Grave Digger has many cool songs...but just not many cool albums in full but this is just a small opinion. The only album I like,is Ballads Of A Hangman....that whole record kicks butt. I've heard all albums in full though. Id still rather listen to Grave Digger albums I dont like than listen to nu age screamo bull shit dudes in baseball cloths and sports hats trying to scream me something extreme...what a joke.

I've had "The Last Supper" for quite a while and love it! Another one of those bands, like Saxon, that I just never looked further into. However, just got "Knights of the Cross" in the mail today and "The Grave Digger" is on the way...

Chris Boltendahl is a good frontman. Lots-o-humor and he really kept the crowd going. Big big props to Blind Guardian and their fans. I think the Blind Guardian fans knew the words to every song. I'm a new fan and learning the lyrics for the next tour.

Listening to the Blind Guardian LP "Beyond The Red Mirror" as I type this and remembering how Hansi Kürsch was jumping all through the chorus of "The Ninth Wave" .

Man I wish Blind Guardian passed through my town this tour... I absolutely love Beyond The Red Mirror...9 out of 10 tracks are a fine golden supurb listening experience...track #9 is a ballad (Miricle Machine) and probly a pretty good one,Im just not into ballads) I too am still hooked on this album....

That's a good tour combo, I was just thinking GD reminded me a bit of BG, just less bombastic and more gruff...
