Entombed is a Swedishmarker death metal band which formed in 1987 under the name of Nihilist. Though Entombed began their career as an early pioneer of Scandinavian death metal, by the early 1990s their sound had broadened to include hardcore punk and other influences. This new style would eventually be described as death 'n' roll. Entombed have been influenced by bands such as Autopsy, Slayer, Kiss, The Misfits, Motörhead and Discharge.

Band history

Entombed's debut album was Left Hand Path, a cult favorite that established the band as a popular swedish 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 "electric saw" guitar sound. On their debut, Left Hand Path, it was created using an Ibanez X-series with EMG pickups detuned five half notes, the Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal cranked to 10 on al dials and a Peavey Studio Pro 40 amplifier. For the follow up, Clandestine similar equipment was used but with a Peavey Bandit instead.

After the Gods of Grind tour, Entombed began changing their sound into a mix of hard rock and death metal often referred to as death 'n' 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.

1998's Same Difference was the band's first album without drummer and founding member Nicke Andersson, who left the band to concentrate on The Hellacopters. He was replaced by Peter Stjärnvind. In 1999, Entombed released Uprising, which was very much a continuation of the death 'n' roll sound. The follow-up, Morning Star returned to the style of Hollowman and Wolverine Blues.

In 2001, the band worked with performance artists Carina Reich and Bogdan Szyberb, and the Royal Swedish Ballet. The production was entitled Unreal Estate.

They have since released 2003's album Inferno, a continuation of the death 'n' roll style that has become their trademark sound. 2006 saw the release of the When in Sodom EP on June 6 (or 06/06/06). The full-length Serpent Saints - The Ten Amendments followed on July 9th, 2007. This album is the group's first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt (of Alpha Safari and ex-Misery Loves Co.), who replaced Stjärnvind in 2006, and also the first without Uffe Cederlund who is now part of Disfear.
