      Grave Digger's eighth album (1998).

      The second album of Grave Digger's historical trilogy moves southwards to the crusades and quests of the Knights Templar, and sadly loses much of the fire that made its predecessor so enjoyable. The orchestral background in select songs belies the album's higher budget, and the production quality does sound less raw than previously, which suits the band's increasingly polished, power metal style. Even with heavy power metal leanings in songs such as the title track and the bombastic 'Inquisition,' this is still primarily gruff heavy metal, but a little slower and consequently duller this time round.

      The faster songs like 'The Keeper of the Holy Grail' are the highlights of the album, but even the slower songs are kept from wimping out into ballads. The closing cover of Black Sabbath's 'Children of the Grave' is fairly boring and predictable, and translating the classic song into a generic speed metal song is reasonably sacrilegious, but it's nothing to alert the heavy metal crusaders to.

      11. The Curse of Jacques
      12. The Battle of Bannockburn
      13. Children of the Grave (Black Sabbath cover)
