So it's finally out!... As many may know, 'Back to the front' was delayed by almost a year due to a band name lawsuit-of-prevention, initiated via Alex Hellid, who departed the band just before the intended release date. Hellid' then joined forces with some former band members of Entombed to perform a complete orchestrated version of Clandestine. Wether or not they intend to release any new material ahead of that or to take up the endeavour full-time, remains to be seen; but Petrov and co:- seem determined to push on with their progressive death and roll brand, despite a minute adjustment with regard to the A.D suffix in front of the name.

This new album is not a ' U- turn' to death metal as some might lead you to believe. Sure, there is an abundance of the brutal buzz' metallic undercurrents running through these compliments, but to these ears it remains closer to they're newer material like "Serpent Saints or Morning Star", to which there is plenty of epic similarities to. The buzzsaw sound is also abit more raised/clear in the mix, which I'm sure will no doubt be very welcomed by most of the fans. Overall, this is a large improvement over the Serpent Saints album and is the perfect natural successor to Morning Star. One album:- in particular of theirs, that I regard as a total masterpiece, by-the-way.

I enjoy the metallic buzz and riff of "Vulture and the traitor" and the onslaught of "Bedlam Attack" the most; but the death and roll kicking of "Second to none" is a pleasant listen too, as is the creepy intro and starter:- "Kill to live". I am certainly glad that the band have decided to progress with they're trademark sound whilst keeping the fundamental elements of the Entombed sound in tact.

Entombed Reborn 18 July 2014
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those unaware of what's happening with Entombed, here's a fairly short version. Last summer, word began to spread about a new Entombed album to be released around early fall. As the release date neared, rumors emerged that guitarist Alex Hellid was no longer in the band and had nothing to do with the new album. Soon, the rumor was confirmed, making vocalist L.G. Petrov the only original member left in Entombed. Then, before the album dropped, Hellid and other original Entombed members took action to prevent Petrov from releasing an Entombed album. Hellid, guitarist Uffe Cederlund, and drummer Nicke Andersson announced that they were reforming and playing the entire "Clandestine" album live with an orchestra under the name Entombed. When the time came, Andersson didn't participate, so Hellid and Cederlund performed as Entombed. Now, Petrov has decided to name his band, which was the last line-up of Entombed minus Hellid, Entombed A.D. (maybe a play on how fellow Swedes Ghost had to change their name in the U.S. to Ghost B.C. over copyright issues). With the official Entombed silent, Petrov's group is moving forward with the album they recorded nearly a year ago when they were the official Entombed.

Personally, I consider this the follow-up to the last Entombed full-length, 2007's "Serpent Saints." Three members of that band remain, so besides L.G., you have Nico (guitar) and Olle (drums), who've been in Entombed for almost ten years. The other original members are probably never to going to do anything with the name, as they are death metal's answer to Metallica when it comes to putting out new music. I never saw anything about why Alex left, but this album completely does the Entombed name justice. In fact, it sounds more like Entombed than just about anything they've done post-"Same Difference." It has a healthy dose of the melodic elements found on "Left Hand Path" and "Clandestine," which they began re-incorporating on "Serpent Saints." You'll also hear some of the galloping rhythms and buzzsaw guitar sound from the early days, along with the occasional deep growl or high-pitched screech from L.G. For the most part, the songs have heavy power riffs similar to "Wolverine Blues"/"To Ride..." or "Morning Star," but with a darker edge. That said, it still gets fast and old-school throughout. The more I listen to it, the more it seems like a combination of styles from the best Entombed albums.

I'm not taking sides on the Entombed split, and I actually would love to see the other three original members do something, but for now, if this is the only Entombed there is, I'm behind it. L.G. sounds really good, giving what I think is his best vocal performance since "To Ride...", and the band seems more energized than on "Serpent Saints." It's a real shame that Alex is gone and L.G. has to use the "A.D." suffix, as this stands up to anything in the Entombed discography and should be their official tenth album. Bursting with all the dynamic elements that made Entombed one of the most intriguing bands in death metal in their heyday, "Back to the Front" is a highly satisfying listen after a long seven-year wait. Here's a track list with some notes on each song.

1. Kill to Live- Creepy stalker-movie sound effects like Left Hand Path; great old-school melodic riffs
2. Bedlam Attack- Stomping death metal, classic buzzsaw guitar sound; cross between Clandestine and Hollowman EP
3. Pandemic Rage- Mix of Left Hand Path death metal and Morning Star powerhouse death 'n' roll
4. Second to None- Wolverine Blues swing crossed with Clandestine gallop
5. Bait and Bleed- Crunch of To Ride/Inferno/Morning Star/Serpent Saints, plus fast, punkish thrash
6. Waiting for Death- Fast thrash/death with more buzzsaw guitar in the chorus and raw, demonic vocals
7. Eternal Woe- Badass swagger of Uprising injected with some melody
8. Digitus Medius- More Morning Star power with hints of Left Hand Path/Clandestine atmosphere
9. Vulture and the Traitor- Left Hand Path style updated and grooved-out (*favorite song!*)
10. The Underminer- Death grind/thrash in obvious Left Hand Path tradition
11. Soldier of No Fortune- Clandestine feel mixed with Serpent Saints, riff like "Crawl"
*12. Gospel of the Horns- CD Bonus track; strange, dark, brooding song with clean guitars mixed in

Entombed after death .... 4 Oct. 2014
By Donald Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this sounds exactly how you would expect the follow-up to Serpent Saints to be .unfortunately , it sounds a bit dated and makes you question what took Entombed 7 years to release this follow up . surprisingly , the absence of Alexis Hellid made no remarkable difference to the band's output here . LG still has the same commanding bark and the band retains their groovy , dirty rhythm section . it sounds like Entombed with a few , modern progressive twists . most of the songs just hammer away and are interlaced with wolverine-bluesy solos and melodic riffs . it's a competent affair but not even as good as the When In Sodom ep and nowhere near as memorable as their first 4 albums . overall , an enjoyable metal album but not one that will have a lot of replay value or be considered a classic in Entombed's ...I mean ..uh ...Entombed AD's discography .

... who still insist that Left Hand Path is the best Entombed record 5 Sept. 2014
By Erik Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For all of you who still insist that Left Hand Path is the best Entombed record, stop reading now. You probably never heard anything past To Ride Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth and have not followed the band through the years. Having said that, I am a uber fan of Entombed. I've stood by them through all the records and been mostly happy with all the band has done as well as offshoot projects (looking at you Murder Squad!). So needless to say I highly anticipated this release. All I can say is the record is Truly inspired. All the riffs are well thought out and flow incredibly well without some of the juxtopositoin we heard on previous efforts like Serpent saints and Inferno. All the playing-Drums,Guitars,Bass and yes the vocals are top notch. I think this may be MY favorite Entombed record now, even beating out Morningstar.

Great record ! Sad about the legal issues that slowed this release.

I have one issue...some of the solos are a little dated for me.
