Entombed  


Entombed was at the forefront of the first wave of Swedish death metal in the early nineties, with their first two releases (Left Hand Path and Clandestine) widely regarded as landmarks in the field. By 1994, they shifted direction somewhat, starting with Wolverine Blues, towards a more punk-oriented, stripped-down yet still quite heavy style, prompting the coining of phrases such as "death 'n roll" and "death rock" by fans and critics. Predictably, the change in style split existing fans, some of which wanted more traditional death metal and others welcoming the new sound. The past several years has seen Entombed tinkering with their style, offering slight deviations here and there but basically sticking to a now-reliable formula that continues to serve them well. The general consensus is that Same Difference is the lone substandard release in their back catalog, with newer albums such as Morning Star and Uprising receiving the most accolades.

The band fractured in 2013, when guitarist Alex Hellid sat out a tour and then commenced to work with older former members. The rest of the band pressed on, recording an album that ended up being released under the name Entombed A.D.. That band is now the logical successor to Entombed, while the actual band name Entombed, co-owned by the original four members, cannot be used.
