Entombed is a death metal band from Stockholm, Sweden which formed in 1987 under the name of Nihilist. In 1989 they changed their name to Entombed. Though Entombed began their career as an early pioneer of Scandinavian death metal, by the early 1990s their sound had broadened to include hardcore punk and other influences. This new style would eventually be described as Death 'n' Roll, of which Entombed remains arguably the best-known example.

Entombed's debut album was Left Hand Path, a cult favorite that established the band as a popular death metal band. The follow-up, Clandestine, was just as popular. These first two albums were unique in that they featured what was sometimes referred to as an "electric saw" guitar sound. It was created using the Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal and a Peavey amplifier. It appeared on their debut, Left Hand Path. but was improved and refined on the

voila_la_scorie
Entombed: one of the Big Four in Swedish death metal and the first of the four that I was to encounter on CD. Fairly recently. Like, a few months ago and nearly three decades after the band's career commenced. As with many old school death metal bands I have gotten acquainted with, I found out about Entombed by watching old school death metal playlists on YouTube. Of course, the album usually mentioned is "Left Hand Path" with some attention also going to "Clandestine". It was either of these two that I had to choose for my first purchase. Then I saw "Wolverine Blues".

Blues?! A death metal band is using the word "blues" in an album title? And Wolverine? Even at the time this album was released, the X-Men character was well known. What on earth were these Swedes up to?

So, I checked out some songs on YouTube and, well, wow! Consider this: I had been checking out a couple of dozen bands or more in a subgenre I was not too familiar with and had previously avoided. At first, everybody sounded awesome. But after a while, everybody sounded similar. I wanted to find that band or album that did something different to make it stand apart from the usual death metal environment. This album certainly did stand out.

After two death metal albums in Swedish style, Entombed decided to get into some other stuff and came up with an album that sounds like a conconction of mid-seventies Black Sabbath and Motorhead with some hardcore peppered in. In-your-face, angry biker style vocals, really growly, dirty, massive-rusty-industrial-chain guitar sound, and a rhythm section that almost swaggers, this album took a death metal band in such a new direction that they called this music "death n' roll". While the title probably was supposed to sound cool, I can't help but think of crocodiles when I hear this. Death roll!

There's little point in picking apart each song. It's just ultra-gritty guitar riffs, groove, and guts throughout with some songs capturing my attention more than others for one reason or another. I'd say the first three or four tracks and the last two are my preferred songs, but the whole album is consistent, though "Hollowman" brings in a bit of melody.

After several listens, some of the excitement of hearing the entire album has worn off, but I am still very curious about the next album, "DCLXVI: To Ride Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth". For now, "Clandestine" is on its way to my place, so I'll get to see the earlier side of the band.

Death n' roll or whatever, it was really good to hear an album that combined components of the death metal sound with more familiar, traditional stuff like Black Sabbath and Motorhead.

In their day, Entombed were untouchable. While many consider their debut "Left Hand Path" to be their best, I prefer "Clandestine" as it is heavier and more polished, while retaining the crunch and aggression of its predecessor.

The track "Living Dead" has to be one of the most face–ripping openings to an album of all time. No messing around with samples, feedback, or acoustic introductions, just straight into the full–on death metal maelstrom.

Listening to this album is best done in one sitting, as an entirety, rather than dissected track by track. Each song seems to feed off that before it. There are more subtle moments throughout the album, including a few choice samples. These further amplify the brutality of the headlong charge through one of death metal's Finest Hours.

Even though vocalist LG Petrov was temporarily absent from the band during the recording, the vocals of Nicke Anderson (not Johnny Dordevic, as the liner notes say) are the most brutal the band produced in their recording career. The guitar sound is actually crisper and punchier than on "Left Hand Path", and the bass and drums are also more clearly defined than on the debut.

After "Clandestine" Entombed's career took a downward slide into the murky world of "Death n' Roll", almost completely deserting their death metal roots. Entombed have since rediscovered the Left Hand Path, but everything else pales in comparison to 'Clandestine'.

The story of Entombed is an oft–told one in death metal circles. From the leading band of the genre, bar none, the band changed directions so radically as to alienate a majority of their original fans. Not that Entombed seemed to give a rodent's rectum, merrily playing what they liked.

