ENTOMBED A.D.'s NICO ELGSTRAND Talks To GetYourRockOut At U.K.'s BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR (Video)

Felicity Hall of GetYourRockOut conducted an interview with ENTOMBED A.D. guitarist Nico Elgstrand at this year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, which was held August 7-10 at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

"Back To The Front", the album that was recorded last year by four members of the most recent lineup of the legendary Swedish metal act ENTOMBEDLars Göran Petrov (vocals), Olle Dahlstedt (drums), Nico Elgstrand (guitar) and Victor Brandt (bass) — was released on August 5 via Century Media Records under the band name ENTOMBED A.D. The CD was recorded at Studio Bohus (ABBA, EUROPE) in Kungälv, Sweden with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR). The cover artwork was painted by Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, VADER).

In a recent interview with Metal Underground, Elgstrand stated about the addition of "A.D." to the ENTOMBED name: "We've had some internal turmoil that resulted in a separation of Alex [Hellid, guitar] from the band. [It] turns out he didn't wanna make music and tour on it. [We're] still not sure what the hell he wants to do! When we were about to release the album, he started bringing in lawyers and claimed that the name ENTOMBED belongs to him. Which, of course, it doesn't, but instead of getting into a lawsuit that would've gone on for a long time and wouldn't have made anyone happy except a bunch of lawyers, we decided to add 'A.D.' to the name and get on with what were supposed to do, which is making music and touring as a band. As of now, the name ENTOMBED is on hold for anyone to use until people involved come to a solution. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to happen in the near future."
