The Grave Digger
Released: 2001, Nuclear Blast
A power metal band that really doesn't get much attention in my personal experiences (or at least the amount of attention it deserves). Grave Digger have really never strayed much off their musical path. I really like all the material I have heard from these guys. However, for me it is difficult to get into this band by only listening to them a few times. This is definately one of those bands you need to listen to repetitively to fully understand but it makes it more enjoyable that way. I think this album is very good, however I like TUNES OF WAR a little bit more. I can't compare this album to their previous album EXCALIBUR since I never got a chance to listen to it (maybe I will pick it up on my next CD haul).
You know those people who really can't handle anything really symphonic or happy sounding when it comes to power metal? This band is for them. Thrashy vocals with no symphonic stuff. These guys try to stick to the basics and they've been doing it since 1983. My personal picks on the album are "The House", "Funeral Procession", "King Pest", and if you have the digipack like me, "Black Cat". This album is not a let down of any sort and is just as good as their past releases.
