Well, a long long time ago (in 1990 or 1991) in a small village in southern Sweden (Linneryd), Jimmy (Lundqvist, guitarist) and Fredde decided to start a death metal band. Shortly thereafter, Tobbe and Billy joined that band, called ENTRAILS. According to some highly cited rumors, the mentioned four immediately began to rehearse in a furious manner (“in a converted woodshed”) - unfortunately though, attempts to record a demo have, at the time, not yielded a satisfactory result. After two such years Fredde, Tobbe and Billy gave up on a dream; but Jimmy kept on writing songs – until 1998. Ten years later, Jimmy Lundqvist found some old ENTRAILS recordings and, reportedly in a moment of nostalgia, decided they deserve to be released. Helped by modern recording technology, Lunqvist has first spent several weeks choosing the right songs for the release, and then recorded them - all by himself. Except for vocals; after some recommendations from Lunqvist's friends, those were eventually handled by Jocke Svensson. And so in 2009, ENTRAILS' first demo, ‘Reborn’, was finally out. Encouraged by positive response, Lundqvist recycled additional music found on old ENTRAILS demo tapes he released by the end of that same year as ‘Human Decay’ demo. In 2010, ENTRAILS, richer for vocalist and bassist Jocke Svensson, guitarist Matte Nilsson and session drummer Fredrik Widigs, recorded their first proper full-length; ‘Tales From The Morgue’ was issued in 2010 through German label FDA Rekotz. After the release of the album, drummer Adde Mitroulis joined the band on permanent basis. In 2011, ENTRAILS released their second album, ‘The Tomb Awaits’, through FDA Rekotz in Europe and through Dark Descent Records in the USA. In 2012, the band was snatched up by Metal Blade Records.
