Grave Digger have been an integral part of the German heavy metal scene for over 4 decades. Chris Boltendahl, Axel Ritt, Jens Becker and Marcus Kniep are not only a fixture in the live area, they also regularly deliver high-quality heavy metal albums. On their latest album "Symbol Of Eternity" they continue to spin the story of the Crusaders... after dealing with it on the album "Knights of the Cross" they are now devoting themselves again to the legendary history of the Templars.
Razor-sharp riffs, opulent choir arrangements and the distinctive voice of Chris Boltendahl are components of Grave Digger's new work. All the hallmarks that have characterized the band for 4 decades are continued on the new album and make "Symbol Of Eternity" an original and heavy album. And yet, in addition to the merciless riffs, as in the opening headbanger "Battle Cry", melodic refrains are always in the foreground... hard double bass attacks, paired with mid-tempo songs and the almost Doom-like title track make every headbanger's heart beat faster.
Grave Digger have never been so varied and are not afraid to think outside the box - like on the bonus track "Hellas Hellas", a cover version of Greek superstar Vasilis Papakonstantinou, where Chris sings Greek for the first time in his career and for which the band even managed to win over Vasilis for some vocal passages!
Open your ears and eyes when the new album hits stores worldwide on August 26th and you can take another journey into the secret world of the Templars. The king is dead... long live the king!
