One of the Sweden’s early pioneers of Scandinavian death metal, the group Entombed, recently performed its complete album ‘Clandestine’ (released 1991) with the NCO under the baton of Josef Rhedin.
The performance with the NCO was just one of the many highlights for the band recently.
In addition to an extensive period of touring coming up, they have also recently been the subject of a national radio documentary about Swedish music, on national television as part of the series ‘Metal Evolution’, and featured on a new TV series called ‘The Songs That Changed Music’.
This time Entombed’s bass player Victor Brandt will be traveling with a new tool in his touring sound kit.
A long time Radial user, he was recently turned on to the JDX guitar amp direct box by an in house sound tech at a club gig in Sweden.
“He said that we really must try it. We plugged it in and my first impression was the smile on Olle, our front of house guy,” Brandt says. “So I knew we were on to something big. When I heard it myself I was very impressed and felt right at home. I didn’t want to give the JDX back to its owner. It had more of the feeling I get when I use an amp I really like. It is still my sound.”
Brandt is now armed with his own JDX: “With the Radial JDX we all really felt that we could step it up a notch. Radial products make me feel safe at gigs and lets me focus on the music instead of worrying about my sound.
“If I would compare Radial to cooking food, I think Radial is that secret ingredient that makes all the difference and makes people ask for the recipe.”
