Grave Digger - Excalibur Review

back to reviews

Artist: Grave Digger

Album: Excalibur

Released: 1999

A mixture of styles and genres: Power Metal

Review:

Oh yeah!!! After their concept albums "Tunes Of War" and "Knights Of The Cross" I was waiting for something... something special... And here it is! The 3rd album in their history-legend concept line. It is dedicated to the English epic legends about King Arthur, Knights of the Round Table, The Excalibur. These guys are amazing. This album lacks nothing! Outstanding songs combine beautiful lyrics and magic music with some classical ancient instruments insertions (flutes, bagpipes etc.), add symphonic and exciting arrangements (all in the spirit of Grave Digger) and you will receive one more power/speed metal masterpiece. There are fast and powerful songs on the album as well as slow and hard songs, which can be definitely cosidered as warriors hymns, plus, a romantic ballad with Chris' rough voice. Lucky owners of digi-pack version of the album may also enjoy very good bonus-track.

Some facts: In Germany, this album had 21th place in national charts, during the first week there were sold over 20,000 CDs; 'Metal Hammer' and 'Metal Heart' magazines called it "the album of the month". When I listen to this album, it really rocks my world!!! What? You haven't got it yet??? GO BUY IT!
