GRAVE DIGGER that carries almost four decades from their debut 'Heavy Metal Breakdown' up till today the fourpiece stands for solid German metal without frills and decoration. Chris Boltendahl and his band mates are part of a prototype for authentic heavy metal, one of the success factors of this quartet. Yes, there is the controversial stronger-than-ever, but next to this misled sidestep each of the GRAVE DIGGER records has been a treat for metalheads from all over the world. The newest album 'Healed By Metal' doesn't change this pattern. The band unleashes their already eighteenth record that features ten brand new power metal songs (2 bonus on deluxe edition). GRAVE DIGGER stay true to themselves which is good news. This quartet isn't a musical chameleon. These guys are solid as a rock and anthems like the powering title track or the uptempo rocker 'Call For War' are pure fun for everybody that loves traditional metal. With 'Free Forever' the bands honors bands like Saxon, at least there are some obvious parallels with 'Solid Balls of Rock', something that's more a quality statement rather than a copycat approach. Another blistering metal pearl is the fast 'Kill Ritual' and also the closer 'Laughing With the Dead' belongs to the highlights on 'Healed By Metal'. This pounding metal hymn is a well-chosen grand finale of an album that shows the relevance of oldschool metal in a fast changing world. 'Healed By Metal' contains everything a well-done traditional metal album has to include. Heavy riffs, might drums and a bassline, acting as the pulse for each song, will push your heart-frequency to the limit.

GRAVE DIGGER clearly proves again that there is no need to re-invent heavy metal. Passion and authenticity, combined with a sense for good hooks and riffs, is enough for a healing cocktail that's like medicine for everybody's metal soul...!
