2 Entombed DVDs On The Way

Entombed guitarist Alex Hellid recently spoke to the U.K.'s Live 4 Metal webzine about the delayed U.S. release of the group's "Inferno" album and the band's Threeman Recordings label, among other topics. Several excerpts from the interview follow:

Live 4 Metal: Bass player Jörgen Sandström left the band early this year. Your website says it was due to too much touring. How much is too much?

Alex Hellid: "For him, four months straight. I think he was a little tired of the whole thing and then it's not fun to be on the road. But he's still active in Threeman and is now part of Vicious Art (we just mastered the album and it’s so fucking good it's unbelievable; great metal!). And The Project Hate."

Live 4 Metal: Any plans for a comprehensive Entombed DVD in the foreseeable future? I know you've got the "Monkey Puss" DVD out there.

Alex Hellid: "'Monkey Puss' sucks! We have plans for two DVDs. One documenting 'Unreal Estate', which is us playing with the Swedish Royal Ballet (yes, it's as crazy as it sounds) and the other is planned to be a history of the band with everything we can dig out."

Live 4 Metal: How important is it to get that classic down-tuned guitar sound on an Entombed album? It’s a trademark sound. What’s the secret?

Alex Hellid: "Very important, I'd say. We get lynched otherwise. No secret, just old shit turned up loud. Marshall amps and Boss Heavy Metal distortion. On the first three albums we used small peavey amps and Emg 85 guitar pick-ups. The trick is to not use too many pedals and sound-weakening effects between the amp and the guitar, I think."
