Editors’ Notes

Like Swedish psychedelic revivalists Dungen, Gothenburg’s proto-metal recreationists Graveyard excel at sounding like the 21st century never happened. Their sophomore studio album Hisingen Glues doesn’t depart from their 2007 eponymous debut, save for a tour-honed tautness in musicianship and better-crafted songs. “Ain’t Fit To Live Here” kickstarts hard-driving blues-rock under Joakim Nilsson inflecting like 1970 Ian Gillan in his lower register and 1969 Robert Plant in his higher wails. Eerie-sounding backwards vocals lead off “No Good, Mr Holden” hinting at the kind of occult trappings synonymous with Pentagram, especially when those sludgy riffs blast out of what could only be Orange amps – but Nilsson’s singing keeps things from sounding predictable with a performance that recalls the Groundhogs’ Tony McPhee and his cool restraint. “The Siren” builds momentum like a sonic comet fueled by a propulsive rhythm section and Nilsson musing on demons like he was Roky Erickson. Bonus track “Cooking Brew” successfully fuses psychedelia with blues.

Customer Reviews

Album's been out 2 hours... this page should be full by now.

Raw, soulful rock music is dead apparently - I should not be the first person to write a review for an album of this quality. Sorry to say it but I think my worst fears have come to pass: Rebecca Black will usher in a new era of ear-ball gouging pap, while great bands like this will disappear into the void. Congratulations, Music Industry: You've successfully sawn off the branch we all built our tree house on. Whatever.
Back to the jams!
Excellent play from all instruments involved - guitars, rhythms, vocals... production... what more could we Morlocks ask for? There is passion in these vocals that is so out of fashion it should've come back 'round again by now but alas, maybe the timing of all the remaining true ROCK bands is just... what it is.

Graveyard - you boys made my year. I've been waiting for this since I first heard the self-titled, suffice to say I'd rather my review be lost in a sea of others... never the less, this is what Rock Music should sound like right now - excellent job. Old souls come back from tomorrow...

UNREAL GOOD

Just buy this, it is unreal good and we need about a thousand more bands like this......great production, great music PERIOD. You will not hear a better record this year hands down.

BurnOne

If you get paid tomorrow, buy this record. If you have and an extra $10, buy this record. If you like Zepplin, Skynard and Muddy Waters, then I can't stress enough how much you NEED this Album. It's an Opus! Smoke to it!!!!!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A throwback rock band much in the vein of Witchcraft or Priestess, Gothenburg, Sweden's Graveyard formed in late 2006. Original members Joakim Nilsson (guitar and vocals), Truls Mörck (guitar and vocals), Rikard Edlund (bass), and Axel Sjöberg (drums) were moved by the legacy of giants such as Cream and Black Sabbath, and quickly recorded their first demo. Rather quickly thereafter, the band scored a dual distribution deal with both Tee Pee Records and Transubstans Records. Their debut album, simply...
