ENTOMBED A.D. To Release Third Album In Early 2018

Swedish metallers ENTOMBED A.D. will spend the next few months writing and recording their third album for a tentative early 2018 release.

Speaking about the band's plans for the near future, vocalist Lars-Göran "LG" Petrov told Finland's Rauta at last month's Dark Days Of Helsinki festival (see video below): "First we're gonna be here, get a show, then have some beers with others, and then go home and write a new album." As for a possible release date for the disc, Petrov said: "Next year, early, if the plans go as it should be. And then the cycle goes around again. You make the album, you release the album, then tour."

Petrov also talked about ENTOMBED's decision to release change its name to ENTOMBED A.D. in order to avoid a legal battle with ENTOMBED guitarist Alex Hellid who didn't want his former bandmates to use the ENTOMBED moniker.

"[ENTOMBED and ENTOMBED A.D. are] the same thing — just some minor complications on the way," he said. "But we are here and playing music and headbanging, and that's the most important. But it's the same. It's the same."

Petrov added that he and his bandmates "don't think about" the slight alteration in the group's name. "We just let it roll. As long as we are out, nobody can stop us."

Asked what inspires him to make music and write lyrics these days, Petrov said: "It's boring to sit at home. [Laughs] No, you can always be productive and be out on tour and have no sleep. But that all doesn't matter when you come to the show and you see your brothers in metal. Then it's all worth it."

On the topic of ENTOMBED's musical evolution over the years, Petrov said: "As you go on in life, you experience new things, you wanna try out other things, and ENTOMBED has always tried to do that. Maybe more than for our own good sometimes, but now we're just going straightforward and we just do it again — over and over again. And as long as you don't get tired of it, you just continue. If you get tired of it, you should quit. You don't do it because… If you don't like it, step aside and let it roll."

ENTOMBED A.D.'s second album, "Dead Dawn", was released in February 2016 via Century Media.

ENTOMBED A.D. is:

Lars Göran Petrov - Vocals
Nico Elgstrand - Guitar
Victor Brandt - Bass
Olle Dahlstedt - Drums
Guilherme Miranda - Guitar
