Published Nov 19, 2015Last year, Swedish crossover death metal vets Entombed were reincarnated as Entombed A.D. on the new album Back to the Front. Now, the rebranded band are back with the follow-up, Dead Dawn, which will be out on February 26 through Century Media Records.
Dead Dawn was co-produced by guitarist Nico Elgstrand. He offered the following description of the album's creation:
After festering an eon inside the belly of the beast, it finally disposed of us. I'm not gonna tell you out of which orifice we were spawned, but I will tell you it was demeaning in the true sense of the word. From this horrible experience came the urge to express ourselves through sound and so we did. Now, it's done and we can only look proudly back on what we have created: a damn sinister sounding record. You might not be able to comprehend it, but you won't be able to deny it either!
The band will unveil the first single in mid-December. For the time being, they have booked a run of European shows for 2016. See the schedule below.
Entombed A.D. features frontman Lars-Göran Petrov, drummer Olle Dahlstedt, guitarist Nico Elgstrand and bassist Victor Brandt. All of those members previously played in Entombed, but they changed their name shortly after the departure of longtime guitarist Alex Hellid.
