Biography

The Grave Digger is back! This German metal machine has been touring the globe relentlessly for a whopping 35 years and has kept the fire alive ever since ‘Heavy Metal Breakdown’ was unleashed in 1984. Grave Digger delivers everything you’d expect from a band of their ilk: heavy riffs, a driving rhythm section that acts as the backbone of each song, lacerating solos and of course frontman Chris Boltendahl’s raw vocals. Ever since the early 80s, Grave Digger has regaled us with tales of Excalibur, the crusades, Wagner’s operas and even Jesus Christ. ‘Healed by Metal’ dropped earlier this year: with its passion, authenticity and raw quality, this is yet another worthy addition to their repertoire. Heavy metal at its ball-breaking finest! Grave Digger also appreciates the finer things in life. In collaboration with the German distillery Ziegler they market their own single-malt whisky, an idea from guitarist Axel Ritt. The golden ‘Aureum 1865 Grave Digger Edition’ is an award-winning single-malt whisky. Now also available in the Benelux. (#GMM17)
