If you don’t know Entombed A.D., the deadly sonic force fronted by former Nihilist/Entombed vocalist L-G Petrov, well, then you’re either no metalhead, slept under a rock since the late-80’s or have already gone the way of all flesh with crawling swarms of maggots deliciously peeling every single bit of meat from your sorry bones. Entombed A.D.’s legacy goes way back into the year 1987 when the band originally formed under the name Nihilist. In 1989, the group changed it’s name to Entombed and together with Morbid, Treblinka/Tiamat, Grave, Unleashed, Dismember, they established themselves as masters of Swedish death metal before flavoring the trademark ‘Stockholm Sound’ with a more punkish, rocking edge that culminated in the ultimate death ‘n’ roll classic Wolverine Blues in 1993, an album still very much present in the band’s current sound. Just like it’s 2014 predecessor Back to the Front, the commando’s newest strike, Dead Dawn, does not rehash the early, pure death metal nor the softer leanings of Entombed in the late 90’s, it proudly sports the filth, the roll, the death, the goddamn dose of heaviness you need, expect, and wish to hear from this pack. And, it has L-G Petrov, whose glorious, whiskey-drenched roar thrones above the musical fundament like a mad, deranged king bellowing his lunatic commands!
