Graveyard are another amazing little band out of Sweden, (flowering from the ashes of former stoner/doom outfit Norrsken) and they play some really organic-sounding music. Their 2nd offering, Hisingen Blues recalls some classic sounds...Allman Brothers, Robin Trower Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Led Zeppelin sprinkle this album, with some psychedelic atmosphere in there for good measure. It's bluesy as fuck, and just plain rocks. Those who consider themselves fans of the analog sound, 70's sounding purists even, will be pleased.
This album is noticeably a step up from their debut, the vocals are just perfect, the guitars are fantastic, and the songwriting has improved as well. I'm addicted to it...and need to see them live ASAP.
Just a heads up for when you become as hopelessly hooked on this band as I am, their t-shirts are really hard to find unless you're lucky enough to live in Europe, especially Sweden and Germany (lucky bastards!)...but I figure that might change soon.
