Entombed - To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth

1997 Music for Nations Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-06

After Wolverine Blues, and their parting with Earache/Sony, everyone was anxious to see what Entombed would do next. Recorded in 1996, To Ride spent a year on the shelves before it saw the American Shores. Evidently Entombed decided to release the album under their own label to ensure artistic integrity, (what DID happen on Wolverine Blues???) evidently for good reason, To Ride is ten times better than their previous venture. This may be due to the fact that no one was expecting another Clandestine, but To Ride is riff-o-matic death metal at it's finest. Tempo changes between tracks, a piano interlude, all out rockers, a death blues song... the entire spectrum of death is covered. A good recovery for a band that was almost forgotten.
