5.0 out of 5 stars Returned with a vengeance 18 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is what you come to expect from Grave Digger, but with a fresh twist on today's power metal scene. Return of the Reaper gives you all the classic sound of these pioneers of German power metal as well as showing the new guys how to do it. The break neck speed of the double kick drums, the thunderous bass line and the soaring guitars is everything you've come to love and expect from these heavy metal stalwarts. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRAVE DIGGER NEVER DISAPPOINT! 19 July 2014
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent release, with superb production! If you liked the last 2 Grave Digger releases you will like this! It is a bit more aggressive, which is okay with me, as I prefer thrash/melodic death. My favorite Grave Digger releases ever were "Heart of Darkness", "The Reaper" and "The Grave Digger". This release would be next. Well worth the money! I hope this review was helpful! Anyone who likes Grave Digger should definitely enjoy Rebellion as well! I purchased the deluxe version with 2 bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only The Good Will Survive! 20 July 2014
By The Night Lamp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very high quality metal album. A lot of people seem to have really responded to the cover artwork, which i also feel is one of the best covers ever. It gives a good impression of the sound of the album; dark, fantastical, like horses emerging from the mist of a battleground, the knight's swords glistening in the moonlight and rain. The album kicks off with an beautiful intro and melts into 'Hell Funeral', an instant classic. I guarantee you will have 'The reaper is back, with angels of black' stuck in your head for days. Honestly every song is at a consistently high level. The only song i cant personally get behind is 'Satan's Host' but thats just a personal preference due to the lyrical theme and content. Another stand out to me is 'Season of the Witch' with its atmospheric clean guitar part, mysterious lyrics and amazing chorus. 'Tattooed Rider' may be the most accessible song on the album because of its general catchiness, to me the chorus section is reminiscent of 80's Accept which is definitely a great thing. If you like pure, solid heavy metal, get this album.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent return by one of the legendary metal bands 20 July 2014
By SnowDog3000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Album sounds great. Chris B. (vocalist) sounds fine. Heavy album. Deluxe version is the one to get. The two studio bonus tracks are very good. The album as a whole grows on you on repeat listens. Actually, aside from guitarists, the bassist and drummer have been with the band for quite a while now. The deluxe version also has some live acoustic tracks (the first four of which are good) that sound similar to the acoustic stuff Gamma Ray has done. So in other progressive acoustic metal basically. Some quibbles: Satan's Host has one risque lyric that is a little too Motorhead (of course it's easy enough to edit it out) but those kind of lines really aren't Grave Digger's thing. There are a few instances of religious language. Some of the guitar solos are too high in the mix. Overall a damn solid album, their most solid album in quite a while in fact. Of course fans of Grave Digger should also check out the band Rebellion's recent albums (originally formed by Tomi and Uwe, two past members of GD and sounds alot like GD). Oh yeah, cool album cover!
