When Swedish doom/stoner outfit NORRSKEN split up in 2000 it gave birth to two new bands. While one remaining member founded WITCHCRAFT, the rest of the band went on to form something really rare, something obviously unique – an honest sonic feeling that is now known as GRAVEYARD. A group that stands for no boundaries, no limits at all. Playing all sorts of rockish music makes GRAVEYARD stand out from the crowd. Be it classic rock, blues, jazz, folk – you name it – the authentic quintet makes it sound real at any time. With wide influences spreading throughout different genres, GRAVEYARD always stay top notch in what they do – giving the listener a broadened spectrum of emotions, moods & feelings. BLACK SABBATH meets ROLLING STONES meets LED ZEPPELIN meets JANIS JOPLIN … the list could go on longer and longer… While other bands just count on their neo satanic attitude or revived old school imagery, GRAVEYARD deliver it all along with stunning tunes that take you on a journey to a long lost decade of true musicianship.
The band Spiders was formed in February 2010 in Gothenburg, Sweden, by John Hoyles (ex-guitarist
of Witchcraft) and Axel Sjöberg (drummer of Graveyard) along with singer Ann-Sofie Hoyles and bass
player Matteo Gambacorta. In August 2010 the band recorded their first recordings with renowned
producer Don Ahlsterberg. The songs became released as a 4-track EP via Crusher Records (Sweden)
in January 2011 but also as one 7-inch single via Kemado Records (USA) and another 7-inch via Valley
