Biography

There is more than one artist known as Graveyard:

1. Graveyard is a band from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Joakim Nilsson, Rikard Edlund (both formerly of Norrsken), Axel Sjöberg, and Truls Mörck formed Graveyard in 2006. When Norrsken disbanded in 2000, guitarist Magnus Pelander went on to form doomy folk metal act Witchcraft and Nilsson and Edlund joined Albatros, a growly blues rock band whose lineup also included Sjöberg on drums. Initially they considered Albatros a hobby project, but after five years the members began taking their music more seriously and had grown dissatisfied with the direction their sound had taken. When Albatros broke up, Nilsson and Edlund decided that for their next venture, they would head back towards their roots as musicians and songwriters. Nilsson explains, “I am a singer, but in Albatross I only played guitar. Rikard played guitar but he is a bass player. We also wanted a more straightforward sound.”

Together with Sjöberg and guitarist/singer Truls Mörck they began practicing as Graveyard. Upon their initial formation, Graveyard quickly recorded a two track demo, played a total of three shows, and began planning for a full-length album with Swedish boutique label, Transubstans Records. In the meantime, they posted a demo of some of their material on MySpace. Songs from the band’s Myspace caught the ear of Tony Presedo, founder of TeePee Records. Their self-titled debut album was recorded by Don Ahlsterberg and released in early 2008. On the recording sessions’ completion, Truls Mörck was replaced by guitarist Jonatan Ramm. The debut album received generally good reviews. Graveyard performed at the 2008’s South by Southwest Music Festival.

    Uncomfortably Numb just might be one of the greatest songs ever.

    Ain’t no light in my tunnel, but the gold tooth in the devil’s smile. I walked a wide road a thousand times, it never led me anywhere...

    Those guys are the best band of the last 20 years. They are already Classic Rock. [2]

    Been a die hard-fan of these guys since 2011, now finally this year I'll probably have my first chance of seeing them perform live. I'm so stoked!

    Awesome show last night with Bombus in St. Louis. Getting to hang around after to meet the band and have my vinyl copy of Hisingen Blues signed was icing on the cake. Top notch dudes.

    I used to listen non-stop to these guys, then i saw them live at pinkpop 2013. Somehow I stopped listening to them after that, until recently to rediscover them :) forgot how awesome they are live.

    That feeling when you haven't listened to Graveyard for quite a while, and then get back to listening to them. It's somewhat like discovering them again, just remembering again exactly why they are my favoriteband :)
