Candlelight Records has set a November 14 U.S. release date for ENTOMBED's latest EP, "When in Sodom". A track from the effort, "Carnage", can be heard at this location.
Planned just prior to the band's upcoming U.S. dates alongside countrymen DISMEMBER and GRAVE, "When in Sodom" finds its long-awaited U.S. release before the band's upcoming new full-length, "Serpent Saints", expected early 2007. It is the band's first new material since 2003 with this limited-edition EP.
ENTOMBED's new album was recorded at Soundland studio in Upplands Väsby, Sweden. The CD is the group's first without the contributions of guitarist Uffe Cederlund, who left the band in September 2005.
As exclusively reported by BLABBERMOUTH.NET on May 12, drummer Peter Stjärnvind left ENTOMBED in order to concentrate on his membership in the Swedish cult act NIFELHEIM. NIFELHEIM guitarist Sebastian Ramstedt (a.k.a. Vengeance from Beyond; also in NECROPHOBIC) told BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "No bad breakup or anything personal between him/us and the guys in ENTOMBED, but heavy touring didn't fit his situation right now." ENTOMBED is currently utilizing the services of drummer Olle Dahlstedt (ALPHA SAFARI, ex-MISERY LOVES CO.) for all of its upcoming European gigs. Stjärnvind and his wife recently welcomed their first child, a daughter.
