REPOST : Gravestone - War (Garden Of Delights) 1980

Biography In the eighties, Gravestone from Illertissen, Swabia, became quite famous as a hard rock group. What many people don't know is that they initially - and with a different line-up - released two LPs with progressive rock and critical lyrics, namely "Doomsday" (AVC K 793102 ST) from 1979 and "War" (AVC LP 80020 ST) from 1980, in small editions of 1000 copies each. Meanwhile both albums have been released as CDs on Garden of Delights; both drawn from the master tape. In addition to a very detailed band history the booklets of both CDs contain a lot of photographs, a complete discography also of the group's late period, cover and label reproductions, etc. "War" contains more vocals than "Doomsday", namely four tracks sung in English, two in German, and one instrumental piece.

The origins of GRAVESTONE go back to 1975, when Rudi DORNER and Mike SCHMIDT formed a band called HEIZKÖRPER. In 1976 they were joined by Berti MAJDAN and changed the name of the band to OREGON. In early 1977 they were also joined by Wolfgang RITTNER and Andy MÜLLER, and at the suggestion of of Berti MAJDAN they changed name again to GRAVESTONE.
GRAVESTONE, like several compatriots of the time, initially experienced nothing but failure. Their two early LPs - 1979's ''Doomsday'' and 1980's ''War'' - remain relatively unknown even to this day, yet they hung around long enough to enjoy a small taste of recognition following the colossal 80's success of fellow countrymen like SCORPIONS and ACCEPT. Capitalizing on this sudden surge of interest, vocalist Berti MAJDAN - with a new line up featuring guitarists Mathias DIETH and Klaus REINELT, bassist Thomas SABISCH, and drummer Dieter BEHLE - released three additional albums from their home base outside the southern city of Stuttgart - namely 1984's ''Victim of Chains'' (featuring bassist Oli ORLITTA), 1985's ''Back to Attack'', and 1986's ''Creating a Monster'' - before morphing into a new band named 48 CRASH, who played a much more commercial brand of hard rock, releasing an album called ''Some Like It Hot'' in 1990.
1993 saw the release of an eponymous collection of GRAVESTONE's best 80's output, and guitarist DIETH went on to work with both U.D.O. and SINNER in later years.
