With metal anthems like “Heavy Metal Breakdown”, GRAVE DIGGER became one of the most influential and pioneering bands of the German heavy metal scene since the early 80s, and 2020 will celebrate the 40th anniversary of these Teutonic metal masters in glorious style!
On their 20th studio album, titled Fields Of Blood, the band around frontman Chris Boltendahl continues their epic Highlands story! Fields Of Blood is the logic consequence of a legendary trilogy and an auditory battle of unique traditional metal. Slated for release on May 29 via Napalm Records, Fields Of Blood will take us on an emotional journey through Scottish history and into explosive sound landscapes. Driving riffs and epic choruses meet the famous “Great Highland Bagpipes”: In the Highlands, the battlefields of Stirling, Bannockburn and Culloden, the listener will find himself on a rollercoaster between grief and triumph again, trials and wins with the Scottish freedom fighters. After “The Clans Will Rise Again” and “Tunes Of War”, GRAVE DIGGER close their Highland saga in epic style.
Today, the iconic band has not only unveiled their incredible album artwork, but is also sharing a first single – the epic magnum opus, “All For The Kingdom”! And hell yes, this track perfectly sets the scene for the final and long-awaited part of their Scottish Highland trilogy: “All for the Kingdom” is a mercilessly epic song that shows the direction of the new GRAVE DIGGER album. No prisoners are taken here and GRAVE DIGGER prove what they do best even after 40 years of their impressive band history. Choruses and riffs that cut into your ear canals and hearts to stay there, as well as hundreds of thousands of Highlanders have remained on the battlefields, believing in a better life in freedom and independence.
