Thousand Swords - completely unique and captures the spirit perfectly.
Also i can't say anyone has really come close to replicating that album.
Cover art is also brilliant.

Love it or hate it, the cover art IS iconic (personally one of my favorite covers/BM photos).

Yes, which is not really standard with the other GRAVELAND covers.

My vote goes to "Carpathian Wolves". Those keys are just epic, Darken is a real master in creating massive synthetic soundscapes. Also the overall atmosphere and production of the album.

Thousand Swords and Carpathian Wolves

The drumming can be so messed up at times it becomes annoying, unfortunately keeping these albums out of the top tier pantheon in the long run

The sound/atmosphere on the original Carpathian Wolves (eternal devils) is amazing, the no colours version i just couldn't get into after being so use to the first version.
Carpathian Wolves, Celtic Winter & Following the Voice of Blood all come in a close second to Thousand Swords.
I think all the early Graveland stuff up to and including Immortal Pride had great cover art.

Honorable mentions to the noisy demo-era (Drunemeton/In the Glare of Burning Churches") and the monstrous Battle Metal of "Creed of Iron".

R.D. also deserves respect for having never wimped out. It's rare nowadays...

What specifically is the difference in sound between the two versions?


My vote is for Following the Voice of Blood, love how all the instruments sound on that album...all full lengths before it are equally good though, really.

Agree with pretty much everything said here. Thousand Swords would be my favorite, chronologically followed as stated above.

I listen to Celtic Winter more than anything else by far. Carpathian Wolves and Thousand Swords are good though. Despite listening time differences all 3 tie for first place with me. Just a magnificent trio of recordings.

Of the later era, Memory and Destiny is AMAZING. Such a different vibe than their other stuff. Fire Chariot gets a mention too.

How do the vinyl re-releases of Carpathian Wolves and Thousand Swords sound compared to the first press discs?

As stated, the Eternal Devils disc sounds different from the No Colours re-release disc.

i say Carpathian Wolves but I like all the stuff from the Darken, Capricornus and Karcharoth line up.

i wonder how many of you got turned on to Graveland from the Resistance Magazine article many years ago? does anyone remember this? i think it was when Thousand Swords was released and if i remember right they spoke of the Polish black metal scene and something about Thunderbolt going to prison? cant remember as it was so long ago and i lost my copy...definitely got my attention back then. Hail Rob Darken!
