Entombed AD

May 10, 2017

One would need more than one flipchart to scratch the surface of how influential Entombed have been throughout the nearly three decades of their existence.

 

Emerged under the moniker Nihilist in the mid-80ies and coining what eventually  became trademark Scandinavian death metal,  their unique Clandestine album became  an instant and timeless classic that has never lost an iota of relevance.

However, by the early 1990s their sound branched out and opened up to included garage rock and other influences.

This new mélange of hard rock, heavy metal and death metal would eventually be described as “death’n’roll”.

What followed were the kingpins of heavy music taking pages out of Entombed’s book and sourcing more than mere subtle influences to enrich their musical emissions.

2014 saw a name change and a continuation of their path with the adage “AD”.

In a live environment, Entombed AD is everything you would hope for and more: Charismatic, engaging Swedes unleashing the fury like the well-oiled machine they are, delivering a variety of old, tested and tried classics along with new emissions of their varied discography and artfully switching between bludgeoning and brutal yet groovy onslaughts, blast beats and virtuoso, thrashing riffing, effortlessly walking the chasm between death metal, punkish and rocking elements and pretty much all of the other ingredients that make heavy music worthwhile.

The legacy of Entombed looms large despite internal strife, yet the 2017 Entombed AD incarnation sounds as ferocious and savage as you would hope them to be

It was good to see them in the third dimension proving that they have lost none of their relevance.
