    Grave Digger: Chris Boltendahl (vocals); Thilo Herrmann, Manni Schmidt (guitar, guitars); Hans Peter Katzenburg (keyboards); Jens Becker (bass instrument, bass guitar); Stefan Arnold (drums).
    While some early metal bands have taken the Metallica route of toning down their sound to appeal to a wider audience, with BALLADS OF A SONGMAN Grave Digger delivers a record as fiercely aggressive as their debut, released nearly three decades earlier. The power metal formula may not be new but it is still powerful: pile-driving double kick drum, jackhammer guitar riffs, alternately growling and shrieking vocals, and lyrics about death, despair, and darkness. Highlights include the title track's frightening Teutonic choruses and the Motorhead-esque "Stormrider."

  • Critic Reviews
    Kerrang (Magazine) (p.54) - "[F]ull frontal power metal assaults that deal in Teutonic severity with ludicrous, horror-based concepts."
