Aug 31, 2011The title track of this album finds Graveyard at their most rip-roaring, offering a thunderous riff and some stinging guitar soloing. Other tracks throw little stylistic tweaks (background vocals on "Buying Truth [Tack & Förlåt]") into the mix, but the basic formula stays the same.
Aug 31, 2011There's not too much to Hisingen Blues when all is said and done, but more than ever, it feels like Graveyard has its own identity, delivering a version of heavy blues rock with so much attention to detail that it stands out far apart from the band's more modern-sounding peers.

Sep 11, 2011Thursday, September 8th, 2011, around 3:30 PM: I'm walking home from school, I passed by some local record store, there was a piece of paper says 'You can pick any of those CDs for $6'. Hisingen Blues was one of them. "It sounds like a Blue Cheer album" the guy in the record shop says, so I decided to buy it; it's cheap, supposedly good so, why not?
Thursday, September 8th, 2011, around 4:00 PM: I decided to play the CD, it started playing. "This sounds like Led Zeppelin, holy **** Unlike The Raconteurs who also sound like Zep, This album is full of energy, loud guitars and gives you that wonderful groovy shivers, it's everything I ever asked for. By track 5 I realized that this has some of coolest guitar riffs ever. And then Longing came, which fits perfectly as the soundtrack for some medieval-based movie. Ungrateful Are the Dead came next. "Those riffs again!" I thought, not that it's a bad thing, though. And then, at some moment of this song comes an awesome guitar solo just to make this song laterally awesome. *3 minutes of jamming to RSS*
The Siren started as a really meh-ish song but as the chorus started it was becoming slowly a song I would hear from Led Zeppelin (again) and I like that.

I played the album again and I appreciated that Uncomfortably Numb's last minute's sheer beauty. Also.. I could actually focus on the guitars in RSS, pretty cool, I have to say.
