ENTRAILS was initially forged in 1990 by founding guitarist, Jimmy Lundqvist, before disbanding due to his dissatisfaction with their initial demo recordings. Lundqvist continued to write however and saved everything to tape. Fifteen years passed before he decided to record these ancient relics with modern tools, computers, and some help from his accomplice, vocalist Jocke Svensson. The first demo, Reborn, was tracked in early 2009 and the follow-up, Human Decay, shortly thereafter. The demos were initially self-released on homemade CDRs and limited to just fifty copies each though it had already been decided that they would need to be repressed at some point in the future for proper audio consumption. That time is now.
Comments Lundqvist of the track, "'Voices' was made in the mid-'90s for the first time and was one of those songs that underwent a bit of a makeover for the Reborn demo. The result is a fist right to your face!"
Hear "Voices," courtesy of Decibel Magazine, at THIS LOCATION. Featuring members of Birdflesh and General Surgery, ENTRAILS tip their scythes to the teachings of Dismember, Grave, Entombed and Tomas Skogsberg's Sunlight Studio alumni, wielding their maniacal buzzsaw riffs, venomous vocal onslaughts and sordid tales of suffering, doom and the undead with the grandiose poise and divine brutality of their forefathers. ENTRAILS' most recent full-length, Raging Death, was released via Metal Blade in May of last year and earned the adulation of media both stateside and abroad. Metal Hammer noted that Raging Death "should satisfy those who are hungry for something oldschool," New Noise Magazine christened it, "an absolutely perfect slab of catchy, violent Swedish death metal," Stereogum gushed, "Now on their third album, ENTRAILS are still putting young knockoff artists to shame. Perfect for blasting, banging, and bashing," while Fearnet noted, "ENTRAILS manage to call upon the same raw energy that their founder first summoned in the early '90s, and the hookier riffs, haunting solos and occasionally cinematic sound design don't steal that vintage thunder at all; if anything, those elements help keep the material fresh, and the eerie leads, keyboard passages and hot-and-cold dynamics give it an extra infusion of horror." Added Sputnik Music in a 4/5 rating, "ENTRAILS release an extremely-solid death metal album that promises to fuck your sister and worship Satan, even if you don't have a sister. Or a Satan."
