Latest Entrails News
Below is our complete Entrails news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
After five successful years filled with four albums, some demos and splits, plus shows and festivals around Europe, Entrails vocalist/bassist Jocke Svensson and drummer Adde Mitroulis have announced their departure from the band, with their last performance being at Netherlands Deathfest last week.
Guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments: "It has been a pleasure having those two guys in the band for all those years. Without them Entrails wouldn't have made the albums and shows that happened in the past. Unfortunately their time just wasn't enough anymore to give Entrails the time and focus that I wanted for doing even more shows and more intense work with the band. It is not easy to combine several other bands plus families when more time is needed to push Entrails even harder. And therefore the guys decided to leave in a friendly matter and what's best for the band Entrails. We wish them all the best of luck in their other projects."
Martin "Fjalar" Mikaelsson is the new man behind the drums; known from bands such as Istapp, Nivlhel and Unchained. Tommy Carlsson (Istapp, Nivlhel and Visceral Bleeding) will take over vocals and bass.
Martin comments: "I'm really looking forward to bringing death upon earth with Entrails as the new torturer of heads!" More...
With the final descent of "Obliteration," the imminent new long player from Swedish death metal legion Entrails, now less than two weeks away, today you can hear the coffinated sounds of latest single, "Obliterate." Check it out below.
Captured by guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist at his own Bloodshed Studios and mixed and mastered by legendary musician/soundsmith Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath, Aeon, Hail Of Bullets etc.) at Unisound, "Obliteration" is a snarling beast of a record boasting nine harrowing psalms of auditory revulsion shrouded in ceaselessly morbid atmospheres that uphold the truest traditions of old-school Swedish brutality.
"I guess Entrails have sold their souls to the devil," said Dan Swanö upon the record's completion, "because there is no other way to explain how a band that's been doing the same style of SweDeath for more than twenty years, can keep making better and better records! In fact, some of the tracks on this album are among the best death metal songs I have ever heard. Such a great album...it pisses me off!" More...
"Obliteration" is the fittingly-titled new studio offering from Swedish death metal militia, Entrails, set to rise from the grave on May 19th via Metal Blade Records.
As a precursor to its official release, today Bloody Disgusting delivers the flesh-eating rumble of seventh track, "Midnight Coffin" for communal ingestion. Listen in below.
Elaborates guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist, "It's about time to unleash some Entrails madness! The sick melodies and d-beat will have your head fall off and roll into the midnight coffin. Join the hordes and let death and darkness embrace you. Welcome to the cemetery!" More...
Swedish death metal riff lords Entrails announced the new album "Obliteration" - the band's fourth full length studio release - with a bang. Check out the new track "Beyond the Flesh" streaming in the player below. The album is set for release via Metal Blade Records on May 15th (G/A/S), May 18th (Rest of Europe) and May 19th (USA).
Rehearsals for the new album began and recordings started on December 22nd. The band finished the recordings mid-January and the album was once more mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö.
Comments guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist: "Finally, we can unleash this beast named Obliteration to the fans out there, this time with a more driven and raw style that shall taste good to everyone's ears if you're into the older simplified death metal that we prefer to play. Recorded in our own Bloodshed Studios and mixed by the mighty Dan Swanö nothing else but slabby, Swedeath can be served."
Pre-orders can be made at this location.

1. No Cross Left Unturned
2. Epitome of Death

In celebration of the official unearthing of "Resurrected From The Grave - Demo Collection" (the mammoth new compilation from Swedish death metal day-ruiners Entrails) today Cvlt Nation offers up the gnarled decadence of "Total Death."
Give it a listen in the SoundCloud widget below. Comments founding guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist of the debaucherous number: "This is one of the heaviest songs I've ever written. I got the idea for this when I heard Morgoth for the first time, and their classic Cursed album back in the '90s. Simple riffing with rotten atmosphere is the key to create such a headbanging song!"
"Resurrected From The Grave – Demo Collection" is an eighteen-track collection featuring Entrails' "Reborn" and "Human Decay" demos. You can also check out the previously posted song "Breath Of Blood" at this location. More...

Comments founding guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist of the track, "'Voices' was made in the mid-'90s for the first time and was one of those songs that underwent a bit of a makeover for the Reborn demo. The result is a fist right to your face!"
Swedish death metal collective Entrails is pleased to unveil "Resurrected From The Grave - Demo Collection," an eighteen-track compilation featuring the band's "Reborn" and "Human Decay" demos.
"Resurrected From The Grave - Demo Collection" will be available on CD and digitally in North America on July 22nd, 2014. Check out the first single "Blood Red" below.
Guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments: "It feels great to finally do something serious with the two demos from 2009. After multiple requests from fans asking about the demos, I had to release the brakes on this, now or never. While we are working on the upcoming new Entrails full-length, we feel better to do this release now which gives a bit more time for upcoming shows and the new album!"

