Graveyard Posts "Hisingen Blues" Track-By-Track Breakdown

Gothenburg, Sweden based act Graveyard has offered a track-by-track commentary on the nine songs comprising the band's new studio album, "Hisingen Blues." The 100% analog recorded release will be out in Europe on March 25th. The band's breakdown can be found below.

Ain’t Fit To Live Here: Classic blues riffs, just harder and on speed, and filtered through 30-40 years of rock history. Lyrics - frustration and the feeling that you hate everybody.

No Good, Mr. Holden: Introspective lyrics. A doomy and gentle song at the same time. The song melodies really stand out on this one.

Hisingen Blues: A fast hard song about living fast and hard. Not your general song structure. Influenced by many different types of music.

Uncomfortably Numb: Jokingly, we've called it the power ballad of the album. Lyrics speaks for themselves. A touch of southern rock. Suitable for making love to. Maybe.

Buying Truth (Tack Och Förlåt): A bit more modern if you will, but hard and primitive. Get-drunk-and-fight-it-out vibe. Lyrics about nervous, fake, media/music industry people, and other asshole musicians that haven't got anything to bring to the table.

Longing: Something we'd been jamming on for a long time before we went in to the studio. But it was also very much written in the studio. Don (producer) had a lot of ideas for this one and we had kind help from a couple of friends, also. It's a nice break with a very different instrumental on the album.

Ungrateful Are The Dead: Title explains most of it. It's not easy being alive. Personal lyrics. A song that we recorded a couple of times but never really were satisfied with until we made this version. Heavy. Maybe the most metal song on the album.

RSS: Live fast die. A party song with troublesome lyrics. And unusual backing vocals.

The Siren: Slow swamp blues with classic rock outbreaks and a really intense outro. Lyrics deals with a nightmare about Roky Erickson.
