Entombed - Unreal Estate (CD)

Unreal Estate
by Evi Tsitsi at 04 December 2004, 9:39 PM

A completely different live-album from Entombed. A live performance in the Royal Opera House in Stockholm, Sweden, accompanied by the 35-member Royal Ballet. So here we have a live show constituted by the sounds of Entombed and the optical show from the choreography of the ballet.
Initially known as Nihilist, in 1987-89, they recorded the demos Drowned, But Life Goes On and Premature Autopsy. In 1990 the band reformed under the name Entombed, with Nicke, Uffe and David Blomqvist in the line-up, but Alex would soon replace David in the band. The first demo of Entombed was recorded and then came their debut album Left Hand Path (1990). In the same year Entombed recruited a permanent bass player, Carbonised and Monastary man Lars Rosenberg. Both vocalist Lars and guitarist Uffe had previously made their mark with Morbid.
I laughed a lot when I opened the booklet and saw a photo showing a pair of earplugs. Below this photo is written: The official Royal Opera House earplugs handed out by ushers in the lobby for the first time ever.
In this live Entombed chose to play their most slow and melodic songs, for evident reasons. The selection of the playlist has more to do with the albums Uprising (2000) and Morning Star (2001). Most remarkable in the live are the songs Something Out Of Nothing and Night Of The Vampire. The sound of the live is great and the performance of the songs also worthy. Entombed succeed to present the dark and cruel part of themselves, even in an Opera House. The only disappointment is the choice of the most poor and empty songs from their entire discography.
