Grave Digger Premiere “Barbarian” Lyric Video

Grave Digger have premiered a lyric video for their song “Barbarian.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Fields Of Blood.” The group commented:

“BARBARIAN … the new Grave Digger single ‘Barbarian’ from the album Fields Of Blood is Teutonic steel in its purest form. No prisoners are taken here… you can feel how Cumberland pushes the “Highland Cleanings” and how whole villages are getting destroyed. He violates the Highlander women and kills everything in his way. His indescribable Cruelty is unparalleled in the history of Scotland. ‘Barbarian’ will become another band classic. Chorus will be hammered in your head… ‘Cold blooded murderer, Killer of the Jacobites, Butcher of Culloden, Cumberland the BARBARIAN’.”

Grave Digger Premiere Video For New Song “Thousand Tears” Feat. Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo

Grave Digger have premiered a new video for their new song “Thousand Tears.” This track features Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo and it will appear on the band’s new album “Fields Of Blood” (out May 29).

Chris Boltendahl commented:

“With ‘Thousand Tears’, we pay homage to the unforgettable Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart… Noora from Battle Beast gives Queen Mary an incredible, warm and fragile atmosphere through her voice which at the end of the song turns into pure anger and despair. We couldn’t have found a better voice for this song. We are proud to present ‘Thousand Tears’ featuring Noora Louhimo. One of the best ballads Grave Digger has ever written, maybe the best of our entire career.”

Louhimo added:

“It’s an honor to do a collaboration with the legendary Grave Digger and I’m very intrigued by the Scottish-themed songs they’ve done. Now I will also be part of their historical song ‘Thousand Tears’ as the voice of Queen Mary. I hope all listeners can hear the big emotions and get a little glimpse of her story as one of most powerful women that lived in her time.”

Grave Digger To Celebrate 40th Anniversary With New Album “Fields Of Blood”

Grave Digger will be celebrating their 40th Anniversary with a new album titled “Fields Of Blood.” The effort will be released on May 29 and a lyric video for the first single “All For The Kingdom” can be found below. Chris Boltendahl commented:

“We did it again and put on the kilts… as we always got fascinated by Scotland and its history. For a long time we considered when the right time would be to return to the Highlands, delve into their legends and myths. Our 40th band anniversary seems to be the right occasion for this and so we take you on a trip for the third time… put on the kilts and pull out your swords and axes, follows us to Stirling and Culloden and experience up close Scottish history, up close, authentic and emotional. As William Wallace / Braveheart said: Yes, they may take our lives. But they never take away our freedom!”

Grave Digger Premiere “The Power Of Metal” Lyric Video

Grave Digger have premiered a lyric video for their new song “The Power Of Metal.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Living Dead,” which was released today (September 14). Vocalist Chris Boltendahl commented:

“It’s a song about metal, about a life in the underground, about a life which is different. To be a metalhead is the greatest gift on earth — from the day you heard the first notes of a Judas Priest or Iron Maiden song, you’re addicted to this kind of music. The love and passion for metal makes you a special person and the power of metal can heal. It makes you stronger and gives you a better life.”
