Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the Swedish Metal band who have their own brand of beer in Sweden, and have won a Swedish Grammy for Best Hard Rock album, and landed on three Billboard charts. Lights Out reflects the diversity of their writing. From the apocalyptic, riff-driven 'An Industry of Murder,' to the melancholy 'Slow Motion Countdown' and psychedelic 'Endless Night,' the album shows them ranging from ace rock lords to contemplative balladeers. Recorded entirely analogue, Lights Out sears with social commentary; frontman Joakim Nilsson's versatile grit; and guitarist Jonatan Ramm's instantly memorable riffs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great blues/psych album ...... November 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Here's a new band that has the great classic sound of those heavy 1970's psych/metal/blues groups ....the vocalist even evokes a bit of Peter Green's vocal sound,when he isn't belting the songs out in a throaty Mark Lanegan-like snarl.

This album's lyrics deal with all the evil deals coming down in these trying times. Although I'm not sure I agree with every viewpoint here,this surely makes this release even more like early blues/metal (say Black Sabbath's "protest" lyrics....without the downtuned sound).Think Fleetwood Mac's "Green Manalishi" with antigreed/antiwar lyrics.....nice doomy atmosphere with classic electric blues riffs with B3 organ sounds along the way too.

I may like their last release a bit better.....but this one's no slouch,and ,hell,I've only listened through once so far(could be a grower....ya know?).

If any of this strikes a chord in your likes....you really should give 'em a try.

Great music to drive fast to....if you can recall the days of hot musclecars....then stomp it and feel the power as the highway's white lines flow under your machine!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - Graveyard gets a little darker November 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Swedish retro hard rock band Graveyard didn't waste any time getting their third album out. Lights Out is the band's second release in two years and second release since signing to Nuclear Blast. Graveyard's 2011 album Hisingen Blues was a major breakout, and their tours were very successful, so perhaps this is just a case of striking while the iron is hot. Whatever the case, Lights Out is a highly anticipated album not only for Graveyard's fans, but for just about anyone enjoying the recent revival of the old school heavy rock sound.

Behind a cover that looks like a pessimist's take on Uriah Heep's classic Look at Yourself cover, Lights Out finds Graveyard picking up more or less where they left off with Hisingen Blues. Graveyard still worships at the altar of the almighty riff, and they still sound like refugees from 1970. Across three albums now the band has channeled the vintage sound of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and to a lesser extent Cream and Atomic Rooster. Lights Out feels darker overall though, and not just the cover artwork. The lyrics seem more cynical, the riffs are heavier and the overall tone tilts more towards Sabbath than Zeppelin this time around. The album swings from up-tempo rockers like "Seven Seven" and "Goliath" to slower, more somber numbers like "Slow Motion Countdown" and "Hard Times Lovin'" with ease, maintaining the same spooky, fuzzed-out vibe throughout.

Joakim Nilsson's unique vocals continue to be a highlight of Graveyard's sound, as do his and Jonatan La Rocca Ramm's guitar work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid December 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not the strongest of the 3 records by Graveyard, this one ironically enough on Nuclear Blast seems to be their most mellow of offerings, the first album totally rocked, Hisingen Blues has its moments also, this one just has too many ballads for me, I like the rocking songs from Graveyard.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's time to rock out, with your... December 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I only came across this band in September 2013, when they supported Soundgarden at the O2 Academy in Brixton, London, and I was instantly spellbound by these Swedish rockers.

I initially thought they'd been around for about 30 or 40 years but have since discovered that this is not the case and are fairly new when compared with the band they were supporting - the aforementioned Chris Cornell et al.

Sure, they look like rejects from the 1970s or 80s when the New Wave of British Heavy Metal exploded onto the scene, but their music is far from it. Yes, they must take their influences from the likes of Black Sabbath, Focus or Led Zeppelin (who doesn't get the Led out once in a while?) but their style is pure Graveyard, and whilst you might think they are referencing music from another era, they are not doing it cheesily (think The Darkness, whom I detest) or with style (think Wolfmother, whom I love) - this is balls-out rock n' roll of today.

There are some instant classics on this CD - An Industry of Murder, Goliath and Fool in the End are my favourites, but I can listen to them all over and over.

I'll be grabbing their other CDs pronto - this is one band I need more of. So if you like deep riffs, hard-ass drums, gravelly vocals and all-round head pounding music to wake the dead, I urge you to get on the Graveyard shift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep, Graveyard is awesome. January 22, 2013
By Bobby-p
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Graveyard's previous album, Hisingen Blues, was really killer. And their newest album, Lights Out, keeps the awesome momentum going! The songwriting is great, the production is rockin (my only minor critique is that the drums could be a little louder in the mix, I mean this drummer is awesome so pump him up!) The really made some cinematic-sounding tracks on this album- the first track reminds me of some hard rockin 70's Goblin soundtracks! There are some really moving vocal performances on this album as well, the singer really shows his range on this album. The songs are a great mix of hard rock, metal and old school blues, making their own brand of old school hard rock that sounds fresh and new. If you were a fan of the last album, you'll dig this one. If you like Sabbath and Zeppelin and early '70s hard rock and hard blues, you'll dig this album. Graveyard rocks!!
