In celebration of the official unearthing of "Resurrected From The Grave - Demo Collection", the mammoth new compilation from Swedish death metal day-ruiners, ENTRAILS, today Cvlt Nation offers up the gnarled decadence of "Total Death."
Comments founding guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist of
the debaucherous number: "This is one of the heaviest song I've ever written.
I got the idea for this when I heard Morgoth for the first time, and their
classic Cursed album back in the '90s. Simple riffing with rotten atmosphere is
the key to create such a head banging song!"
Feel the sonic decay of
"Total Death," now playing at Cvlt Nation!
And if you missed it, get vile with the
sounds of "Breath Of Blood" currently streaming at Invisible Oranges at
THIS LOCATION as well "Voices" still sullying the
airwaves of Decibel Magazine, at THIS LOCATION.
"Resurrected From The Grave - Demo
Collection" is an eighteen-track collection featuring ENTRAILS'
"Reborn" and "Human Decay" demos. The band was initially spawned
in 1990 by Lundqvist but disbanded prematurely due to his dissatisfaction with
their initial demo recordings. Lundqvist continued to write music however and
fifteen years later decided to properly record his compositions with modern
tools, computers, and some help from his accomplice, vocalist Jocke Svensson.

the follow-up, "Human Decay", shortly thereafter. The demos were
originally 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.
Featuring members of
Birdflesh and General Surgery, ENTRAILS adhere to the teachings of
Dismember, Grave, Entombed and Tomas Skogsberg's Sunlight Studio alumni,
wielding their menacing buzzsaw riffs, mutinous vocal onslaughts and sordid
tales of suffering, doom and the undead with the grandiose poise and divine
brutality of their forefathers. Said Ave Noctum of the release, "Very rarely
would you say that a 'demo collection' is essential listening. However, this
demo collection by oldschool Swedish deathsters ENTRAILS, well, is pretty
ENTRAILS' most recent full-length,
"Raging Death", was released via Metal Blade in May of last year.
New Noise Magazine dubbed 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 Sputnik Music added 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