But if disgruntled deathsters had looked deeper into Entombed's influences, they may not have been so surprised by the change of direction. Alongside Slayer, Venom, MC5 and Repulsion, Entombed never made a secret of their love of old school glam rock, particularly Kiss. This EP provides a mere glimpse at the Entombed psyche.

Believe it or not, Entombed cover Twisted Sister, The Dwarves, Jerry's Kids, and perhaps most unusual, Bob Dylan. Backing the best song off 'To Ride, Shoot Straight And Speak The Truth' in "Wreckage" is a nothing remix of the same song, adding little to the original. Then it's time for a blast through Twisted Sister's "Tear It Loose". Glam rock never sounded so brutal! The soloing is excellent, far surpassing the original, and surprisingly Dee Snider's lyrics are the perfect match for LG Petrov's hardcore shout. "Lost" from Jerry's Kids is fairly straightforward, while "Satan", originally by The Dwarves, is a micro–blast of hardcore fury.

Entombed's rendition of Bob Dylan's "The Ballad Of Hollis Brown" is the most distinctive and memorable track on this EP. Dylan gained fame for his lyrical genius, and infamy for electrifying folk music. While his nasal voice can be irritating to many (like me!), this track shows a good song is a good song, no matter what style you play it in. It is distinctly Dylan and unmistakably Entombed. A strange mix, but it works.

ENTOMBED Hollowman

This little release generated a lot of interest in 1993. Entombed had set the pace for the Swedish death metal scene with the one-two combination of `Left Hand Path' and `Clandestine'. The band promised something a little different for their third album, and the `Hollowman' EP was released to test the waters.

The differences were apparent immediately on the title track. The blast laden death metal percussion had been slowed to a more sedate rock style, albeit a very heavy one which still featured double kick breakdowns. The vocals were more enunciated, and there was almost a hardcore feel to them in places. The chainsaw guitar sound had been retained, but like the percussion, the riffing had a large rock element added.

"Wolverine Blues" is heavier and less refined than the album version. The lyrics still hadn't been written, so LG Petrov read an encyclopaedia entry on wolverines, which was very effective in itself. The bass on the song reaches right into your boots and rattles the bottom end of your speakers.

"Bonehouse" Sounds like a leftover from the `Clandestine' sessions. Not as fully developed as songs from that album, it is still a full on death metal track other bands would have traded body parts for. It also bears some resemblance to Entombed's later single "Out Of Hand".

While "Hollowman" was undoubtedly the supposed focus of the EP, the best track was "Hellraiser", a metal reworking of the theme music from the movie of the same name. It translates to metal very well, as a dark, foreboding song with an intricate central riff. Samples from the movie added in the background make it a full on creepfest, and it is a little disconcerting to listen to the song in the dark.

Change is often not a good thing in a musical genre as restrictive as death metal, yet the change in style wasn't greeted with the expected cries of derision. After all, it was still heavy, dark, and uniquely Entombed. Instead, it seemed death metal fans wanted to see where Entombed were going to take this embryonic death ‘n’ roll sound. Rather than spoil the surprise awaiting on `Wolverine Blues', `Hollowman' helped build anticipation for the album.

"When in Sodom" is an EP release by Swedish death metal act Entombed. The EP was released through Threeman Recordings in June 2006. It´s the last release by the band to feature drummer Peter Stjärnvind. Bassist Nico Elgstrand handles the production duties.

The 23:47 minutes long EP features 5 tracks. The title track would later be included on "Serpent Saints: The Ten Amendments (2007)", but the rest of the material is exclusive to this release. The music style is the usual death metal style with death´n´roll leanings. This time around the band have put more emphasis on brutality and less on the rock part of their sound though. The tracks are generally both catchy and memorable. The title track is great and so are "Heresy", "Carnage" and "Thou Shalt Kill". The atmospheric closer "Amen" isn´t that interesting, but all is forgiven since the rest of the material is as strong as it is. Not surprisingly the musicianship reeks class. L-G Petrov is also still one of the best extreme metal vocalists in the business. Distinct sounding, completely intelligible, and passionate.

"When in Sodom" features a nice and raw sound production that suits the music well and besides "Amen", which I see as an odd EP type track, that would never have made it unto a full-length studio album, "When in Sodom" is a strong release by Entombed. They might not possess the incredible strength of their early years, but they still deliver their music with more conviction than most and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
