12" MLP Graveyard "Into The Mausoleum" Out Soon

Julkarn and Bastard started fooling around with the whole GRAVEYARD thing a long time ago. They had always discussed about the possibility to develope a band / side-project in order to worship and show respect toward those bands they hailed since they were teenagers like Entombed, Asphyx, Dismember, Slayer, Celtic Frost, Edge Of Sanity, At The Gates, Venom, Carnage, Morbid Angel, Grave, or Unleashed. Both tried so many times to arrange something, but never seemed to be the right moment for it. In September 2007, Bastard and Julkarn got in contact with drummer Gusi from the band Undertaker (Now called Morbid Flesh). He is such a young guy compared to Julkarn and Bastard, but fortunately have the same musical taste concerning old school tradition and how Death Metal should be. GRAVEYARD entered a dirty garage up in the hills of Castelldefels and composed, arranged, rehearsed and recorded the songs included on "Into The Mausoleum". After 2 days of insanity, infamy and blasphemy, Bastard, Julkarn and Gusi unleashed 4 hymns of pure and unique Death Metal based on the late 80's and early 90's tradition, specially that one which used to come from Sweden. "Into The Mausoleum" was finished in October 2007 at Bastard's Moontower home Studio where growls, bass lines, fx and intros were recorded and mixed. We asked some friends to give us a helping hand so the famous Tattoo Master Roberto Giordano did an amazing album cover for us, our long time comrade Katu Marus created our mighty logo and finally, another good friend of the band, Oppi, did the cool retro myspace. A the end of 2007, SBE from the Black/Death Metal band Ered joined the band so GRAVEYARD completed the line-up. GRAVEYARD did their very first live appearance in Sabadell (Barcelona) on March 1st together with the mighty Obscure, Asfixia and the italian Thrashers Death Mechanism. Few days before, Black Seed Productions released “Into The Mausoleum” as an MCD (With Death’s “Zombie Ritual” as a bonus track) and 2 months after, Ars Funebris Records did the same on 100 hand numbered limited copies Tape with a free button. At the end of April, GRAVEYARD did some shows in Madrid (With serbian Black Metallers The Stone and Bloodoline), as well as destroyed Portugal’s infamous Barroselas Fest, where some other big acts like Nifelheim, Enslaved, Regurgitate, Brujeria and Fleshcrawl also played. Early on May 2008, GRAVEYARD played again in Barcelona (El Prat de Llobregat) together with the thrashers Fatal Injury. 2 weeks after, Antichristian Front Records released “Into The Mausoleum” on vinyl with a cool cover of Bolt Thrower’s immortal classic “Cenotaph” and a free poster. On July 3st, GRAVEYARD will open for the mighty thrashers FORBIDDEN in Barcelona. Later in October, we will headline one of the seasons at the Black Land Festival (Berlin – Germany) where some other bands like Protector, Minotaur, Manos or Morrigan also will play.
At the same time, there’s some releases schedule like our very first full lenght which is gonna be released through Black Seed Productions at the end of the year and 2 Splits with Deathevokation and Redimoni as well also this year 2008.
