Grave Digger - Ballads of a Hangman

Still going strong are the German power metallers Grave Digger. Ballads of a Hangman is due out shortly, but the album cover really caught my eye before the promo hit my mailbox.

Outside of the cheesiness factor of the Grim Reaper holding a guitar as part of his role as inquisitor and executioner against a monestary of monks, the details of this piece are pretty impressive if not blasphemous.
