Entombed AD Singer Explores The "Bowels Of Earth"

Sweden and death metal go together like bread and butter. Of course, something had to kick this love affair off and in the late eighties and early nineties, a string of bands put Sweden on the extreme metal map, perhaps none more well known than Entombed. Hailing from the capital city of Stockholm, their debut album "Left Hand Path" is considered a classic in the genre and as time went on, the group began incorporating their garage rock influences to forge a style now known as death 'n' roll.

In 2014, Entombed as we knew it ceased to be and instead, former members, led by vocalist L.G. Petrov released the album "Back To The Front" under the moniker, Entombed A.D. At the end of August this year, this fresh incarnation of the band released their third album, "Bowels Of Earth," which has been hailed as their best under this name yet. On the first night of the "Hell Over Europe" tour, which saw the band perform songs from the album live for the first time, I caught up with L.G. to discuss the new album, the death 'n' roll tag and the surprising decision to cover Hank Williams among other subjects. You can watch the video in full below.

Diamond Oz: This is the first day of the tour. Thirty shows in thirty one days... Are you ready?

L.G. Petrov: Yes! We hope so. You saw the state of the other guys! But after a couple of days we'll get back in the routine. So yeah, it's good. Today was a lot of travel but you get used to it. The body and soul remembers.

Oz: It's a hell of a lineup as well. Obviously you're headlining but there's Aborted and Baest too. It's like three generations of death metal.

Oz: Obviously right now you're promoting "Bowels Of Earth." This is the first show you've done since the album came out. How would you say it compares to previous Entombed A.D. releases?

L.G.: We feel it's new and exciting. We're looking forward to trying the new songs out live. I have some lyrics about somewhere, I'm still trying to get them into my head. After a few shows I'm sure we'll have it nailed, but tonight we might be a bit scared.
