A quartet of Brazilian metal veterans recently teamed up to celebrate Entombed, the Swedish death metal giant formed in the late 80s with iconic vocalist LG Petrov. The idea to record “Out Of Hand”, originally released on Wolverine Blues in 1993, came from guitarist Elizeu Hainzenreder (ex-Desolate Ways) in 2021, the same year Petrov died after a long battle with cancer.
The musician has invited singer Eduardo “Clark” Monteiro (A Sorrowful Dream, Unmaker), bassist Fabrício Bertolozi (Dyingbreed, Horror Chamber) and drummer Paulo Wilges (Mortal Touch, Aterro, Baal Hamon). Production was handled by Roger “Earth” Fingle (Seduced By Suicide, Blood Tears), who has been producing rock and metal bands for over 20 years.
“The idea came in 2021, but being a perfectionist I only do something if I can devote myself fully, it ended up taking a little longer,” commented Elizeu. He added, congratulating his colleagues: “Besides being incredible musicians, they are all my friends. Clark and I have known each other for many years. Desolate Ways and A Sorrowful Dream have shared stages and buses several times. Fabrício kills with Dyingbreed, and Paulo recorded with Mortal Touch the album that I consider the best Brazilian death metal album. Roger Fingle doesn’t need comments, just check his work.”
This cover marks the first recording in more than a decade for Elizeu Hainzenreder, having released “Eternal Dreams” (2003), “Tearful” (2007) and “Last Moons” (2009) with Desolate Ways, a band founded in 1998 and who was one of the big names in Brazilian gothic metal at the time. It’s also a special moment for Eduardo “Clark”, who said, “Entombed’s importance to death metal is unquestionable, and Petrov’s vocals were the mainstays of extreme metal singing! Being able to honor that with this cover is very gratifying, especially at the invitation of a long-time friend like Elizeu.”
