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.
