ENTOMBED Covers KING DIAMOND's 'Welcome Home' For New 7" Single

Screaming Records is issuing new, old and borrowed material from none other than the legendary death 'n' rollers from Sweden — ENTOMBED.

While putting final touches to their next full-length album, which is slated for a spring 2013 release, the band has chosen to issue two singles; one is a digital release of a reworked version of the song "Amok", and the other is a limited seven-inch deluxe vinyl single entitled "When In Sodom Revisited". Due on June 25, the three-track, 70-gram release includes a remixed and remastered version of the original "When In Sodom" track as well as an alternate version composed, performed and recorded by Danish artist and sound designer Klaus "Q" Hedegaard Nielsen (BETA SATAN, THE MALPRACTICE). To round out the seven-inch, ENTOMBED entered the studio to record an honorable version of the KING DIAMOND signature song "Welcome Home". As a result, this will actually become the first release by ENTOMBED in the current lineup — with Victor Brandt (TOTALT JÄVLA MÖRKER, AEON, SATYRICON) and second guitarist Nico Elgstrand (who previously played bass for the group).

"When In Sodom Revisited" comes as a one-off print of 475 hand-numbered copies on heavyweight silver colored vinyl. The sleeve has been cut extra thick and comes with a 3-mm spine. It will not come with a dropcard and there will not be a digital release.
