The Swedish death metal band Entrails have announced to their fans the news that they have a new guitar player. The new guitarist is 19 year old Pontus “Penki” Samuelsson and you can read more about the news down below.
From The Press Release
After three successful albums and a whole lot of live shows with ENTRAILS, guitar player Mathias has decided to leave the band for personal reasons.
ENTRAILS comments further: “It has been growing a while within the band so we decided to do what’s better for the band and recruit a new member that can handle the axe of death in the future. Mathias is still our best friend and we wish him the best of luck in his other projects in life.”
No rest for the wicked! ENTRAILS didn’t hesitate at all and recruitedPontus “Penki” Samuelsson, a talented headbanging youngblood of 19 years that can be heard in other Swedish bands like VOID and GRAVESTONE, but has now decided to give this a serious try and become a part of ENTRAILS!
Pontus has already been on stage with ENTRAILS last year at Extremefest as a stand-in for Mathias so he knows what it’s all about. “I’ve been a huge fan of Entrails for many years, so it’s a great honor for me to be a part of the band. Having played live with the guys once before, I knew this was something I wanted to continue doing. When they asked me to join, I was more than ready to be a part of the beast that is Entrails! I can’t wait to see you all on the road. Skål!”
ENTRAILS are happy to announce that Pontus already appears on the upcoming limited“Berzerk” 7″ to be released on the 28th of February!
Side A will feature the title track “Berzerk”, side B a cover of HEAVY LOAD’s classic“Dreaming”.
The single will be available in black (300 copies), green (100 copies) and white (100 copies, excl. only available from HERE!).
Comments ENTRAILS: “With a small sidestep from our work in the massive rehearsals for the new album we decided to do a halfway release. The new song “Berzerk” is a straight forward fist of fury and Death metal terror, with some eeire elements. It’s a natural step from our latest album “Raging Death”. It will also appear on the next longplayer, slightly different in every term as this single was recorded and mixed by Jimmy in Entrails own studio. We also decided to do a cover of Heavy Loads Classic “Dreaming” though we did this one the Entrails way with D-beats and massive sound!”
