the fest.

August 12th, 2014
Randy Black

Randy Black

Official statement from the band:
“Due to irreconcilable differences between singer Ralf Scheepers and drummer Randy Black, Primal Fear announce that Randy will leave the band effective August 16th, 2014 – one day after the band’s performance @ the Summer Breeze Festival, Randy’s final show with the band. Primal Fear will announce their new drummer in September. We wish Randy all the best in his future career! “

Ralf Scheepers:
“For all of you out there who are wondering now about the reasons why Randy has left the band: We’ve agreed to keep the reasons private! Decisions are made and have to be accepted! It’s as sad as it is but Randy and I have agreed on having respect to each other and there will be NO dirty laundry! If we can’t work together as pro’s anymore, we still can go separate ways like pro’s! So please show some respect to Randy’s decision, to him as a person, the bands future and me as a person.

Thank you!

Mat Sinner:
“Bang! One part of me can understand Randy’s decision, the one part not. But after 11 years together in a band, sharing buses, stages & hotels, through good & bad times, this is a sad moment – good luck Randy! I accept what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be!”
