Since their arrival in 1990 as the self-proclaimed “most evil band in the world,” Sweden’s Opeth is one of the most influential heavy metal bands to emerge from Northern Europe. Though their musical beginning was rooted in occult-saturated, doomy death metal, as evidenced by 1995’s Orchid and the following year’s Morningrise, by the time they issued 1998’s globally acclaimed My Arms, Your Hearse, they were already threading progressive elements into their music. The shapeshifting experimentation had just begun. As the band’s individuals grew musically and personnel shifted, their approach and sonic palette expanded. 2001’s groundbreaking Blackwater Park drew heat from purist death metal fans and critics while global prog metal fans championed it. They hit the international charts for the first time with 2003’s Damnation, though not at home. By the time they issued the foundational fusion of death and prog metal with 2005’s Ghost Reveries, they hit Sweden’s Top 10 as well. In the second decade of the aughts, Opeth pursued a full-on prog-cum-folk-metal direction on 2011’s Heritage, an album that signified the band’s long-expected departure from the death metal aesthetic; they underscored it with an exclamation point on 2015’s Pale Communion, which sold more than 13,000 copies during its release week in the United States

A throwback rock band much in the vein of Witchcraft or Priestess, Gothenburg, Sweden’s Graveyard formed in late 2006. Original members Joakim Nilsson (guitar and vocals), Truls Mörck (guitar and vocals), Rikard Edlund (bass), and Axel Sjöberg (drums) were moved by the legacy of giants such as Cream and Black Sabbath, and quickly recorded their first demo. Soon thereafter, the band scored a dual distribution deal with both Tee Pee Records and Transubstans. Their debut album, simply titled Graveyard, was released in early 2008, after which Sjöberg was replaced by guitarist Jonatan Larocca-Ramm. After touring with groups like Witchcraft, Clutch, and CKY, the band came back with a second album, the Nuclear Blast-issued Hisingen Blues, in 2011. The following year saw the release of Lights Out, with Innocence & Decadence arriving in 2015. In September 2016, the band announced their breakup. ~ Chris True, Rovi
