Video footage of Swedish metallers ENTOMBED performing a cover version of ROKY ERICKSON‘s “Night Of The Vampire” — with a special guest appearance by former CANDLEMASS singer Messiah Marcolin— on April 24, 2011 at Garage in Märsta, Sweden can be viewed below.
ENTOMBED‘s studio rendition of “Night Of The Vampire” was featured on a 1995 split release with THE NEW BOMB TURKS.
The current lineup of ENTOMBED features bassist Victor Brandt (TOTALT JÄVLA MÖRKER, AEON, SATYRICON) and second guitarist Nico Elgstrand (who previously played bass for the group).
ENTOMBED performed as a five-piece for the first time in years on October 17, 2009 at Arenan in Stockholm, Sweden, with Elgstrand playing second guitar for this one gig only. Handling the bass duties for the Stockholm show and the rest of ENTOMBED‘s tour with AMON AMARTH was Brandt, who was filling in temporarily while Elgstrand took some time off to focus on other affairs.
ENTOMBED‘s latest album, “Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments”, was released in the U.S. on July 31, 2007 via Candlelight/Threeman Recordings. The 10-song effort marked the group’s first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt (ALPHA SAFARI, ex-MISERY LOVES CO.), who replaced Peter Stjärnvind in 2006. Mastering duties were handled by Soren Elofsson at Cosmos Mastering in Stockholm, Sweden.
“Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments” entered the Swedish national chart at position No. 3. This was the highest chart position in the band’s career.
