Yes, I know what you're thinking. "Minkaro's started a thread, and it isn't about flowery keyboard-laden European cheese metal?"

I know, it's a lot to take in. Maybe go and have a lie down to try and get over the shock.

Anyway, Graveyard Shift are/were a side project of Henrik and Jani from Sonata Arctica, in which Henrik attempts to sing. They play what I am informed is melodic death metal (although it sound suspiciously like thrash to me).

http://www.mikseri.net/artists/graveyardshift.50019.php is the link to the place you can go and stream their delightful tunes, and even download them if you're so inclined. My personal favourite is "Goodbye" but they're all good. The highlight for me is the drumming, which is apparently done by a machine (so it probably doesn't count).

Now go forth and listen to a band that may or may not actually exist anymore.

Sounds suspiciously thrashy to me too...pity, I'm not really a fan of thrash vocals, but the rest sounds cool. Although the keyboard stuff is way too quiet.

Graveyard Shift?

That was one of the best episodes of Spongebob.
...I like metal.
