Entrails Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Sure, the same week as the release we had some good rehearsals for the show and releaseparty we had in a local club the 9th of september. Upcoming week will almost be the same with rehearsals for the trip to Germany next Friday 16th and for the NRW Deathfest in Vermelkirchen. Thats what happens in the nearest..

2. I have read that the band took a 17 year hiatus did you work with any other music projects during the time?

Well. I closed the band in middle of 90´s and started up in 2008 again so the break was in like 12-13 years. I played with some friends a while and doing some heavy metal covers but DM was my call so i went to do that instead.

3. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album?

Typical swedish sound from the years 90-91 when sunlight did handle the absolute best sound ever for many swedish DM bands that came around. I would say, for this its a sound mix between Left hand path and Like and ever flowing stream but with a more modern touch.. the music itself is a bit darker than the first album Tales from the Morgue. But still some melodic parts and fleshy riffs.

4. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Death and murder. Murder and death. And some horror.

5. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?

We wanted to have something brutal at that time when we was looking for a DM bandname, And after some looking we found the word Entrails.

Splattermovies and horror and stuff like that was our inspirations so i think it helped us to find a bandname.

6. Has the band had any oppurtunities to do any live shows if so what are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
Sure. With this new Entrails we have done some shows and also a minitour in Germany last november

And we have also played at Obscene Extreme this year. and i think the best one was at Obscene Afterparty. We do it very simple on stage.. just playing and not fooling around.

7. Do you have any touring plans for the new release?
No.. no plans for anything yet.

8. On a worldwide level how has your music been recieved by death metal fans?
Hmm. I would say in some different ways. Some like it very much and some don't..

And for those that like us it's really cool that someone understand what we do..

Then there are those that don't like it and say we stole the logo and riffs and copy and clone and bla bla bla. They dont get it yet..

9. Are there any side projects besides this band or is this a full time line-up?

For me this band is full time (beside family and work) right now. Otherwise all other bandmembers have their own project in other bands..

10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
Entrails music and style will not change much for the future.. simlply playing DM combined with some old thrash is what we will do.

11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
For me and my influences to entrails its very simple to listen and come up what kind of bands that inspired me in the beginning.
Before DM arrived to me it was bands like Metallica and Slayer among a tons of other bands that inspired me, and when DM came i combined that with my old influences.

Today i almost only listen to 80´s and 90´s music in different styles..

I cant really say that i like the more modern metal of today. I prefer the old music

12. Outside of music, what are some of your interests?
Well.. not much to write about since the music is almost everything beside my GF and House.

13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Keep on buying our stuff.
