Year:  1991
Country:  Sweden
Label:  Earache
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  9
Time:  43 min.

Clandestine is the second studio album by Swedish death metal band Entombed. It was released on November 12, 1991, in Europe, and on February 11, 1992, in North America. It helped establish a distinctively Swedish sound in the death metal genre. This is the only Entombed album on which original vocalist L.G. Petrov does not appear and despite the whole is quite death metal, all songs here are full of rhythms, structures and speed closer to punk rock, hardcore and besides british band Discharge (with their typical D-Beat style).

"wolverine blues"
Year:  1993
Country:  Sweden
City:   Stockholm
Label:  Earache
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  9
Time:  35 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Metal

















swedish band started in 1987 under the name "Nihilist", which changed to Entombed in 1989. They started as death metal band, but they evoluted mixing all sort of music styles such as: garage rock, punk rock, hardcore, thrash metal, heavy metal and rock'n'roll. Sometimes they have not well accepted by the ortodox metal-heads but just the opposite for those who are not Metal followers. This "wolverine blues" could be their best example to show their attraction to bristish legend band Discharge, and in general all scandinavian punk hardcore bands as: Anti-Cimex, Driller Killer, Disfear, Mob 47, Totalitär, etc. If you like Discharge ‎"hear nothing see nothing say nothing" or "never again", it's your are going to love this album.

"wreckage"
Year:  1997
Country:  Sweden
City:  Stockholm
Label:  Music for Nations
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  14
Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Heavy Metal

















This is the fourth album by the band Entombed, released in 1997. DCLXVI is 666 in Roman numerals. The cover art features a statuette of the Aztec god Mictlantecuhtli. This album shows a continuation of the metal punk sound previously established on 1993's "Wolverine Blues", but eschews most traces of hardcore and death metal in favor of a punk rock, garage rock and heavy metal influenced sound. Entombed are the originators of that extremely low, evil guitar sound, that became a trademark for Swedish death metal and many bands who also wanted that sound. It was year 1990 when the band's debut album 'Left Hand Path' came out, sending waves for years to come. But Entombed themselves began to include more rock'n'roll and punk music influences on their third album already, the legendary platter 'Wolverine Blues'. Brilliant album.

"same difference"
Year:  1998
Country:  Sweden
Label:  Music for Nations
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  44 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Alternative Rock




















"same difference" is the fifth full-length album by swedish band Entombed. It was released in 1998. This album shows the band moving into a commercial alternative rock sound, and is generally considered the band's weakest moment both by fans, and by the band's former vocalist, LG Petrov. Why is it alternative rock? Well, because there is that rock and roll feel throughout the entire album, provided by the paced drums, the pummeling repetitive guitars and the swingy mood they convey. Apart from that, there is that heavy down-tuned feel portrayed by the atmosphere created around every single track, one that will resemble something in the vein of a slowed down Nirvana, Pearl Jam or Soundgarden, 90's era (the songs “Clauses” and “Kick in the Head” being fit examples), or even a spaced out Stone Temple Pilots from their early 90’s works (in songs like “Same Difference” or “High Waters”). You will eventually find yourself nodding confidently to these tunes, because they invade your brain and linger inside addictively. Despite all, I definitively like this album.

"uprising"
Year:  2000
Label:  Threeman
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  40 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Heavy Metal





















I picked up Entombed's "uprising" at a used record store on a whim fairly early in my metal-listening career, recognizing the name as a heavy metal band. Upon playing it at home, I was deeply surprised to, instead of metal, hear a particularly abrasive, raw, and heavy form of rock music instead. I definitely liked it, that much was sure: there seemed to be something more 'real' about this rock music than what was heard on the radio, something more emotionally resonant and, in some way, more metallic than what one would hear ordinarily. But really, my appreciation for it never quite moved beyond an aesthetic level: it was a pleasing listen, but I'd moved on to bigger, better, and more complex things in the meantime. It's only in recent time, after numerous plays, have I begun to really grasp what separates Entombed from most rock music, what unifies it with heavy metal, and what makes it a truly great album in the field of both genres. In short, "uprising" is the combination of metal's ideology and passion with rock music's rawness of emotion and basic musical template. What we have is quite possibly the perfect bridge between the two genres, taking parts of each but existing comfortably in neither. "Uprising" is too heavy, brutal, and non commercial for rock music; "uprising" is too emotionally naked, musically humble, and earnestly blue-collar for heavy metal. It's a record of massive alienation and discontent, thus representing both genres, and one of the attempt to reconcile ones' neuroses and ambitions with reality, representing neither. Frustrating? Yes. It's an album that's ABOUT frustration, and insanity, and depression, an and a level of hopeless loss and confusion that any grunge or noise-rock band could hope to emulate in absolute honesty and purity of delivery. heavy metal, rock'n'roll and punk as fuck.  (*review by Noktorn ).
