“Much of our catalogue has not been available for a long time as we’ve been searching for the best option to re-release these albums for fans worldwide… for years. With PledgeMusic we’ve found the ideal partner that helps us to do it our own way, so that the fans can be sure that the reissues are fully controlled by Entombed with full support and co-operation from Threeman Recordings (our own evil empire version of a record company through which we’ve been releasing all our stuff since the To Ride album (our fourth) in 1996 or was it 1997? Wikipedia say 1997 so I guess that’s the truth. Anyway, we want to present these albums in the best possible way, so we’re going to re-master all of them. We may even make an alternative and/or re-mix of some tracks or album available along the way as well as dig out some demo versions. Personally I just can’t get enough of that stuff myself when it comes to other peoples music. Just love to hear things in different ways and get a glimpse of the process… absolutely love that. It’s gonna be fun to work on all that and give you updates on how it’s all playing out. Hopefully we’ll be able to bond with whoever’s got questions throughout this campaign which will just make this all even more interesting and help us relive and revel in this flesh! Been waiting a really long time to do this and I am very very excited to finally be here!” – Alex Hellid
