YMMV / Entombed

Go To

  • First Installment Wins: Their first three or so albums tend to be the ones everyone brings up in conversation, as they're often considered the best and most influential.
  • Follow the Leader: A lot of Hardcore Punk and Metalcore bands in The Oughts and The New '10s borrowed heavily from Entombed's early output. Some of the worst offenders include Trap Them, Nails, Cursed, Cult Leader, All Pigs Must Die, Homewrecker, Xibalba, and Young And In The Way. Generally, most albums produced by Kurt Ballou tend to fall into this. Even his own band bares some obvious Entombed influences and even covered them.

  • Periphery Demographic: The American Hardcore Punk and Metalcore scene latched on to Entombed to the point where it became its own subgenre called "Entombed-core"
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Left Hand Path is often mentioned in the same vein as Seven Churches and Altars of Madness in terms of just how much it did for the death metal genre, and Wolverine Blues was the album that made Death 'N' Roll popular. The band's early material has been endlessly copied so much though a death metal fan introduced to bands in the vein of Entombed before the band itself may not quite get what the band brought to the table.

How well does it match the trope?
