I’m not sure how many of you have actually made the effort to check out Sweden’s Graveyard since my rave review of Hinsingen Blues back on March. If you did read the review and it got you into this amazing band, then you’ll be happy to know that they are touring the U.S. starting January 12th. If you have yet to latch on to Graveyard, then you are doing yourself a great injustice. Just to give you an idea of what they sound like, here is a short blurb from my review.
The hard rocking blues sound they have is very reminiscent of Led Zeppelin with some Sabbath love, a tinge of Deep Purple and the soul of The Jimmy Hendrix Experience. I might even go so far as say they have a pinch of Steppenwolf and Grateful Dead in their influential bag of tricks.
If you dig the sounds of yesteryear, then you’ll surely enjoy Hinsingen Blues. Check out the video below (after the fold) of the title track and then check out the tour dates to see if they are coming to a venue near you. If they are…SEE THEM!
