One of the great cheesy 80s heavy metal album covers ... too bad it isn't reproduced on this site. Great thing about this band is you'd have an album full of raging heavy songs and then one ballad ("Yesterday" on this one) that sounded totally out of place 'cos of the singer's gravelly voice. Anyone remember when these guys tried to go the more commercial route and changed the name briefly to "Digger"? What a joke that was!

excellent band! I wish that there were more Grave Digger CDs included on this site. Rheingold, The Grave Digger, Excalibur, etc. are all outstanding CDs.

Sadly ,I had lost touch my inner Grave Digger.Man does this one have a Vicious Bite!! The Days of when this was new. ..this is Great. I've got to find this on C.D.

"The Lendary First" was the descriptor of this album in the 80's on the paper album sleeves of Noise Records. I think that is NOT an overstatement. Well worth getting; the Japanese version has several singles and a couple of alternate mixes. GET IT! All the stuff with Peter Mason rocked ("Witch Hunter" and "War Games" Don't know why he left, but, because it is so different, I like Digger's "Stronger than Ever." "Heart of Darkess" is the best of their later stuff. Kinda got repetitive after

Classic album of a band that has done a lot but has received a little IMHO...the main song "Heavy Metal Breakdown" is a hymn of the germans and a must at any concert...tracks 4,5,7 & 8(cover)are also appealing ones.80/100
