German power metallers GRAVE DIGGER have issued the following update:"Last weekend, we've been at the TLC studio, Cologne /Pulheim to put down the first song ideas of the upcoming album. "Holy shit, what a blast! Although we only got the first compositions on the list, you can imagine the direction of the songs. Let's call it typical GRAVE DIGGER! Once again you'll get the full monty, but spiced with some tiny little finesse. "After all that stress within the last year (losing two guitarists), finally we had the chance to leave the ballast behind and rock it off our chest. Axel [Ritt, guitar] and Jens [Becker, bass] put down some awesome riff ideas, which will be hammered to real hot steel within the next three months. "In the middle of May, we'll be at Principal studio [in Senden, Germany] once again, let the Resetti Brothers (never change a winning team) produce the new album. All you fans out there will get what you want us to do and for what you loved and kept faith with us." GRAVE DIGGER's latest album, "Ballads Of A Hangman", was released on January 9, 2009 via Austria's Napalm Records. Fan-filmed video footage of GRAVE DIGGER's November 21, 2009 performance at the Carioca Club in Sao Paulo, Brazil can be viewed below.
