If you don’t know ENTOMBED A.D., the deadly sonic force fronted by former Nihilist/Entombed vocalist L-G Petrov, well, then you’re either no metalhead, slept under a rock since the late 80’s or have already gone the way of all flesh with crawling swarms of maggots deliciously peeling every single bit of meat from your sorry bones.
ENTOMBED A.D.’s legacy goes way back into the year 1987 when the band originally formed under the name Nihilist. In 1989, the group changed its name to Entombed and together with Morbid (for whom singer L-G played drums), Treblinka/Tiamat, Grave, Unleashed, Dismember, they established themselves as masters of Swedish death metal before flavoring the trademark “Stockholm sound” with a more punkish, rocking edge that culminated in the ultimate death ‘n’ roll classic “Wolverine Blues” in 1993, an album still very much present in the band’s current sound.
Inspired by such diverse acts as Autopsy, Motörhead, Discharge or Kiss, over the years Entombed did not shy away from thinking outside of the coffin resulting in a style some fans called death’n’roll but in the end it was, is and will just be a band with a style and impact entirely their own.
With two full-length album under the new persona, Back to the Front (2014) and Dead Dawn (2016), ENTOMBED A.D are poised to return with one of 2019’s most devastating, deathly statements. Their new album “Bowels Of Earth” represents a huge leap forward for these gnarly veterans. Faster, tighter and more viscerally crushing than anything they have produced before.
