History

Back To The Front was the name of a 2014 album that was recorded in 2013 by four members of the most recent line-up of Entombed, namely singer Lars Göran Petrov (vocals), Nico Elgstrand (guitar), Victor Brandt (bass) and drummer Olle Dahlstedt (drums). The album would be issued as Entombed A.D. given the exclusion of guitarist Alex Hellid who had not participated in the 2013 Entombed tour.

Singer Lars Göran Petrov and guitarist Victor Brandt joined with Unleashed and Necrophobic guitarist Fredrik Folkare and bassist Alex Friberg (Necrophobic) to form a death metal band called Fireborn. The band was seeking a drummer. Deicide would headline the fifth edition of the annual Metal Alliance tour in 2015. Support on the tour would come from Entombed A.D., Hate Eternal, Black Crown Initiate and another band. April 2015 would see the return of Europe's HateFest Tour. Six Feet Under would headline the bill. Stepping in for the Six Feet Under bass player, Jeff Hughell who was becoming a father, was Victor Brandt from Entombed. Due to financial problems, Continental Concerts cancelled the Metal Alliance Tour. Deicide was continuing on its own. Entombed A.D. was booted from the shows as well.

Guitarist Alex Hellid and L.G. Petrov of Entombed were involved in a legal battle over the Entombed name for several years. Petrov won the right to use the monicker and subsequently released an album and toured as Entombed AD despite Hellid’s objection. The guitarist then registered the name Entombed and started a beverage business called Entombed with the Swedish patent office’s approval. Entombed A.D., with former singer LG, would conduct a North American tour in January 2017 including one show in Vancouver. Support came from Full Of Hell and Turbid North.
