The brand new Grave Digger album, 'Healed By Metal', which is the German Metal Titans' nineteenth studio album, will be released on January 13th 2017 on Napalm Records and today we bring you the exclusive World Premiere of the fifth track from the opus, 'Call For War'.

Grave Digger frontman of thirty-six years, Chris Boltendahl, told us:

"'Call For War'... a banger in best Grave Digger tradition, simple and energetic – if it catches you once, it won't let go of you anymore.

"Don't try to run and hide... the refrain will haunt you everywhere... there's no escaping. 'Call For War'... a statement against war and oppression!!!"

And here is 'Call For War', for your enjoyment...

Chris previously told us, in late September when 'Healed By Metal' was first announced:

"We're stronger, heavier and more Metal than ever! Here are your Ten Commandments of Metal!"

The album's title track was released last week and had already clocked up more than 100,000 YouTube views. Here it is again in case you missed it...

Grave Digger are one of Germany's pioneering Metal acts and thirty-six years since the band's formation, their attitude hasn't changed. The title track (and opener) of 'Healed By Metal' is a stomping anthem, stoic and proud yet still catchy and beastly.

Grave Digger stay true to their no-frills traditional brand of Metal on album number nineteen (1986s 'Stronger Than Ever' was released under the name Digger).

The thunder rains on endless roads as you'll hear on 'Lawbreaker', 'Ten Commandments Of Metal', 'Free Forever' and the whole of the 'Healed By Metal' album which you can pre-order from Amazon right here.
