ENTOMBED A.D. Pushes “Back To The Front” Back To AugustWednesday, 14th May 2014
Rebranded Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED A.D. have pushed the release of Back To The Front, the album that was recorded last year by four members of the most recent lineup of the legendary Swedish metal act ENTOMBED — Lars Göran Petrov (vocals), Olle Dahlstedt (drums), Nico Elgstrand (guitar) and Victor Brandt (bass) — to August 5 via Century Media Records.
Petrov will only perform with ENTOMBED A.D. and will not take part in any upcoming shows announced under the name ENTOMBED.
Says Petrov: “After a year of struggles, we are happy to finally get Back To The Front out! There is no one stopping us this time from playing music, being on the road and headbang as metalheads do!”
Back To The Front was recorded at Studio Bohus (ABBA, EUROPE) in Kungälv, Sweden with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR). The CD’s original cover artwork was painted by Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, VADER) and can be seen below.
A press release states: “Don’t be afraid that it will sound like ABBA — it’s 666% true to the ENTOMBED everybody loves. While not falling for total regression back to the early classics Left Hand Path or Clandestine, expect a total bone-crushing opus that will have fans of Wolverine Blues, To Ride… or Morning Star cry tears of joy. From the morbid, pissed-off lyrics over detuned, massive riffs to the inimitable brick-heavy groove and L.G. Petrov’s titanic roar, Back To The Front has it all, so get ready for a stone-cold stunner!”
