GRAVELAND IS NOT NSBM!
When Graveland started playing live some photos of me and Honor members has emerged. They were taken in 2001 and supposed to be some sort of memorabilia only. They have nothing to do with politics and they are not reflecting my political views either! They are random, accidental photos taken during a photo session I once had at the castle in Gliwice. Haters often misinterpret those photos describing them as the ones of Graveland. Graveland has nothing in common with the political views presented by Honor. Personally, I have never made any gestures that might have been treated as political. They only represnt the views of Honor members. Graveland was never a part of any political movement! From the very beginning of the band I was inspired by paganism and old, dark cults that have their roots in it. Those inspirations are the main motive in Graveland's music. Current line-up consists of musicians that are part of the metal scene only! Graveland is not an NSBM band and never was! During those 20 years the band followed the path from Black Metal to Pagan Metal! I quite often spoke about it during interviews for music magazines. Overinterpretation of the mentioned photos is only an effect of a common hate that spreads thorughout the internet on a daily basis. Those several gigs that Graveland played in 2016 on some big metal festivals like Steelfest (Finland), Ragnard Rock Fest (France), Pomerania Fest (Poland) proves that the band plays only, and nothing more than metal music that is bound to the Pagan Black Metal genre.
