Entombed, a death metal band from Sweden are one of my personal favourites...

IMO their best albums are probably Candlestine and Left Hand Path... My favourite track is probably Supposed To Rot...
I prefer these two albums because over time theyre style changed....

What does everyone else think?

I think they are an exceptional band. One of the first death metal bands i heard, and although i didnt like them at first, have come to fully appreciate their works, most notably Left Hand Path.

Left Hand Path owns. This dirty distortion does everything for me. However I'm not verrrry fond of Clandestine... I find it to be insipid compared to LHP.

@AZ : Anyway, the death'n'roll albums of Entombed aren't bad ! you gave a try to "DCLXVI - To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth" ? This album is just GREAT.

I like the first albums.
Tho I would not call it Melodic Deth metal, It has the sound of melodic death metal but is isnt melodic death metal.

great band \m/

LHP is one of the most accurate definitions of Swedish Melodic Death Metal. What makes you think it isn't ?

i prefer the old entombed. Left Hand And Cladenstine Are There better stuff. The Wolverine Blues album was a weird change. ever since 1993 they have not been any where as good

I for one love LHP and Clandestine, but also love Wolverine Blues and the later albums. Just superb, Stooges, Motörhead et al influenced rocking with death metal roots still audible. This band is one of my all-time favourites.

Plus, they have the most stylish t-shirts out there

A really great old school act. I am not familiar with a lot of their work, but of what I have heard, I really enjoy their earlier more Death Metal material. Especially the stuff with the chainsaw guitars, as it was coined. It took me a while to actually like the sound, but after I did, I found the riffing to be really wicked. I really enjoy their 'Clandestine' album. A true classic of Death Metal.

I love this band. One of the best bands in the Death Metal scene, especially their first albums. Clandestine is one of the best Death Metal albums ever made, no doubt about that. All instruments blend in perfectly and create a masterpiece. And I don't mind the vocals on Clandestine, even though other people think they're shit

I enjoy LHP and Clandestine very much so. Clandestine may be my favorite of the two, but either way...it's good old school DM.

@Magere Tijn, God of Thunder, as I understand, is a KISS cover by Entombed.

But are you guys telling me that no one likes Wolverine Blues? Some of the greatest shit ever put on record

Actually, I've never heard it so I can't say whether I like it or not. Is it similar to LHP or Clandestine?

I really enjoy "LHP" and "Clandestine" (I actually need a cd version of "LHP", my cassette version is mighty worn), and also liked their "Hollowman" EP. For some reason, I wasn't so big on "Wolverine's Blues" and haven't listened to anything they released after that album.

Hehe, I can relate to that.. I only had Left Hand Path on cassette for many years, taped from someone's vinyl version of the album, but several months ago I picked up the reissue on CD...

Anyway, Clandestine is better IMO - I just think the songs are a lot more memorable. Nice use of movie speech samples as well like "there is no other god - Satan killed him!"

@Dream_of_Hate: Wolverine Blues isn't much like the earlier stuff. The band went sort of "death 'n' roll" with that release, and the vocals, although still raw and kind of growly, sometimes followed a sort of semi-melody line instead of just being growls/screams.

There is no way you can re-make Entombed's Left Hand Path.
It must be the best death metal album next to Altars of Madness (Morbid Angel).
Well, anybody that don't have the CD or LP at home, buy it. You will not regret it.

I've only got Morning Star and Unreal Estate and I'm not too keen on the vocals. However, the music is good and the riffing is pretty catchy. It seems I need to check out Clandestine and Left Hand Path from reading the posts in this thread.

Entombed's Death 'n Roll is fucking killer. I bought Inferno a while ago, and it is good. I really should listen to their Death Metal albums sometime, though.

An amazing band indeed. IMO their best albums are "Clandestine" and "Wolverine Blues", it's really sad that Andersson has left the band, but i heard something about a possible reunion. Also the new EP (When In Sodom) is really great.

Never checked out this band before. I think I'll just go with their first album to start with, as it seems that they changed a lot over the course of years following that particular release, judging from the replies I read here.
