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.

Customer Reviews

I've been listening to this new release everyday for a month now and it just keeps getting better.
Koukol
The band released a stellar self titled debut album and then Hisngen Blues followed putting them on the map and earning them much deserved success.
Don de Leaumont
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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

A new Graveyard album in 2012 was like getting an early Christmas present. When the band announced that they were releasing Lights Out in November, I was a bit nervous. After hearing them in 2011 for the first time, Graveyard quickly became one of my favorite bands. The band released a stellar self titled debut album and then Hisngen Blues followed putting them on the map and earning them much deserved success. While I was so happy for the band, I was a bit nervous about how this would affect their follow up album. Would this level of success steer the band in a different direction and find the band compromising what they were about?

I took a deep breath, crossed my fingers, and clicked the play button. As "An Industry of Murder" filled the room, I immediately breathed a sigh of relief. Not only was this the Graveyard that I love so much but it sounded like a refined and even more matured sound. "Slow Motion Countdown" has the band dipping into that somber groove and showcasing the smoky, bluesy rasp of singer/guitarist Joakim Nilsson. That same somber, haunting vibe is found in the song "Hard Times Lovin'" which has this dark, brooding Neko Case meets Black Sabbath kind of vibe. I love it that Graveyard is not afraid to mellow out and explore this side of music as they do it really well. Graveyard also showcases a more punchy, intense vibe on heavier songs like "The Suits, The Law, and the Uniform", "Goliath", and "Endless Night." These heavier songs also seem to embody a soul and emotion that some of the heavier songs on past albums just didn't have. This isn't a knock on those songs. It's just that these songs seem to have a level of intensity and dynamics that make Graveyard sound more seasoned and comfortable in their skin.
