wacken & more - 2001-08-16 00:00

2001-08-16 00:00 - It was time for the Grave Digger to finally appear in Wacken. Chris and his mates recorded this show to release a DVD and a live-album of it. They entered the stage as usual with their Scottish tribute Hymn „Scotland United“. The fans were in high expectations for this show, 'cause it was the first big show with their new guitarist Manni Schmidt. Manni was accepted from the time he played his first lick. „Dark Of The Sun“ was the opener to one of the best live performances at this years' Wacken Open Air. The band was in a good condition and they had real fun playing in front of more than 20.000 headbangers. The fans were banging the whole set and were singing all the songs together with the band. I watched part of the show from the stage and it was more than impressing that everybody knew all the songs. Every member of the band enjoyed the show and they were happy about the reactions of the fans. I never saw Chris smiling that often during a set. He was impressed, so were we. Good done boys!
Watch out for their fantastic new album „The Grave Digger“

Here’s the tracklist:

1. Scotland United
2. Dark of the Sun
3. The Reaper
4. The Roundtable
5. Excalibur
6. Cirlcle of Witches
7. Ballad of Mary
8. Lionheart
9. Morgane Le Fay
10. Knights of the Cross
11. Rebellion
12. HM Breakdown
