This is a really fun album; every Entombed album has its own unique flavour and historically fan reaction to Entombed's back catalogue has ranged from `Genre Defining Classic,' to `Dreadful Sell Out.'

Inferno is a really fun album and a real grower, when it was first released I thought that it was good but not essential. Over the years however I always find myself coming back to the album and liking it more and more to the point where it has become one of my favourite Entombed records. While it was certainly not as fast as `Left Hand Path,' or as heavy as its predecessor `Morning Star,' it was brilliant and the songs speak for themselves.

Songs like the rumbling `The Fix Is In,' and the fantastic `That's When I Became A Satanist,' are oozing with macho muscle and adrenaline which is somewhat ironic considering the lyrical content of the amazing 'Flexing Muscles.'

The production isn't crystal clear because of Entombed's tonal choices and preference for the `Sweaty,' and `Grimy,' sounds, as they like to state in interviews and this is definitely one of their grimier records.

As an aside that may not affect everyone but exists on some printings of the album, a strange phenomenon exists where the album (which full of guitar solos) fails to play the solos on certain cd players. For example; on my home stereo this is full of solos, but on my walkman it has none at all. This problem is more or less solved now in the age of mp3s however and shouldn't put you off giving the album a fair try.

Overall; this is a brilliant album from Entmobed; don't expect a rehash of their first few albums, Inferno brings something a little different but equally interesting to the Entombed catalogue. If you are unsure about whether or not the album is for you, check out the groovy `NoboDaddy' as a rough gauge of the album's direction.

Entombed are now an established death n roll band, the days when they were a straight out death metal band are over , these days the band dont swerve off in any crazed direction and i guess it is all a familiar warmth that the band offer.
Inferno is far from their best though, it offers up some nice treats but nothing really tops the first few songs and thats a shame.
I wasnt blown away sadly.

Basically, I am fairly new to the extreme metal scene. I have been interested in nu-metal, punk and thrash metal for a while, but recently I have been trying to broaden my musical tastes. A couple of weeks ago I went on a 'shopping spree' for some rather obscure death/black metal gems. I found myself purchasing such classics as Darkthrone's 'Blaze in the Northern Sky' and At the Gates' 'The Red in the Sky is Ours'. I also found myself purchasing this album. It was a choice between this and 'Morning Star'. When I got home I slapped this CD in my stereo, turned up the volume and sat, awaiting the infamous death metal grunts and technical time changes. I was greeted by unaggressive vocals, simplistic power chord riffs, and basic drum beats which I have heard over and over again on Kerrang! To be fair trendies would probably enjoy this a lot, I don't mind the CD, but it is nothing special. Two days after purchasing 'Inferno', I heard 'Chief Rebel Angel' from 'Morning Star' and I couldn't believe how it was so much better than any of the songs on 'Inferno'. It was very thrashy and very good. So newcomers to extreme metal, this is just your average, plain, simplistic mix of punk, metal and classic rock (with no solos).

Okay, not great 8 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hmmm...are we still allowed to call it Death n' Roll? Entombed is great because they try to be a rocking metal band, mixing crushing guitars with actual rock rhythms. Wolverine Blues, To Ride..., and Uprising are all great examples of that - 3-4 minute songs, verse-chorus-verse structure, and a little rock n' roll hoochy-coo in the beats. On Morning Star, Entombed went for more straight-up Slayer-style metal, which was great in its own way. "Inferno" seems like a swing back to the Death n' Roll style, but I don't know, something's missing. It's mainly the songs. They aren't really that good - not many hooks and generally pretty unmemorable. The band seems a little off, too. You know those awesome moments when Entombed goes on a monstrous roll like a speeding train headed for a brick wall (think "Eye for an Eye," "Wreckage" and most of Uprising)? That doesn't happen much on this album. The band doesn't really click - it's like they weren't really listening to each other when they were playing or something. The production is pretty blah, too. It's no St. Anger-style disaster, but it's pretty uninspired. There are some nice moments ("That's When I Became A Satanist"), but a lot of the record seems like filler. I give Inferno three stars because I'm sentimental. And hey, it's Entombed, so it's still better than much of the [stuff] that gets passed off as heavy these days. But I'll put it this way: if I updated my "Best o' Entombed" mix today, it would only include one or two songs from Inferno. I'd look elsewhere for my Entombed fix.

Not a bad angle 10 April 2004
By Gluhman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very ironic album. Metallica tried to record Stoner metal, and failed, Entombed gives it a shot and well...Mission accomplished. Inferno is not the skullcrusher that Morning Star is but it is a great album. Inferno has the band slightly angling in the same direction as the last few C.O.C albums and the Black Label Society. "NoboDaddy" is a perfect example, followed up by a straight up thrasher "Young and Dead". The production is different but it works well, drums sounds great, vocals are strong as expected, the guitars are loose, but mixed together they have some great weight, nice bottom end to the whole album. This is a fun ride, it is not a Death metal standard like Morning Star but the core of the Entombed sound is still there. I still expect another Morning Star effort out of Entombed, but this is a good detour. It's got and good beat, I can dance to it... I give it 4 out of 5.

great songs, duff production 9 Aug 2003
By "zootiehead" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I listened to this in-store I thought, mmmm, waste of £13.However when I got it on my stereo and played for some time with the graphic equalisers I managed to get a decent sound. This is somewhere near to Rising on sound terms but with a few slower sections reminding me of Cathedral, definatley old school.
The songs are great, from the catchy Nobodaddy to the bruising Fix is in. Petrovs vocal talents excel, he's just got a great 60 cigs - a day drawl.
If you can be patient with the poor sound on some tracks they will grow on you. I can't see Entombed fans ranking this as highly as Morning Star, but they have the right to alter their style as have have done before. As long as they stay heavy and write good songs, I couldn't care less. So what if the guitars don't pound your face in quite the same way as Clandestine, they still pound you, one way or another!!

Great Songs surpass production value 28 Oct 2003
By T. Proud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is the somewhat dark sounding production. It's fine on it's own but if you have it in a multi disc changer on random play you'll notice it quite a lot. These new songs kick major a*s though and it's definitely a more "hairy" sound than Morning Star. It's like it was recorded when everybody had a serious hangover :). There is as always with Entombed great variety on the CD of tempos and feel which is always welcome. I tweaked the EQ using my PC and now have a 5 star CD to listen to. I really think even if you don't have the ability to EQ it you'll still like it. I would definitely still be OK with the original sound if I didn't have the ability to adjust it. The Fix is In is my new favorite song from any artist and is just an amazing example of to the point arranging and crafting of powerful yet catchy ideas. I dare you to try not to do your best L-G impersonation when they sing "Heretic at the stake, let the motherf*ck*r bake"....Just Brilliant.

TOP NOTCH AS ALWAYS 8 July 2003
By Muxz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is an example of fine heavy metal. As usual Entombed switch gears and create something that is different than their previous album. Most people like metal bands to reproduce the sound album over and over again but Entombed always comes out fresh which is the main reason I love this band to begin with. If you liked "Uprising" then you'll love this album but if you're looking for "Clandestine" part2 then you may wanna check the new band from Finland "ChaosBreed" because Entombed are done with that sound. "Retaliation" and "That's when I became a satanist" are the two best.
ENTOMBED RULES ALL!!!!!
