Yupp, it’s November already and you know what that means: it’s “End of the Year” lists time! For metalheads especially, it’s time for the latest round of DECIBEL Magazine’s “Top 40 Extreme Albums of 2011,” which features none other than GRAVEYARD at the #11 slot. No reason why Hisingen Blues shouldn’t be there; it’s a gawdamn extreme dose of pure analog gold. “AC/DC and Them Crooked Vultures took home the past two Grammy awards for ‘Best hard Rock’ album,” begins DECIBEL Editor-in-Chief Albert Mudrian’s write-up. “Too bad everyone in Swedish hesher crew GRAVEYARD is under 60 years old, because then the Recording Academy might actually give a shit about the best hard rock album of 2011.” And while lists like these “makes nobody happy” according to DECIBEL Managing Editor Andrew Bonazelli, aren’t you at least curious about what other thirty-nine metal albums made the cut? Sure you are. Get busy and order Issue No. 87 (Lamb Of God cover) here. To save the uninitiated from the burning shame of complete ignorance, GRAVEYARD (whose friends call them “The Evil Allman Brothers”) have an upcoming headlining U.S. trek with openers Radio Moscow starting in January. If you miss this, there’s little hope for you actually being in the know about great music. Seriously, bro.
