Con una lunga discografia in oltre 35 anni di carriera, i Grave Digger sono una delle più longeve ed apprezzate bands dedite al vero Heavy Metal. Per celebrare il loro 30° anniversario invitano sul palco del Wacken, nel 2010, come special guests, Doro Pesch, Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian) e Van Canto ad unirsi alla celebrazione live dell' intero album "Tunes of War". La straordinaria reazione dei fan e l'eccezionale chimica degli ospiti coinvolti porta quindi a registrare "Ballad Of Mary" nel 2011. Uscita di 5 tracce che presenta, ri-registrata, la resiliente e senza tempo "Rebellion" con Hansi Kürsch e Van Canto in un ruolo di supporto. La performance della regina del metal Doro e dei Van Canto donano alla bellissima "The Ballad of Mary" non solo un nuovo approccio, ma anche una ritrovata profondità. Il brano termina su una più lunga e sinfonica nota ed è disponibile anche in versione unplugged. Entrambi i brani tratti dall' epico “Tunes of War” (1996) brillano di rinnovato splendore. Le altre tracce sono "Highland Farewell" e "Coming Home" (entrambe da “The Clans will Rise Again” – 2010) nelle loro versioni strumentali con arrangiamenti corali aggiuntivi che costruiscono un climax epico. Disponibile per la prima volta in Lp ,concesso in licenza da Napalm Records. I Grave Digger + Doro Pesch + Hansi Kursch, inimitabile marchio di fabbrica dei Blind Guardian, + puro acciaio da "Tunes of War",... sì è solo un Ep, ma c'è qualcosa di più metal di questo?
With a long discography in over 35 years of career, Grave Digger are one of the most longeval and appreciated band devoted to classic and true Heavy Metal. To mark their 30th anniversary, Grave Digger invited on stage at the Wacken Open Air 2010, as special guests, Doro Pesch, Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian) and Van Canto to join in the celebration of “Tunes of War” album, performing it live in its entirety. The amazing reaction of the fans and the outstanding chemistry of the guests involved led to record “Ballad Of Mary” in 2011. The 5-track release features, re-recorded, the resilient and timeless "Rebellion" featuring Hansi Kürsch and Van Canto in a supporting role. The performance of metal queen Doro and Van Canto bestow the beautiful "The Ballad of Mary" not only a fresh approach, but also newfound depth. The track ends on a longer and more symphonic note and is available also in unplugged version. Both tracks originally from epic album “Tunes of War” (1996) shine in renewed splendour. The other tracks are "Highland Farewell" and "Coming Home" (both from “The Clans will Rise Again” – 2010) in their instrumental versions with additional choral arrangements that build up to an epic climax.
First time on vinyl, kindly licensed by Napalm Records. Grave Digger + Doro Pesch + Hansi Kursch. inimitable Blind Guardian trademark, + pure steel from "Tunes of War",... yes it's only an Ep, but is there something more metal of this?
