Metal Review – Entrails – The Tomb Awaits (2011)

Entrails - The Tomb AwaitsOld school death metal fans rejoice once again. Entrails is just bringing it with their latest release, The Tomb Awaits. Think back to some classic death metal bands and you will get the sound that Entrails captures on this one. I am highly sold on The Tomb Awaits. The riffs are crushing and the vocals are no slouch either.

There must be something in the water over there in Sweden because it seems like all they produce is solid metal. Check out End of all Existence and you will see what I mean.

You’ve been waiting for this one! If you thought Entrails’ Tales from the Morgue was one of the best old school Swedish death metal releases of 2010 (and many of you did), then be prepared to crown The Tomb Awaits king for 2011. The album is set for a September 9th release on Dark Descent Records in North America and on FDA Rekotz in Europe. Once again mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swano, The Tomb Awaits also features guest vocals by Swano and cover art by Daniel Devilish. Expect nothing less than festering, rotten death metal. Remember, The Tomb Awaits…

Formed in 1991, Entrails was largely inactive until 2008 when it released a couple of demo tapes worth of material that was originally written in the early 90s. In 2010, Entrails hit the studio and recorded what was their first full-length titled Tales from the Morgue. Honest, true, HM-2 Swedish death metal, Tales from the Morgue was highly acclaimed and exposed Entrails to a large audience. Additionally, Tales from the Morgue also proved that Entrails was not just some retro-Swedish death metal band, but the real deal.
