(This is Andy Synn‘s review of the new album by Sweden’s Entombed A.D., which will be released on August 30 by Century Media.)
There are a LOT of albums being released this week, from underground underdogs like Witch Vomit to mainstream monsters like Tool.
But, what with time being both limited and linear, we’re unlikely to be able to cover everything in the next few days, which means some difficult choices need to be made.
If there’s one album I wasn’t going to let pass by without comment though, it’s the new Entombed.
You’ll note that I said “Entombed” and not “Entombed A.D.” there because, despite all the ongoing legal shenanigans, I still consider this version of the band to be the legitimate one.
Put it like this, you don’t get to leave a band and then decide to reclaim the name later on (in some cases decades later) just because someone offered you some of that sweet, sweet reunion money.
Of course, you may not agree with me on that, which is your prerogative. But, after listening to Bowels of Earth you might just change your tune…
