Staff review by
Pierre Tombale

Excalibur, last album of the middle ages trilogy, tells the story and legends among 'King Arthur and The Knights Of The Round Table'. Those myths are formed again under raw lyrics and powerful driving sound that Grave Digger are famous for as well as majestic keyboard parts that sound like medieval music of celtic and british origin from the time the legends take place.

Rating: 8 Probably my favourite album by them-the intro is magical and avalon is a powerful closer. The other songs fortunately follow with the same quality. Awesome album\m/

Rating: 9 For me this is one of the best Grave Digger records (along with "Tunes of War") and the essential part of the classics of heavy metal.
