4.0 out of 5 stars Double release of covers by the only Death 'n' Roll band, 24 April 2003
By 
Mr. D. G. Hazeldine "Dr. Sticks" (Kidderminster) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Sons Of Satan, Praise The Lord (Audio CD)
According to what Alex Hellid says on the back cover of the CD insert, this contains all of the covers that Entombed has ever done. To say it's a bit eclectic is an understatement.
There are some good covers of metal tracks like Repulsion's 'Black Breath', and Venom's 'Bursting Out', along with 2 great SOD covers ('March of The SOD', and Sargeant D and The SOD'), and a Black Sabbath cover 'Under The Sun', along with the one from Uprising (Scottish Hell), and one by a Swedish metal band (Albino Flogged In Black).
Most of the other covers are from a wider span of music, like Bad Brains (Yout' Juice), Kiss (God Of Thunder), and MC5 (Kick Out The Jams). I can't remember who did the others, but it's more obscure people that you probably wouldn't expect Entombed to cover...
Overall though, it's quite good to listen to, apart from the wired versions of Amazing Grace!!!
Only buy it if you want to own all the covers by Entombed though. There's no new tracks or anything.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Covers Album? Don't Roll Your Eyes...., 30 Oct 2009
This review is from: Sons Of Satan, Praise The Lord (Audio CD)
With any band, the prospect of a covers album is often something that would trigger alarm bells. However, Entombed somehow manage to pull it off with a certain amount of aplomb.

The key to the success of this album is that, despite the excellent diversity of sources (from Dylan to Venom, Cooper to Stormtroopers of Death) this still feels like an entombed album. The trademark vocals of Lars Göran Petrov make even Twisted Sister lyrics sound right in a Scandinavian growl and Alex Hellid's trademark blazing guitar sears your ears, but in a good way.

Highlights of the album are the magical take on Bad Brains' "Yout' Juice", an excellent rendition of Twisted Sister's "Tear it Loose", which sounds as if it could have been an Entombed original, and the beefed up "God of Thunder" from KISS. The rather odd Amazing Grace track is also worth a listen, if only to laugh at.

Overall, a very good covers album, definitely worth a listen.
