This year marks 40 years of one of the most influential and pioneering bands of the German heavy metal scene! May 29, 2020 will see metal titans GRAVE DIGGER release their 20th studio album via Napalm Records, and their 40th band anniversary will be celebrated in the most glorious way. With their brand new album, Fields Of Blood, the band around charismatic frontman Chris Boltendahl continues their iconic Scottish Highlands story!

Today, GRAVE DIGGER are presenting a very special highlight and the second single of the album. The new track "Thousand Tears" features the incomparable voice of Noora of BATTLE BEAST, refining the most touching metal ballad of the year in a duet with Chris Boltendahl! An unforgettable moment of GRAVE DIGGER's from Fields Of Blood, the track invites the listener into a melancholic dream, sweetened with a high class vocal mélange and an outstanding instrumental arrangement.

Says GRAVE DIGGER frontman Chris Boltendahl:

"With "Thousand Tears", we pay homage to the unforgettable Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart... Noora from BATTLE BEAST gives Queen Mary an incredible, warm and fragile atmosphere through her voice which at the end of the song turns into pure anger and despair. We couldn't have found a better voice for this song. We are proud to present "Thousand Tears" feat. Noora Louhimo. One of the best ballads GRAVE DIGGER has ever written, maybe the best of our entire career."

Noora adds: "It’s an honour to do a collaboration with the legendary GRAVE DIGGER and I’m very intrigued by the Scottish themed songs they’ve done. Now I will also be part of their historical song "Thousand Tears" as the voice of Queen Mary. I hope all listeners can hear the big emotions and get a little glimpse of her story as one of most powerful women that lived in her time."

Listen to the ultimate heavy metal ballad of 2020 and watch the new video for "Thousand Tears" on KNAC.COM HERE.

Fields of Blood is the conclusion of a legendary trilogy and an auditory battle of unique traditional metal. The album takes the listener on an emotional journey through Scottish history and into explosive sound landscapes. Driving riffs and epic choruses meet the famous "Great Highland Bagpipes": In the Highlands, the battlefields of Stirling, Bannockburn and Culloden, the listener will find himself on a rollercoaster between grief and triumph again, losses and wins with the Scottish freedom fighters.

After The Clans Will Rise Again and Tunes Of War, GRAVE DIGGER close their Highland saga in triumphal style. Just recently, the band shared a first single, "All for the Kingdom", a mercilessly epic track and heavy metal masterpiece that shows the direction of the new GRAVE DIGGER album in perfection.

Even 40 years later, the ethos of the band has not changed, and yet GRAVE DIGGER sound modern and timeless like never before. They still stay true to their no-frills, traditional brand of metal with unwavering pure steel, which nevertheless offers surprises, and celebrates such a special anniversary of one of the most successful German heavy metal pioneers in the most glorious style!
