Staff review by
Doc Godin

Now we have two Entombeds lurking around? Details on this fiasco are vague, but the most obvious scenario is that these guys were ready to do battle metal style...Which is less Braveheart meets Conan The Barbarian, and more of Judge Judy...But Judge Judy on a metal musicians budget for legal representation, which is probably something like Barry Zuckerkorn meets Lionel Hutz. Alas, Alex Hellid packed up his toys and went home, leaving the rest of the Entombed crew to release this as Entombed A.D.. Bad news for Hellid, because Back To The Front slays pretty damn hard.

  The funny thing is that in this page you keep the old entombed logo in the CD cover!

Edit: Nah.. It changed... The old Entombed logo is more historical, but the new is more "death"..!!

  Huzzah for more good death metal with good riffs and great vocals.

Rating: 8 So I got my copy. It's good stuff but it's not up there with Serpent Saints - The Ten Amendments which had added sleazy Motörhead/Venom and creepy wierd components as well as more memorable songs.

Still Back To The Front is one of the better DM albums out this year along with Autopsy's new one.

I absolutely love that big fat guitar sound and L.G.Petrov's vocals. Indeed at times they reminded me of Jan-Chris de Koeijer out of Gorefest which they haven't done so much in the past.
