I’m realizing that I haven’t posted nearly enough Graveyard. These Swedish dudes are fucking incredible and their aggressive, bluesy brand of rock makes their 2011 release, Hisingen Blues, my top album of last year by far. If you like anything from Black Sabbath to Led Zeppelin to Deep Purple to Janis Joplin to AC/DC to Hendrix, I really just don’t see how you couldn’t like it. I’m biased, but I feel like this album has everything (flawless riffs, flawless percussion, extremely unique and badass rock vocals, beyond memorable songwriting, lyrics about Lucifer) that makes a classic album. I guarantee I’ll be 65 and still headbanging to these guys.
If you haven’t heard them before, I’d highly recommend checking out the entire album. If that’s too much work, at least check out the track above (“Rss”) and this one, “The Siren,” which I posted an awesome live video of last year and is my absolute favorite track of 2011.
