Formed in 2014 by founding Entombed member Lars-Göran Petrov, Entombed A.D.
sees the influential Scandinavian death metal legends' punishing work published under a slightly different moniker.
With the courts deciding that the band's original name belonged to its four founding members, Petrov struck out on his own, recruiting guitarist Nico Elgstrand, bassist Victor Brandt, and drummer Olle Dahlstedt, who comprised most of Entombed's final lineup, for the ride. Entombed A.D. released their first album under the new name, Back to the Front, in 2014. Two years later, the band issued their sophomore outing under the same moniker, Dead Dawn, again via Century Media. Later that November, for its 25th anniversary, the original group performed their 1991 sophomore album Clandestine in its entirety with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra & Choir; the show was released in 2019 as the album Clandestine Live. In August that same year, Entombed A.D. released their third full-length effort, Bowels of the Earth. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
