ENTOMBED: 'Clandestine / Malmö' 2CD Plus DVD To Be Released In November

October 31, 2017

The new lineup of Swedish metal veterans ENTOMBED played its groundbreaking 1991 album, "Clandestine", in its entirety at Malmö Live in Malmö, Sweden on November 12, 2016. Sitting in first with conductor Josef Rhedin and the hundred-plus-member Malmö Symphony Orchestra for Thomas Von Wachenfeldt's arrangement of "Clandestine", the band performed "Clandestine" from front to back for the very first time.

Joining original ENTOMBED members Alex Hellid, Uffe Cederlund (guitar) and Nicke Andersson (drums) in the group's latest incarnation are Robert Andersson (vocals) and Nicke's half brother Edvin Aftonfalk (bass),both formerly of the Swedish death metal band MORBUS CHRON.

A recording of this special event, "Clandestine / Malmö", will be released on November 10 via Threeman Recordings. It will contain a special-edition 5.1 HD sound 2CD plus DVD deluxe mediabook featuring the full performance (orchestra + band) and poster. (Mediabook includes hard-bound booklet.)

In the first act, the full Malmö Symphony Orchestra and a choir performs "Clandestine", arranged for orchestra by Thomas Von Wachenfeldt, with the original members from ENTOMBED sitting in as part of the ensemble and with Orvar Säfström on vocals. In the second act, the band for the very first time plays the entire album live in the original version with the addition of Edvin Aftonfalk on bass guitar and Robert Andersson on lead vocals.

The new lineup of ENTOMBED made its live debut on the Close-Up Båten cruise on October 27, 2016.

Decibel magazine inducted "Clandestine" into its Hall Of Fame series in the December 2016 issue. Editor Albert Mudrian said "Clandestine" is "one of the greatest death metal records — Swedish or otherwise — of all time."

The ENTOMBED band that performed on the Close-Up Båten cruise and at Malmö Live is not to be confused with ENTOMBED A.D., which features ENTOMBED vocalist Lars Göran Petrov alongside Olle Dahlstedt (drums),Nico Elgstrand (guitar) and Victor Brandt (bass).

Hellid and Petrov have been embroiled in a legal battle over the ENTOMBED name for several years.
