Graveyard are a relatively new band hailing from Sweden bringing back a very old sound to our ears. Hisingen Blues is their second album of absolute classic blues rock heaven. This is hard rock with a heavy side of blues and a hint of psychedelic rock thrown in for good measure. Dirty guitars, dirty vocals, Graveyard are stuck in the 70's and it hasn't sounded better in the modern age than it does here.
Nine great songs of heavy bass guitar and Robert Plant-style howling, there is no possibility of listening to Hisingen Blues without feeling the soul of the music and tapping your foot along to the beat. Right from the off, "Ain't Fit To Live Here" is the perfect up-tempo opener for this addictive album that should feel more at home on a turntable than in a CD player. Each instrument brings its own feel to the album, culminating in a truly great album for hard rock and blues lovers.
Last song on the album "The Siren" is without exaggeration, six minutes of near-perfection that sums Hisingen Blues up in one and puts it to bed. Graveyard might not be a widely-known band, but with this album have delivered a bolt out of the blue that would be criminal to let pass without hearing. A true treat from a band with an authentic sound like none other for many years.