After three albums and a whole lot of live shows with Entrails, guitar player Mathias has decided to leave the band for personal reasons. The band comments:
"It has been growing a while within the band so we decided to do what's better for the band and recruit a new member that can handle the axe of death in the future. Mathias is still our best friend and we wish him the best of luck in his other projects in life."
But there's no rest for the wicked! Entrails didn't hesitate at all and recruited Pontus "Penki" Samuelsson, a talented headbanging young blood of 19 years that can be heard in other Swedish bands like Void and Gravestone.
Pontus has already been on stage with Entrails last year at Extremefest as a stand-in for Mathias so he knows what it's all about: "I've been a huge fan of Entrails for many years, so it's a great honor for me to be a part of the band. Having played live with the guys once before, I knew this was something I wanted to continue doing. When they asked me to join, I was more than ready to be a part of the beast that is Entrails! I can't wait to see you all on the road. Skål!" More...
Swedish death metal band Entrails has just finished recording two songs to be released on a limited 7” vinyl single on the 28th of February. Side A will feature the title track “Berzerk,” while side B features a cover of Heavy Load's “Dreaming.”
The single will be available in black (300 copies), green (100 copies) and white (100 copies). Comments Entrails:
“With a small sidestep from our work in the massive rehearsals for the new album we decided to do a halfway release. The new song 'Berzerk' is a straight forward fist of fury and Death metal terror, with some eerie elements. It´s a natural step from our latest album 'Raging Death.' It will also appear on the next long player, slightly different in every term as this single was recorded and mixed by Jimmy in Entrails own studio. We also decided to do a cover of Heavy Load's classic 'Dreaming' though we did this one the Entrails way with D-beats and massive sound!”
Deep in the forests of Sweden, a long trip into the southern countryside and in the small village of Linneryd, Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist has resurrected the old converted woodshed that the band used as a rehearsal room in the 90's. Behind these walls he was making some nasty riffs during the early 90's until the band was put to sleep.
It has now become a studio/rehearsal room for the band where Entrails can record music instead of hiring a studio to record drums. But it doesn't end there; when Jimmy was done with the studio, he was so inspired that he locked himself in and wrote music for days.
Comments Lundqvist: "These walls have some cool memories and bring me in the mood to create, so it was a good decision to renovate that room and make it a studio combined with a rehearsal room. It took me some weeks during the summer to fix the room and of course I had friends helping me until it was done. Finally we have our own studio which will help us a lot in being even more creative."
Entrails has gathered to rehearse and will soon begin the recordings for a fourth album. The Swedish death metal machine comments further: "We will work a bit harder to do more shows in 2014 and so far we already have a few confirmed. More to follow soon!"

Swedish death metal act Entrails has announced the guest vocalists to be featured on upcoming third album "Raging Death," which is due out May 14th, 2013.
Artists confirmed to appear on "Raging Death" include: Kam Lee (Bone Gnawer, ex-Massacre), Jorgen Sandstrom (The Project Hate MCMXCIX, ex-Grave, ex-Entombed), Rogga Johansson (Paganizer a.o.) and Dan Swano. Fans will hear the guest vocalists on "Death League."
Kam Lee comments: "Entrails is one of the best death metal bands around today hands down - and their track 'Death League' is just pure aggressive cut throat - true death metal in its most rawest and traditional form… the way death metal is meant to be played! When I was asked by the maniacs of Entrails to lend my death growl vomit to the mix I was honored. But the fact that I'm sharing growls alongside other such legendary Swedish death metal vocalist - makes the brutality of the track even more so shredding!! Like a cannibal mutant feeding frenzy of blood soaked gore… this track will make you bleed from the inside out!"
Dan Swano adds: "I love working with Entrails. Their catchy brand of Death Metal is right up my alley. And when I heard that Kam Lee, Jorgen Sandstrom and some other major dudes we're gonna join forces in a track, I happily accepted the invitation without to blink. A kick ass experience indeed! Make sure you hear it!!"
Rogga Johansson also stated: "When asked to do some growling on a track by Entrails all I could think was 'Fuck yes!' I've been a fan of the band for a long, long time, as I had old recordings on a tape I got from a friend. And when I learned that I'd be in such awesome company as the legends guesting, I was even more happy about it! And the song fucken' crushes!" More...

Entrails formed in the 90's, but split up before they were able to release a demo or even an album. It took them until 2008 to come back when guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist rediscovered some old tapes. In a moment of nostalgia he decided that they deserved to be released as they should have been originally. With modern recording technology, the first Entrails demo could finally take shape. After releasing another demo in 2009 Entrails recorded and released its debut album "Tales From The Morgue" in 2010.
Sweden's Entrails has issued the following announcement about working on an upcoming third album:
"We are alive and the music is selling good and we are now in the middle of third opus. Yeah, thats right we will make a new album during this year and have that fucker released in very early 2013.
"The rehearsals are going great so far and the material we will use is pretty much done. Hopefully we will enter the studio and record some drums in a few months.. And we have also signed a new label wich will be announced this month of may that means we're leaving FDA Rekotz for another one.
"We would like to thank Rico and FDA for 2 great years and 2 albums and wish him luck for his job digging up bands here and there... We have some merch left to sell... check it out! (sorry for the bad quality)
"We are also proud to have been giving the chance to play at big festivals/shows this year:
