...For those of us who still light the spliff and enjoy trading barbs about the Mothership full of Cyloptic Mars masseuses...

Graveyard

"Graveyard"

(Tee Pee Records) 

There aren’t many psychedelic rock bands active in the 21st Century. Probably because most of them have stopped smoking weed and wearing moccasins and believing in space aliens and sex kittens. But for those of us who still light the spliff and enjoy trading barbs about the Mothership full of Cyloptic Mars masseuses there’s the music of Graveyard, a solid outfit of acid rockers unleashed. "Evil Ways" evokes the best of Corrosion of Conformity without the overproduced quality to wipe the gutter off the track.

 

Graveyard is a more refined variation on a much-underrated genre, never more so than on joints like "Blue Soul" and the literarily-titled "As The Years Pass By, The Hours Bend." Indeed they do, and Graveyard pristinely capture those grungy feelings that lurk in every sentient guttersnipe to ever grow their hair out or walk the lonely Avenue.

 This album is truly Satan’s Finest and anybody who misses the melodious wickedness and twenty-minute guitar maeslstrom of Sleep and the like will dig on this album like a fresh grave. All the elements are configured for a stony night of music appreciation. Dig it, baby. Dig it!—Bob Freville
