What drummers in the music world have caught the ear of Axel Sjöberg, the man behind the skins in Sweden’s classic rock band GRAVEYARD? Holding the honors are Michael Tegza and H.P. Lovecraft and Brann Dailor of MASTODON.
Sjöberg goes into detail about what he admires about these drummers on his Modern Drummer blog. Read it at this location.
GRAVEYARD‘s second full-length album, “Hisingen Blues”, sold 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 48 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Hisingen Blues” entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 1. The CD, which was released in North America on April 19 via Nuclear Blast Records, was produced, recorded, and mixed in 100 percent analog by Don Alsterberg (JOSÉ GONZALES, JUNIP, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
