Black Sun is the fourth studio release and first concept album by German power metal band Primal Fear.

The record is themed around a space exploration mission. A team of astronauts visit a new, never before seen planet, and their craft ends up blowing up in the process of reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. The person or thing they are speaking to in 'Armageddon' is often considered by fans to be the falcon on the covers of their albums.
