From a disbanded motley crue of musicians named Norrsken, came the birth of two hard rock bands from Gothenburg, Sweden, Witchcraft and this week’s guests on the show, Graveyard.

In their short existence, Graveyard have managed to achieve a significant stamp on the music scene featuring in the ever famous Rolling stone magazine after their first appearance in North America at Southwest Music Festival. Although many would believe that this kind of exposure would see them catapult to success overnight, the Graveyard guys gained their success through grueling touring schedules across the world. These commitments would see their  produce the critically acclaimed second album Hisingen blues released on their new label Nuclear Blast in 2011.

This album alone would elevate Graveyard into a whole new class of touring, supporting grunge heavy weights Soundgarden on a world tour and also the next generation festival headliner, Clutch.

Graveyard hit the ground running and came back a year after with ‘Lights Out’, however, it would resonate the sounds of trouble within the band capturing a different vibe to their previous releases.

When founding member Rikard Edlund leaves the band in 2014, Graveyard didn’t look too far to find his replacement, former member Truls Mörck. Known for his guitar work in the early days of the band’s existence, Truls stepped in to help out on the bass work for the new album and has now become a permanent fixture in the Graveyard line-up.

After several months in the studio and many of the tracks in their final stages, the Graveyard boys decided to take a break and hit the North American shores supporting Mastodon and Clutch on the ‘Missing Link’ tour. With some final touches completed the new album was ready.
