Graveyard - Graveyard

Posted by Haggard - February 5th, 2012


A short review for Graveyard's debut album "Graveyard".

This album was released in 2007, which is a bit surprising when you listen to it. It sounds very much like old 70's rock and if you see promo pictures of the band members, they look like they are time traveller's from the 70's as well. Now, what's all this about?

The alubm opener "Evil Ways" starts off with a small drum "solo" (well, not a solo like Judas Priest's "Painkiller", but you only hear the drums in the first few seconds). When the guitars set in you instantly feel like you where like you are listening to some old Black Sabbath or Led Zepplin stuff. The sound is just that amazing and mindblowing. The rest of the song is decent rock and overall, it's a good opener.

The other songs continue our journey back to the 70's. Where are my bell-bottoms?!

However, if you are looking for amazing 70's like soli, then this album isn't for you. Now, the guitar work is great; the riffs are all very cool. But they didn't include too many soli in their songs. "Blue Soul" is the only song that comes to my mind which has an extended solo at the end.

The only thing I don't like about this album is it's lenght. Only 9 songs are on this album, with a total running time of 39:40. I know, this is pretty much the length you got from the early 70's rock bands. But you don't have to copy the feeling of that time to this extend.

Anyway, "Graveyard" is a very good album. In fact, it's so good that I can't even give tips for songs to check out, they are all that great. However, I have to give "Blue Soul" a special mention here. It's a song you really woudln't expect after you heard the first half of the album.

Rating:
I give this album 9 out of 10 stars. The only reason why I don't give a full 10 is the length.

Track list:
01. "Evil Ways" - 3:28
02. "Thin Line" - 5:24
03. "Lost in Confusion" - 3:23
04. "Don't Take Us for Fools" - 4:02
05. "Blue Soul" - 6:17
06. "Submarine Blues" - 2:25
07. "As the Years Pass By, the Hours Bend" - 4:41
08. "Right Is Wrong" - 4:27
09. "Satan's Finest" - 5:31

Songs to check out:
I wrote "i can't even get tips for songs to check out", but I will try anyway:
I already mentioned "Blue Soul", but this song isn't very representative for the LP.
"Submarine Blues" is a very short song and I think if you listen to it you get a very good idea of what to expect from this album.

Irgendwie will ich dich voll beschimpfen!

Aber nur wenn du hinterherschimpfst!

Beschimpf mich nicht, du Arsch, sonst schimpf ich dir eine, dass es sich gewaschen hat! >:(

That was so senseless of Coreghost. :\ Besides, what does hinterherschimpfst mean?

About the album, I think the length is long enough. :P But when I see "Submarine Blues", I see the lack.

Oh boy, I really don't know how I should translate "hinterherschimpfen", haha. She just said: "I want to bitch at you, but only if you bitch at me after I bitched at you".
