Continuing our two city coverage after Milwaukee, The Missing Link Tour thundered through New York City’s Central Park with Sweden’s protometal quartet Graveyard, with whom I interviewed that afternoon. Riding out the last of the day’s west-falling sunlight was Clutch, strong and heavy as ever in their 20 plus year career. As the night darkened, Mastodon took stage and the arboreal amphitheater, at first a simple stage nestled into a pleasant grove, now became much more ominous and powerful. It looked as if the trees were growing up and inward, reaching down from their stoic and gnarled height. The music cried a cacophony through the limbs and branches for acres and acres through the park. I’m sure neither the 5th Avenue neighbors nor the multitude of smitten couples out on The Lake in rowboats were too pleased. Actually, that sounds like a fucking rad date.

Read on here for the review and pictures.

Show Review: The Missing Link Tour at The Eagles Ballroom, Milwaukee

The progressive/stoner metal lineup that The Missing Link Tour provides is a show that one would be remiss to miss. As the crowd filled the Eagles Ballroom, the air began to smell like an over heated hemp store in the middle of a humid summer day. The perfect environment for the evening’s festivities. Graveyard, Clutch, and Mastodon are generational bands that bring together the past, present, and future into one killer evening of auricular enlightenment.

Mastodon cancels Oklahoma City show. Nine ravaging tornadoes follow.

Obviously, Mother Nature was pissed that Mastodon cancelled, as they haven’t played there since ‘012. Before that, ’09 in Tulsa, OK. More infuriated were the ticket holders, who’s refund wasn’t immediately issued. The promoter originally wanted to honor the tickets at a future date, one far from equivalent. After she heard this, Ma dropped car-drowning flood waters, and they reconsidered. All tickets from The Diamond Ballroom show will be refunded.

Two things Mastodon should learn from this: First, don’t leave Oklahoma without Mom’s permission. Second, ask your previous tour mates Dethklok how to withstand tornadoes, as seen here.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXFO-gR2ddU[/youtube]

Fortunately, no lives were lost in the capricious weather. If you feel some extra metal in your pocket, Red Cross relief funds can be donated here.

Thanks to StrongBeard for the inside info.

Stay tuned here and our @MetalRiot Instagram for a very special two-night coverage of this tour as it rolls through Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Central Park, New York City late this month.

Bring out your bongs and dim the lights for the Swedish hard-rock band, Graveyard as they decide to illuminate us with their latest record, “Hisingen Blues”.

The album is surely going to impress anyone with a hunger for a throwback to classic bands such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and many more. Joakim Nilson (guitar, vocals) returns with band members Jonatan Ramm (guitar, vocals), Rikard Edlund (bass), and Alex Sjoberg (drums) to deliver a psychedelic, hard-rock hell of a ride.

Get the full review of the hell ride right here.

“Hisingen Blues”, the second studio album by Swedish classic rockers Graveyard, has debuted on the following three Billboard album charts for sales of over 1,000 units according to Nielsen SoundScan:  #48 – Heatseekers (Top New Artists), #140 – Top Independent Current albums, and #46 – Current Hard Music Albums.  The album officially entered the Swedish album chart at No. 1 in late March.

“Hisingen Blues” was produced, recorded, and mixed in 100% analog by Don Alsterberg (Gonzales, Junip, Soundtrack Of Our Lives, The International Noise Conspiracy) at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Graveyard Unveil New Album “Hisingen Blues” Artwork

Posted by Christine on Tuesday, February 15, 2011 at 7:43 PM (PST)

Psychedelic doom rock band Graveyard from Gothenburg, Sweden have unveiled the artwork for their second full-length studio release, “Hisingen Blues.”

The band shares details about the album artist, Ulf Lundén:

“We wanted a cover that wasn’t your average rock/metal cover, and our friend Ulf Lundén was just the right guy to do it. We had seen his work for his own band, Bombus, and we knew he had a wild imagination. So we just let him loose. He put us up against the green screen, took his photos and that was that. A couple of weeks later, he showed us what he had done. We were astonished by his work, a perfectionist indeed. We got what we asked for, a cover that isn’t average. Rich with details, swamp/jungle feeling, weirdness and a lurking evil feel to it.”

“Hisingen Blues” was produced, recorded, and mixed in 100% analog by Don Alsterberg at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden and will be released in Europe March 25 and in North America April 19.
