Graveyard are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of Swedish style death metal, d-beat and doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls" which was released by Pulverised Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing of the guitars, as for the synths which are only utilized briefly they add another dimension of darkness to the music without being a lead instrument.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine Swedish style death metal, doom and d-beat together with some dark sounding melodies to create a sound of their own while the lead guitars are very dark and chaotic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams while the lyrics cover dark, occult and morbid themes, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it that has the 90's style death metal feeling.
In my opinion Graveyard are a very great sounding death/doom metal/d-beat hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls" and "Ritual". RECEMMONDED BUY.
