Sounding much like Judas Priest and Motorhead on seperate songs this is a classic sounding album with all the classic elements present and very welcomed to this reviewer.
The   2 songs in question are "Tattooed Rider" that sounds very simular to that of Judas Priest's Turbo Lover also the 2nd is only really for the vocals on "Resurrection Day"
This is one kick ass album takes no prisoners and holds nothing back at all this is one of the best they have put out -however have enjoyed their other releases as well.
Below enjoy the opening song "Hell Funeral" video.


With enough fire & pyrotechnics to start a small army they in a sense have by making the other Old School Heavy Metal bands stand up and take notice that Grave Digger still has what it takes to keep it going, each song a welcome addition to a great year thus far for a good portion of what I have heard.

Below is the lyric video for "Season of the Witch"

I was born in the 60's and have seen/heard the change in Metal and some has been good but the metal that I can get behind is classic stuff like what Grave Digger has successfully created here-this is something great that will get more plays for sure by me I can assure you of that!


If you grew up on classic metal or if you like Heavy Metal at all I am sure you will like this.
