L-G Petrov (vocals) comments: “After almost 7 years of studio absence we are back with a new album called Back To The Front ready to blow metalheads away around this world! Feels great to announce this deal with Century Media ! Can’t wait to let u all be a part of it!”
Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R Century Media Records Europe: “I first saw ENTOMBED in 1992 on the Gods Of Grind tour and was blown away by their merciless sound that was even back then more than just death metal. Over 20 years later they still kick ass and we are more than proud to finally welcome them to the CM family. Cheers!”
The band formed under the name NIHILIST in 1987 and changed its name to ENTOMBED in 1989. Together with Morbid (for whom singer L-G played drums), Treblinka/Tiamat, Grave and Dismember, ENTOMBED/NIHILIST belong to the earliest bands to forge the immortal Swedish death metal sound that became as popular and unique as the more technical, less punkish Florida-trademark style emerging around the same time. Inspired by such diverse acts as Autopsy, Mot??ad, Discharge or Kiss, over the years ENTOMBED did not shy away from thinking outside of the coffin resulting in an unique style some fans called Death’n’Roll but in the end it’s just a band with a style and impact entirely their own. A sound that has influenced thousands of bands from metal to hardcore to rock and now the legend returns to show you all that they still master it like no one else.
