GRAVEYARD - Hisingen Blues
GRAVEYARD - Hisingen Blues

What drummers in the music world have caught the ear of Axel Sjöberg, the man behind the skins in Sweden’s classic rock band GRAVEYARD?  Holding the honors are Michael Tegza and H.P. Lovecraft and Brann Dailor of Mastodon.


Sjöberg goes into detail about what he admires about these drummers on his Modern Drummer blog.  Read his write-up here.


Hisingen Blues, GRAVEYARD’s second studio album, was produced, recorded, and mixed in 100% analog by Don Alsterberg (Gonzales, Junip, Soundtrack Of Our Lives, The International Noise Conspiracy) at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.  The album debuted on three Billboard album charts (#48 – Heatseekers, #140 – Top Independent Current albums, and #46 – Current Hard Music Albums) and officially entered the Swedish album chart at No. 1 in late March.

Analog freaks can order Hisingen Blues on clear blue vinyl at the Nuclear Blast USA’s webshop.  The CD version is also available here.


GRAVEYARD are confirmed to play this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, a four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee.
