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.

    I think it might be time for a new record.

    Yeah, agree with last statement on large venues, I won't ever wish seeing Graveyard playing on a festival anymore, only small clubs - that's perfect for these guys.

    Please don't play at a large venue that steals the melody out of your sound. Graveyard (playing live) belongs in a much smaller club.

    Quanto a gosto eu entendo Edu, mas o cara veio pra cima de mim com o único argumento em mãos de que eu escutava Lana, qual o sentindo disso? Honestamente, vou relaxar e beber uma cerveja em vez de me preocupar com a opinião alheia.

    Bom,eu ao menos apenas acho Lana Uma merda,mas não desconsidero seu argumento apenas por gostar dela,claro que você tem o direito de opinar a respeito do Black Sabbath.

    Hisingen Blues is such an essential cold weather album.

    Como se isso tivesse alguma porra a ver, esse seu "elitismo musical" já desqualifica seus argumentos esdrúxulos.

    Soa como o que o Black Sabbath deveria ter se tornado com um amadurecimento musical mais "drástico", em vez de tentar fazer mais do mesmo, e por isso é uma banda de uma potência tremenda! conseguir fazer isso espontaneamente.

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