Into the Mausoleum

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (4 Votes)

There I was, doing my usual trawl around the vagaries of MySpace-land for want of some new underground phenomenon to blow my eardrums into next week, when I came across Graveyard. These guys only formed this year, and released this demo in October (although the idea for the band had been around for a long time before that, as have the band members in various different bands). Basically, although these guys hail from Spain, they tear arse with their sparkling brand of Swedish Death Metal, paying homage to the likes of early Entombed, Dismember, Grave and Carnage along the way.

Sure, it's a demo so it's easy enough to hold your attention for a small amount of tracks (there are only 4 'real' tracks, with the intro and outro consisting of sound-clips and effects), but these guys certainly have the abilities and talent to jump straight into an album very shortly judging by the music contain within this little fucker. Graveyard have a great package - badass riffs coated in a thick, bassy distortion flail from your speakers, chugging and clattering with the drums and sick vocal work to get your blood pumping just like the old days. There's even the 'ethereal' melodies that Entombed and Dismember patented nearly twenty years ago, played just how you expect 'em, in all the right places. Hell, even the artwork is killer!

For those who like to support the up-and-comers, these guys certainly stood out enough for me to take notice with their monster-sized riffs, and overall old-school attitude. Great fun for all the family.
