Total Tracks:

Entrails was formed in 1990, around he same time as bands such as Entombed, Grave and Dismember. Strangely enough, they never recorded a demo and then went on hiatus. In 2008, the band was resurrected by Jimmy Lundqvist. Since then, they have released albums on a rather regular basis.

For some reason, I am a huge fan of the Swedish death metal sound. The low tuned riffs in combination with the typical, sometimes almost danceable,  groovy rhythms is something you can wake me up for. The first albums of Entombed, Dismember, Unleashed, Cancer, Carnage, and Grave are blue prints for this genre. On the new album, World Inferno, Entrails just does what those bands did on their first album(s). There are no new elements, or anything you wouldn’t expect. For me that is the power of this new release. There is no need to mention a particular song, they are all good and the way old school Swedish death metal should sound like.

Perhaps some will say that it is just old wine in new bottles, but better good old wine in new bottles than new bad wine in old ones!

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
