ENTRAILS RECRUIT NEW GUITARIST AND WORK ON NEW MATERIAL
Swedish death metallers Entrails welcome new guitarist to the fold. It has been announced that Pontus Samuelsson (Void) has replaced Mathias Nilsson on the guitar. The band are working on new material, to see the light of day on 28 February 2014.
Entrails were formed in 1990. Their main idea was to follow the scene that was growing in Stockholm around that time, with bands like Dismember, Entombed, Grave and many more that cemented the brilliant Swedish death metal sound from Sunlight studio. Unfortunately, all attempts to record a demo at the time did not produce satisfactory results. By 1998, the band had broken up without any recorded material.
In 2008 Entrails reformed with a different lineup, releasing the material that had been composed back in the day. Mathias Nilson had joined the band in 2010 for the recordings of their first full-length Tales From The Morgue. Mathias’ departure was a smooth one, as Entrails comment: “It has been growing a while within the band so we decided to do what’s better for the band and recruit a new member that can handle the axe of death in the future. Mathias is still our best friend and we wish him the best of luck in his other projects in life.”
Mathias has been replaced by 19 year-old Pontus Samuelsson, who appeared on stage with Entrails last year at Extremefest as a stand-in for Mathias. Pontus says: “I’ve been a huge fan of Entrails for many years, so it’s a great honor for me to be a part of the band. Having played live with the guys once before, I knew this was something I wanted to continue doing. When they asked me to join, I was more than ready to be a part of the beast that is Entrails! I can’t wait to see you all on the road. Skål!”
Pontus will record guitars for the band’s new single Berzerk. Side A will feature the title track Berzerk and side B a cover of Heavy Load classic Dreaming.
The single will be available in black (300 copies), green (100 copies) and white (100 copies) vinyl from Metal Blade records.
