The follow-up, Clandestine, was just as popular. These first two albums were unique in that they featured what was sometimes referred to as an "chain saw" guitar sound. It was created using the Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal and a Peavey amplifier. After the Gods of Grind tour, Entombed began changing their sound into a mix of hard rock and death metal frequently called Death and Roll. Although this may have turned off many fans, it established their mainstream and critical reputation.
Wolverine Blues and Hollowman are widely considered classics of early 1990s death metal, but were followed by problems with various record companies. In 1999, Entombed released Uprising, which was an anti-commercial return to the band's roots. The follow-up, Morning Star returned to Hollowman and Wolverine Blues style metal. They have since released 2003's album Inferno, a continuation of the 'death n roll' style that has become their trademark sound. 2006 saw the release of new music from Entombed, with the When in Sodom EP on June 6 (or 06/06/06), and the full length album Serpent Saints - The Ten Amendments was released on July 9th, 2007. This album is the group's first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt (of Alpha Safari and ex-Misery Loves Co.), who replaced long-time drummer Peter Stjärnvind in 2006.
