Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (1987 – present)

Entombed is a 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 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 “chain saw” guitar sound. It was created using the Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal and a Peavey amplifier.

After the Gods of Grind tour, Entombed began changing their sound into a mix of hard rock and death metal frequently called Death and Roll. Although this may have turned off many fans, it established their mainstream and critical reputation. Wolverine Blues and Hollowman are widely considered classics of early 1990s death metal, but were followed by problems with various record companies.

In 1999, Entombed released Uprising, which was an anti-commercial return to the band’s roots. The follow-up, Morning Star returned to Hollowman and Wolverine Blues style metal. They have since released 2003’s album Inferno, a continuation of the ‘death n roll’ style that has become their trademark sound.

    @Maquina_Muerte: I am just going to tag it as Entombed. Like you said it would be weird to have two versions of Entombed.

    the big question i ask myself is: should I tag the upcoming album as Entombed or Entombed A.D. ???? I will feel very stupid when i have two versions of Entombed in my library :/ Not many people seem to tag Ghost as Ghost B.C., so maybe we can do the same with Entombed ????? After all, the artwork with Entombed in the old logo is available everywhere, so we as fans of Entombed have the option to say; 'fuck all these legal bullcrap, Entombed = Entombed' What do you guys think and what will you do when the album is 'out' ?

    I also heard this live bootleg called The Truth Beyond, with Petrov doing Clandestine tracks, the quality is horrible. if you see that one, pass it up.

    ah yes, sorry i mean, why they skipped over on reissuing it as part of the FDR series - the remasters sound VERY good. i emailed them about it suggesting they might try to crowdfund it like they did for nocturnus, and thanking them for Hollowman. the guy who replied said they would not re-release crawl but would pass on the message to the manufacturing guys anyway. crossing my fingers, but i know it's hopeless.

    @ versionfiv yes, he sang half the Clandestine album on their "Monkey Puss"-live album, which was recorded in 1992 before they changed their sound. I also read/saw an interview with L-G not too long ago where he said that Clandestine also was his personal fave album by Entombed.

    yup, when i saw Entombed in summer 2013 Petrov did sang to two tracks off Clandestine (Stranger Aeons and Living Dead). He did well, ofcourse he doesn't sound like on Left Hand Path anymore, but I must say he did some pretty decent and extreme growling live, the gig itself was better than expected, sadly enough couple of months later it appeared Petrov went to record an Entombed album without Hellid... strange decision, they all seemed to have a good chemistry on stage, what would have made them split ways ???
