The second album by Swedish retro blues-rock band Graveyard finds them moving from the stoner rock-identified Tee Pee label to the more traditionally metallic Nuclear Blast. They haven’t changed their sound one bit, though; they still sound like a lost band from 1971, somewhere between the U.K.-based Groundhogs and their fellow Swedes in November. The easiest modern comparison would be to Witchcraft, but Witchcraft’s more occult lyrical focus, and influence from heavier acts like Pentagram, sets them apart from Graveyard’s bare-bones boogie, which falls closer to Horisont. The title track of this album finds Graveyard at their most rip-roaring, offering a thunderous riff and some stinging guitar soloing. Other tracks throw little stylistic tweaks (background vocals on “Buying Truth [Tack & Förlåt]”) into the mix, but the basic formula stays the same. “Longing” is the token ballad, an instrumental with some whistling and subtle organ giving it an Ennio Morricone-ish desolation. The album ends with the one-two punch of the hard-rocking “RSS” and the atmospheric, shifting (it starts soft and gets very loud), six-minute “The Siren,” an excellent showcase for the band’s skilled rhythm section. Graveyard should be heard by any fan of retro hard rock…by Phil Freeman …allmusic….~







When Swedish doom/stoner outfit NORRSKEN split up in 2000 it gave birth to two new bands. While one remaining member founded WITCHCRAFT, the rest of the band went on to form something really rare, something obviously unique – an honest sonic feeling that is now known asGRAVEYARD. A group that stands for no boundaries, no limits at all. Playing all sorts of rockish music makes GRAVEYARD stand out from the crowd. Be it classic rock, blues, jazz, folk – you name it – the authentic quintet makes it sound real at any time. With wide influences spreading throughout different genres, GRAVEYARD always stay top notch in what they do – giving the listener a broadened spectrum of emotions, moods & feelings. BLACK SABBATH meets ROLLING STONES meets LED ZEPPELIN meets JANIS JOPLIN … the list could go on longer and longer… While other bands just count on their neo satanic attitude or revived old school imagery, GRAVEYARD deliver it all along withstunning tunes that take you on a journey to a long lost decade of true musicianship. 

“Hisingen Blues” was produced, recorded and mixed in a raw, authentic yet strong and clear way by Don Alsterberg (JOSÉ GONZALES, JUNIP, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) in Don Pierre Studios / Gothenburg, where the band together with Don has managed to create a totally analogue recorded and mixed production that skillfully combines a 70’s vibe with a more powerful modern sound. 

Besides their amazing, catching music, over the years GRAVEYARD have also scored with overwhelmingly great visuals (covers, merchandise, band pics) all over which makes a just perfectly harmonizing package. 
In late 2010 GRAVEYARD drew the attention of Nuclear Blast Records who immediately signed the promising band on the spot. 

Teaming up for the release of their second album “Hisingen Blues”, the world can expect nothing less than a true masterpiece of rock music and a band and label showing what they’ve got up their sleeves! 

Commented head of A&R Andy Siry: “We are honoured to be working with GRAVEYARD from now on! These guys are the most unique and amazing band the so called retro rock scene has to offer although GRAVEYARD are MUCH more than this. Keep your caps peeled – GRAVEYARD is upon us – 2011 will be the year of the ‘YARD!” 

Commented the band: “It feels great to work with such experienced and dedicated people as the Nuclear Blast crew. Awesome!! It’s a label that’s founded by old school tape traders that obviously are good at what they do, since NB is one of the few big independent labels that manages not only to survive, but to expand in today’s difficult music climate. Peace, love & chemical warfare!” - 
GRAVEYARD….~
