Dragony signs worldwide record deal with Napalm Records

Unstoppable Austrian symphonic power metal heroes Dragony have signed a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records. Eight years have passed since they debuted with their first album “Legends”, and despite their humble beginnings back in 2007, the band is now a well-known representative of the genre. Owing to their outstanding live performance skills, Dragony quickly arose to share the stage with Blind Guardian, Sonata Arctica, Powerwolf, Van Canto and many others.
 

Grave Digger announces February & March 2021 European Headlining Tour

After the chart breaking release of German Heavy Metal heroes Grave Digger’s 20th studio album on their 40 year band jubilee, the band around singer Chris “Reaper” Boltendahl have released the fourth video, taken from “Fields of Blood”, “Barbarian”.  Heavy riffs, thundering drums and the distinctive vocals take us back to 1746 - to the battlefield of Culloden deep in the Scottish Highlands, where the Jacobites were defeated in a bloody battle by the Duke of Cumberland - The “Barbarian”.

Grave Digger - Fields of Blood

Well, the thing with Grave Digger is kinda complicated, but also simple at the same time. They’re a band that for the best part of their forty year career has stood their ground performing their Teutonic heavy metal (greatly influenced by Accept etc.). When they did stray – trying to go into commercial territory (ie during the Digger period), they did fail rather spectacularly, thus resuming in their heavy metal ways and not refraining that much ever after.
