Entombed’s second album, “Clandestine”, is cut from the same cloth as its predecessor, the epochal “Left Hand Path” (1990). Released during the formative period of death metal – that is, the early ’90s, when bands like Obituary, Carcass, and Entombed were all flourishing creatively thanks to supportive labels like Earache and a multiplying international fanbase. Both “Left Hand Path” and “Clandestine” set the stage for successive generations of death-rooted Scandinavian metal bands. Entombed’s most distinguishing characteristics during this period, their buzzsaw guitar riffs and varied tempos, are showcased well on this album. The intertwined dual-guitar assault of Uffe Cederlund and Alex Hellid is downright brutal. The cover art was by Dan Seagrave.
