Sweden Rock FestivalGRAVEYARD COMING TO SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL 2012!

Of the numerous Swedish bands waving the flag for 70s hard rock, Graveyard must be the very hottest at present. The eponymous debut of these Gothenburgers arrived in 2007 and was met by a favorable reception.

However, that pales in comparison to the sensation stirred by its sequel, ”Hisingen blues”, in spring 2011. The album was a huge success and was bombarded with superlatives by ridiculously unanimous reviewers. Graveyard came off as the band no one could resist, with their bleak, unspeakably genuine style rooted in the likes of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and psychedelic overlords Blue Cheer and Captain Beyond.

In short: it’s the biggest Swedish sensation of 2011 that will be appearing at SRF in 2012.

Roskilde Festival DenmarkROSKILDE ADDS 4 SCANDINAVIAN ACTS TO THE LINE UP

Even though the Roskilde bill is already up all over the world, they continue to deliver new acts. This week’s music package is a true Scandinavian rock adventure in different colours, which is a true treat for music lovers this summer.

GRAVEYARD (S) shuts up all critical voices who have ever claimed that rock is dead and buried. The Swedish band finds inspiration in heavy rock from the 70s where stoned grooves and heavy riffs roar along with vocalist Joakim Nilsson’s excellent and powerful vocals.

LOVE SHOP (DK) is ready to play Roskilde Festival for the sixth time. Having lost Hilmer Hassig and Henrik Hall, Jens Unmack is the only original band member left. But anyone who has heard one of Love Shop’s concerts during this spring has seen a singer who lively and life-affirmingly steps out of the shadows. Love Shop’s pop magic has always been greater than the individual members.

NEXT LIFE (N) has been called both ’gameboy metal’ and ’chip-core’. The strangely precise descriptions make sense as the Norwegians combine fast and scorching metal with Asian avant-garde electronica and computer game beats. The guitar-synth-drums combo has been used several times before, but never in the manner of Next Life.

THE RAVEONETTES (DK) are constantly on the hunt for the primal source of rock. With this year’s critically acclaimed album Raven in the Grave, the duo takes a step in a new direction. Here 80s-esque dark synths and melancholic guitar crunch live side by side with the rock’n’roll that started the whole story of Denmark’s biggest rock export ever. Roskilde Festival welcomes home The Raveonettes.

High Voltage Festival LondonNEW ACTS ANNOUNCED FOR METAL HAMMER STAGE

Four new bands on the Metal Hammer stage! Joining the line up are:  Swedish genre-straddlers GRAVEYARD who don’t just count on their neo satanic attitude or revived old school imagery but deliver it all along with stunning tunes that take you on a journey to a long lost decade of true musicianship.

UK metalers SYLOSIS whose critically acclaimed debut album “Concussion Of An Age” proved them to be a stunning live act and a jewel in the UK metal crown.

Cambridge 5 piece THE TREATMENT who grew up on a diet of AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. The young band showcases all the best elements of classic blues rock.

Belgium’s TRIGGERFINGER who create a diverse and compelling amalgam of influences: alternative rock, blues, stoner riffs and garage rock sensibilities.
