Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. Entombed have recorded a LOT of cover tunes over their career, the majority of which they have distributed through an array of short play releases, like EPs, singles and splits, with a few having appeared as bonus tracks on various version of their full-length albums.
As a sane person, you probably would never have been bothered to track down and squander coin on all of these various items, thus your own exposure to these songs has been limited to internet downloads or possibly live performances. Well, the time was right in for Entombed to gather a whole pile of these things into one place, the Sons of Satan Praise the Lord compilation, and release it through Music for Nations.
Now, as an insane person, i. If you've collected the band's many EPs and singles, and own the self-titled compilation fromyou've already got a large portion of this material. Sons of Satan Praise the Lord is still a great way to have them all under one roof, since you can just bring the two discs to your car or snowmobile and rock the hell out through the collective decades of music that have influenced your favorite death metal-gone-rock'n'roll band.
As I go through this, I'm going to focus more tightly on the tracks I haven't already covered Tear It Loose - Entombed - Sons Of Satan Praise The Lord another of the band's releases. Disc 1 begins with Repulsion's "Black Breath", from the Out of Hand EP and Entombed compilationwhich is an average take Illusion - Gregory Porter - Water the song that doesn't really live up to the original, but it harmless nonetheless.
Lazy Tide - Miss Chain & The Broken Heels - The Dawn naught but a few chords given a dank, bluesy atmosphere, but it rocks.
After this, Entombed cover both "March of the S. D" from Speak English or Die. The former is alright, but lacks those pure NY thrash tones of the original, so I prefer the vocal cover, which sounds great with Petrov's vocals.
A very successful experiment here. Next up, a pretty dense and powerful chugging take on the Misfits "Hollywood Babylon", Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross - The Christian Chapel Choir - What A Friend Me Have In Jesus crushes in the hands of the Swedes, given new life and an even wilder abandon that perhaps the old Static Age version okay who am I kidding.
The remainder of this disc includes the band's cool cover of Alice Cooper's "Black Juju" which they released as an EP inand a punk "Amazing Grace" which went straight through the noggin. Disc 2 starts with Geminist Is The Snake - Devian - Ninewinged Serpent ripping cover of the Dwarves' "Satan", which appeared on the Wreckage EP, and then their very creative spin on the "Hellraiser" theme, which is taken from the excellent Hollowman EP back in ' When, in an altered tone, the expression "Kick out the Jams Motherfucker" erupts, you know what is next, and Entombed have got themselves a pretty fun use of the MC5 classic.
The cover of the Bad Brains "You't Juice" was another surprise, not that they are fans of the reggae-core legends but that they wouldn't pick something earlier that better fit the punk aesthetic. This version is honestly quite weak, losing all of what makes the original special, but it's kind of cool that it can be found at all. Stiff Little Fingers' "State of Emergency" was already on the Full of Hell single and the Entombed compilation, but I hadn't heard their cover of Sabbath's "Under the Sun", which is pretty cruising, in particular the great bluesy lead licks.
We've got the quality Tear It Loose - Entombed - Sons Of Satan Praise The Lord of Unsane's "Vandal X" next, also from the Entombed compilation, and then Twisted Sister's "Tear it Loose" which the band previous released on the Wreckage EP, a fun if forgettable adaptation. The cover of Dead Horse's "Scottish Hell" is another surprise, a good band and good song, sounding fairly natural through Entombed.
The cover of "Sentimental Funeral" from Black Juju is missing here, and the album closes with another rendition of "Amazing Grace" with different vocals Sons Tear It Loose - Entombed - Sons Of Satan Praise The Lord Satan Praise the Lord is pretty interesting due to the eclectic selection of songs included, but only about half the covers actually sound good enough that I'd ever want to listen to them.
The biggest attractions are those I hadn't previously heard, in particular the songs taken from digipacks or overseas editions of albums that featured them as bonus content. It's a decent idea for a release, considering how many covers Entombed had floating out there already, and other bands like Napalm Death, Overkill and Exhumed have Tear It Loose - Entombed - Sons Of Satan Praise The Lord similar albums, though the 2 discs and 27 total tracks are a nice selling point.
I've never been so impressed by a tribute album. Since they formed in as Nihilist, Entombed has released a plethora of music that has been inspired by a wide base of influences. In this compilation of cover songs from previously released EPs, they showcase as many of these influences as possible. One thing I found interesting and refreshing about this cd is that they don't just cover songs that are universally appreciated by metal heads.
They do an amazing job covering such bands as King Crimson, Bob Dylan, Captain Beyond, Rocky Erikson, and Lee Hazelwood with a level of enthusiasm and musical proficiency matched by few.
