A throwback rock band much in the vein of Witchcraft or Priestess, Gothenburg, Sweden's Graveyard formed in late 2006. Original members Joakim Nilsson (guitar and vocals), Truls Mrck (guitar and vocals), Rikard Edlund (bass), and Axel Sjoberg (drums) were moved by the legacy of giants such as Cream and Black Sabbath, and quickly recorded their first demo. Rather quickly thereafter, the band scored a dual distribution deal with both Tee Pee Records and Transubstans Records. Their debut album, simply entitled Graveyard, was released in early 2008. Following the recording of said collection, the band saw the replacement of guitarist Sjoberg with Jonathan Ramm, after the former called it a day. After touring with bands like Witchcraft, Clutch, and CKY, the band came back with a second album, Hisingen Blues, in 2011.
