Entrails Recruits New Guitarist Pontus "Penki" Samuelsson
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!"
Entrails is happy to announce that Pontus will appears on the upcoming limited "Berzerk" 7" to be released on the 28th of February. Side A will feature the title track "Berzerk" and side B includes a cover of Heavy Load's "Dreaming." You can also catch the band live:
