Within the last few years Entombed
has done some experimenting leading them in a different direction
then their roots. "Uprising," the latest full-length by
this Swedish quintet, takes the best aspects of both their roots
and their experimental music together to put out a surprisingly
good CD. They seem to be a blues influenced death metal band these
days, with some riffs that sound like the days of "Left Hand
Path" or "Clandestine" and also some that have the
groove catchy sound like a Clutch or a stoner rock band. So basically
"Uprising" should be a CD that all metal fans will enjoy.
"Say It In Slugs" and "The Itch" are my favorite
songs on this album, I can't say which one is the best because they
are both really good and they leave a size fifteen boot impression
on your ass. "Won't Back Down" and "Returning To
Madness" are two other songs on this CD that pack some punch.
A couple more songs that were pretty decent are "Come Clean"
and "Words." They might not have the punch of the previous
four songs mentioned but they are still good. The sound of the fifteen
tracks on this CD basically jump around from death to a blues metal,
every song basically has its own feeling. And with over fifty-three
minutes of music to listen to, it assures you that there will be
something every metal fanatic will like. If you were turned off
by Entombed's last few releases give the band another shot. Even
though it isn't "Left Hand Path" or "Clandestine"
it is definitely a good album, and maybe their best since their
