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. This is certainly a great album and the deluxe edition contains a bonus song:- "Gospel of the horns" & is worth you're time, money and effort to buy the version with it included. The packaging on the deluxe is a hardback digi but with a cardboard cut out sleeve holding the disc as opposed to the tray in the standard jewel case CD.

If this is the intended carnation of the Entombed brand going forward, then I'm with it & support it all the way!. Superb CD!..,
4.25/5

Great to see Entombed back, there are some great songs on here including kill to live, pandemic rage, second to none and waiting for death. Not quite the wanted return to clandestine but a good heavy and catchy album...recommended!
